For many brides-to-be, finding the dream dress is one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding. That is until you peek at the price tag. Wedding dresses can add up to a lot of money, with some spending an average of about $1,800 or more on one. The perfect dress doesn’t have to cost a fortune though. There are plenty of beautiful gowns (some even designer) available at retailers for under $1,000.
Don’t believe us? Just take a look at some of the stunning options available from retailers like David’s Bridal, Nordstrom, BHLDN, and more this season. From the intricately embroidered to the figure-flattering pieces and more, scroll through to discover a dream dress that won’t cost you a fortune.
