Beautiful Budget Friendly Wedding Dresses

No comments:
Shopping for a Bridesmaid dress on a budget is hard — like really, really hard. It requires creativity, compromise and serious searching both online and in stores. However, it is possible to find a dress that matches your style, price point and vision. When dress shopping, try not to feel defeated. Chances are, you won’t have a “Say Yes to the Dress” moment. I didn’t.

What’s most important is finding a dress that fits you and your budget. Then, once you find your dress, stop looking! Feel confident in your purchase, and rock it on your wedding day.
To prove that beautiful, stylish dresses exist (and to inspire skeptical brides-to-be), I found cheap alternatives that mimic pricier styles. Now, go forth and shop!

Separates are trending big time in the wedding world. Create your own unique look with a floor-sweeping skirt in tulle or lace and a dainty, elegant tank or blouse in silk or matching lace.

Dare to bare (some leg)? Shorter hemlines mean big savings. If you’re planning a casual, outdoor wedding, this might be the way to go. Or maybe a Southern summer wedding is in your future. A short dress would be ideal for hotter temps.

Simple and streamlined doesn’t mean boring and bland. Straighter styles are chic, comfortable and oh-so-cool. These dresses often come with lower prices tags, too.

A little bit of beading goes a long way. If you’re really into the glam, princess look but on a tight budget, consider a toned-down version of an over-the-top runway look. Details make a big difference when it comes to Bridesmaid dresses. Find one with strategically placed beading (instead of all-over) for a similar feel to ball gown styles, but without the hefty price.

For the bold, statement-making brides, watercolor florals and pale pinks and blues are very on-trend for next year. Going the colored or printed dress route also opens up your options to other retailers, not just bridal boutiques, which are often more expensive.
