20 Incredible Wedding Dresses for under $1000

Now, I love a designer wedding dress as much as the next girl (I was a Jenny Packham bride after all) but I am also firmly of the belief that as magical as your wedding day is, and as much as it should be everything you dreamed of and more, it should not break the bank! Nor does it have to, especially your wedding dress for there are budget friendly options every way you turn – and I am not talking poor quality, unethical, designer knock offs. Today I set out on a one woman mission to prove you could buy a swoonworthy, and even designer, wedding dress for less than $1000, and was absolutely blown away with what I found. So here are 20 of the most incredible, delectable and affordable bridal gowns you ever will see…..

Vintage

Vintage wedding dresses are so much more than just timelessly elegant and beautiful, they are also a more affordable alternative to designer or bespoke for a unique bridal look (after all, it is a miracle some of these dresses have survived 50, 60 or 70 years, so the likelihood of 2 the same having made it….)
