I got the call this week! My wedding dress is in! Ahhhh! So excited!

The other day, I was talking to a friend about the disgusting amount of money we spent on our wedding dresses. I originally budgeted for $600, and I blew it. I should have known better. If you go into a bridal store with a budget like that, it just won't work. Sure they have dresses that fit into a $600 budget, but if you even think about putting on a more expensive dress to "just try it out" you won't be going back.

In favor of all of my friends that have been getting engaged lately (congrats ladies!), I thought I would share some affordable, quality wedding dresses. Don't roll your eyes just yet. These dresses are awesome!

JCrew $495
BCBG $328
The Limited $398
Alfred Angelo

So these are just a few ideas and all of them are under $500! There are so many options out there! You don't always have to pay an arm and a leg to get a fantastic dress. Maybe I should have taken my own advice. C'est la vie!


  1. no matter what you spent, I'm sure you'll look like a million bucks!! I can't wait to see you as a beautiful blushing bride!!! :D

  2. What an exciting time for you. These dresses are great.

    I see that you are also a donut fan and that you entered to win the donut pan on Iowa Girl Eats.

  3. I love all the JCrew dresses and the JCPenney dresses...nice, beautiful, and affordable!
