20 Breathtaking and Budget Friendly Wedding Dresses (ALL Under $1000!)

Recently I’ve been starting the week with an oggle at some of the stunning new collections for 2016, sharing the latest lovelies from top bridal designers such as Claire Pettibone, Jenny Packham and Ersa Atelier. Whilst these names and their dresses may have us all swooning, I’m all too aware that for many brides (and I was one of them) they simply break the budget. And as much as I believe every bride should walk down the aisle feeling a million dollars, I am also firmly of the belief that doing so shouldn’t cost a million dollars. So today’s post is all about how you can save a few pennies without scrimping on style, with 20 gorgeous gowns whose style, and price tag, makes my heart sing!…..
