This season, you can find an inexpensive wedding dress that has plenty of pretty style!
I'll be the first to admit, that the term 'reasonably priced' in the wedding dress world, is actually quite relative. I think I've shared on the blog before that, for me, purchasing a dress over $150 or so is a rarity, so even a $300 dress sounds steep. However, when seeking out the perfect wedding dress, in a market where prices can exceed many thousands of dollars, finding a wedding dress under $1,000 is considered shrewd shopping, and if you can find a bridal gown under $500, less -- well -- you've really lucked out! Fortunately, many retailers who now carry bridal gowns seem to understand that brides-to-be want high style at reasonable pricing, and some collections like BHLDN, ASOS, J.Crew, Rent the Runway, and ModCloth, have really perfected the selection of these reasonably priced bridal gowns.

Sometimes even big designer bridal names will offer moderately priced dresses. This Nicole Miller wedding dress comes in under the $1,500 mark, and is such a hot style!
This next group is one of our favorites, especially for a modern vintage style ! ModCloth has really expanded their bridal collection this season, and it is full of delights for brides. I love this short City Hall ready look (Beyond the Bells Dress in Ivory) , and this long elegant goddess-like gown (Perfect, As Planned Dress from ModCloth). They also have bridal accessories and fantastic bridesmaid dresses!
Of course it goes without saying that any of these dresses would be lovely as a second wedding dress option, or for a destination wedding, and some of the styles would make wonderful reception dresses as well!
With any luck you've found the best wedding dress for less! Don't forget you can also look to beautiful designers on Etsy, like Carousel Fashion and MilaMiraBridal, for reasonably priced handmade options as well!
