A brand new year means a brand new set of proposals, engagements and impending weddings to look forward to! And for our new bevy of brides to be, the start of your exciting journey to the big day.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to spend a fortune to look a million bucks on your wedding day (phew!). And although a custom couture creation would be a dream come true for most brides, there are loads of chic and affordable ‘off the rack’ designer gowns that will also guarantee breath-taking bride status, without the hefty price tag.
We know how incredibly hectic wedding planning can be, (not to mention you have a life to live outside all the bridal madness!), which is why we’ve searched high and low for the most fashionable and flattering gowns that’ll keep you on budget, without compromising on style. The best part? They’re from some of your favourite designers like Alex Perry, Carla Zampatti, Jonathan Simkhai and more.
From classic fairytale gowns and boho inspired dresses, to modern fuss free designs you’ll wear beyond the big day, we’ve got you covered. And with prices starting from just $350 (and nothing over $2500), you’ll be sure to find the perfect dress, while keeping the old wedding budget in tact!
