The dress. Perhaps (in our eyes) the hardest part of planning your wedding day. What designer do you go for? What price range? Mermaid or ball gown? The questions are endless and the process can be daunting. However, with the rise of online fashion stores came the phenomena of budget bridal. But do not fear, these are not frumpy, out of fashion dresses. In fact they are very nice.
So why not skip tradition and see what budget gowns have to offer?
Misguided Wedding Collection
Let’s start with Misguided Wedding Collection. No, not your first thought when searching for a wedding dress but these dresses are truly stunning. They have a boho/feminine theme with lots of floaty skirts. Prices start from just £25.00 so they are well and truly a bargain.
Aside from just the big day dresses, Misguided have lots of ‘pre wedding’ pyjamas, this cute satin set is only £30.00. And why not treat the ‘Bride Sqaud’ to a set to! It’s the little things that will make your day seriously special.
Next up, ASOS Bridal. ASOS have a much wider range then Misguided with a huge variety of styles. This also includes a Curve collection offering larger sizes then most bridal stores. ASOS’s dresses are mostly flirty, lace type dresses again with a bohemian feel. Their dresses would most definitely suit for a beach wedding. If you’re not feeling the wedding dresses, ASOS provides a wealth of shoes and accessories for the bride and the bridal party.
This mermaid gown is the perfect example of a budget wedding dress that still looks simply beautiful.
Another example of a great site with budget gowns is Etsy. Most of the dresses on here and handmade and therefore have a certain ‘personal’ feel that you might not get with generic store brought dresses. You’re also more likely to find someone who can make you a custom dress, something bespoke and well and truly your own and all for budget prices. Lace Marry is an Etsy seller who makes stunning made to measure wedding dresses, all for under £200. This beautiful deep V-Neck wedding dress really highlights the benefits of custom dresses.
