Budget Wedding Dresses

When I posted about budget wedding dresses last week, your response floored me. You girls are thrifty geniuses! Thank you to all of you who shared ideas with each other, or emailed me pictures of your stunning and affordable wedding gowns. I thought I’d post a roundup of some of the dresses that blew me out of the water. I hope it gives us all new ideas, and the feeling that affordable dresses are awesome dresses. (and, as an aside, if you are spending more then this on your dress you have no need to feel guilty. I’m not this thrifty either.)
This dress almost made my head explode! It is a Melissa Sweet bridesmaid dress, it comes in white (if you want traditional. It would be stunning in black too, if you ask me). According to a commenter runs about $299! Whhhaaaa?
Or how about this sassy Melissa Sweet bridesmaid dress? What do you think they would charge if it was in the wedding dress section? Probably 10 times as much. Literally.
Blogger Guilty Secret’s wedding dress rocks my socks off. Not froofy, not fluffy, just simple and stunning. And what is it? Ah, yes, a bridesmaid’s dress in white.
Here is blogger Marie-Eve rocking a Target dress she got on sale for $65! She said, “Obviously I would have been ready to pay more, but after this why would I?”
Reader Elizabeth rocked a full scale traditional dress she fell in love with at $1700 and couldn’t afford… until she found it on ebay for $150.
And how about this Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dress? So simple and chic, and in the $300-$400 price range.
And I’m just throwing this BCBG dress in because I like it… and it’s $398 (why? Because the word wedding isn’t in the description of the dress)

And that list doesn’t even cover those of you who wrote in with pictures of dresses that you’d scored for pennies preownedweddingdresses.com, or bought from a sample sale. Keep those stories coming, and I’ll keep sharing them.
