We all know weddings can be expensive. And there have been many articles written on how to budget wisely so that your wedding can still be affordable yet consisting of every details you have always dreamed of.
We are not experts at wedding DJs for rental, or great, affordable wedding location secrets in UK; neither are we well versed in cheap wedding caterers or best wedding photographers in US, we do know where to go to find affordable wedding dresses, bridal jewelry and accessories!
Personally we love love loveeee BHLDN! Myriad of beautiful wedding gowns at reasonable prices. Not only can you find wedding dresses, you can also check out their bridesmaids' dresses in so many styles and color themes!
From simple to elegant, boho to romantic, we have a few favourites from BHLDN this season. Firstly, we adore the Penelope Gown! At under $1000 with so much details, and truly romantic design, it is our dream dress.
Next up, the Nina Gown (similar to Penelope but sexier!), is also a reasonably priced dress with great details to boot.
Lastly both the Rosalind
and the Hayden Gown took our breaths away.
Slightly pricier but with a boho-elegant designs which are so unique!
If you love BHLDN but still find the gowns a little over your budget, you can try waiting for their sale to snap up some good finds.
Other ideas for cheap wedding gowns is to check out Etsy. With many artisans offering competitive prices, you can even have your gown made to your sizing, while having an input in the design of your wedding dress! Likewise, you can also consider sourcing your bridesmaids' dresses from Etsy.
J-Crew is another source for bridal and bridesmaids dresses. Again, there are many designs to choose from, with a wide range of prices to suit every budget.
For instance, we love this classic design, the Nadia Dress. Doesn't hurt that the price is so reasonable!
Also lovely is the Karlie Gown. Again, very elegant and classic looking!
Another brand we love is Chi Chi London. Their bride and bridesmaids dresses section (as well as their other dresses) are always looking so pretty!
We did try on their Frances dress in champagne ivory for an event. While the lace is a little scratchy, the midi dress gives off a lovely vintage vibe. It is a keeper! While brides may want to splurge for a more expensive gowns, this is a perfect site for bridesmaids looking for affordable dresses!
And lastly another site we love for bridesmaids' dresses is Little Mistress. Their dresses are always so stylish, and there are many designs available!
