#10: To Always Love via Lulus
This gorgeous, all-lace gown is exclusive to Lulus and has all the essentials you’d want in a wedding gown. And with that price point, you’d be hard pressed to find a true competitor. Lulus has great quality pieces that fit beautifully on the feminine figure. The white maxi you see here features a slight mermaid shape, sweetheart neckline, and bustier bodice.
This tulle, off-the-shoulder ball gown is an absolute dream. It comes in a variety of colors, but also white for our more traditional brides. The reviews are exceptional, and it comes in plus sizes as well (it’s advised to size up by one). If you’re looking to bring in some princess vibes and fairy-tale qualities, this is the style you’ll want to try to find. And for the price point, this one can’t be beat!
We found the right choice for a destination wedding, specifically one that may be happening seaside. This light, ruffled trim beauty is really flattering for a variety of shapes and sizes. It also comes in a gorgeous eucalyptus shade for those who want something richer (or for festivities instead of the actual ceremony).
Stunning and sexy, this bodycon, mermaid style is incredibly trendy right now—but it’s also versatile for styling and personalizing to your liking. It’s simple, which is why it works so well! Whether you’re a bride with a minimal, modern vision or someone that truly wants the glam experience, “Lock it Down” can give you that with the right accessories.
David’s Bridal has upped their game in recent years and carries some of the most recent designs and trendy styles. Of course, they have the classics as well—and that’s where this illusion, V-neck lace wedding gown comes in. It’s a timeless piece that will always look incredible walking down the aisle.
Here’s another sexy number that is just as versatile as its bodycon predecessor. We love the satin-inspired champagne finish, and the ruching in the torso makes it undeniably flattering for all shapes and sizes. The back lace is classy and sensual, and it can also be personalized easily, depending on your vision for accessories.
For those looking for a more casual dress, and one that is perfect for springtime, check out the latest and greatest at Zara. For under $100 you can find a gorgeous, embroidered dress to say your garden-esque “I do’s” in. It’s also a great snag for those looking for rehearsal dinner options.
BHLDN carries so many incredible designers and dresses, including this Jenny Yoo “Charlotte” gown. We’re in love with its chic, modern lines and the fact that it includes pockets is always a sure win in our books. This one is a little more pricey than others on the list but still within a range that works for more frugal brides-to-be.
Absolutely do not sleep on ASOS. They have so many incredible styles at a wide array of price points. We are loving this sensual “Beatrice” dress that shows off a bit of skin while staying within the timeless confines of a classy bride. The sleeves fall at just the right spot on the arm, and that slit will give you a bit more freedom to get loose on the dance floor.
Etsy is another great spot to find exactly what you’re searching for. From retro, to true vintage, to bohemian beauties, scroll through handmade and found pieces at affordable prices. We love this bohemian-flavored style that embodies romance in all its flowing glory.
