Sizes: 10 to 30
Wedding Dresses Under $300
Azazie’s most expensive wedding dress costs $749 out of nearly 300 dresses (at the time of writing) that span dramatic ball gowns, sexy slips, and so much more — is that not impressive? Well, they also offer a handy at-home try-on system that will only run you $10 (for bridesmaids and mother of the bride dresses) or $15 (wedding gowns) with free shipping and returns. From there, you can have your very own “yes to the dress” moment in the comfort of your own home and let the tears flow freely. If you fall in love with one of the try-ons, you can purchase it immediately. Otherwise, simply ship any no-gos back with the pre-paid label.
We can’t possibly choose a favorite, but we can confidently say that the Saskia dress ranks very high on our list. One look at the off-the-shoulder crystal straps, cathedral train tulle and lace all throughout, and semi-sheer slit — and you’ll understand why no one could possibly have cold feet about this vision.
Sizes: 0 to 30 (you can also enter your measurements for custom sizes)
Price range: Starts at $239
If you’re looking for a wedding dress that has a lot of purposeful detail, Anthropologie’s bridal line BHLDN has great options. The site boasts everything from Art Deco maxi dresses priced under $300 to off-the-shoulder boho gowns under $2,000. The label also sells shoes, veils, jewelry, and clothing to outfit all of your bridesmaids, guests, and even moms — it’s truly a one-stop wedding shop. One of our favorites is the Sanders Dress ($390). It gives off such Great Gatsby vibes and will make you feel like you’re at a posh party (a.k.a. your wedding) in East Egg. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “Love isn’t like it is in the books,” but this frock gets pretty darn close.
Sizes: 0 to 16; 16W to 26W
Price range: Starts at $275
What sets Fame and Partners apart from other wedding dress retailers is that you can design your own wedding, honeymoon, or bridesmaid’s dress using The Custom Studio. You pick a base style (like the Wrap) and adjust the fabric, color, silhouette, and more. But if that seems like a disaster of indecision in the making, then fret not, because there are plenty of darling, ready-to-made options like the pictured Nancy Dress ($379). Small tweaks aren’t out of the question, either. Want midi-length instead of maxi? No problem. The raised spot georgette fabric combined with a fitted, semi-sheer bodice, banded waist, and tiered skirt is a recipe for wedding day success. Best of all, standard shipping (four to seven weeks) on all dresses is free.
