Channel Keira Knightly in a Short Wedding Dress That Won't Break the Bank
This is the first of a series of posts I will be doing on affordable wedding dresses. Wedding dresses are notoriously expensive, and usually with good reason; they are made from the finest lace and silks and feature the best stitching skills.
But for those of us who can't afford the Vera Wangs and Alice Temperleys of the wedding dress world, the bargain wedding dress pickings are a bit slim. Most cheap wedding dresses are, how shall I put it, crap. They're stiff, shiny and look as though they'll go up in flames if you stand too near a candle.
But brides on a budget need not be discouraged. Over this Monday series I will be showcasing some beautiful wedding dresses, in various styles, which have a very low price tag. They come from wedding designers, the high street and Etsy.
Don't believe me? Take a look at these short wedding dresses; they're all pretty enough to rival Keira Knightly's short wedding dress and they're all under £600.
Lucinda Dress - Minna
Minna is a fashion brand that specialises in affordable wedding dresses with a bohemian vibe. The Lucinda Dress is one of their best selling and you can see why. It's got a seventies feel and is crafted from Scottish lace madras and silk.
Asos Midi Dress with Lace Inserts
It's pretty and simple, plus it's under £50!
Aisle Be There Dress in Lily - ModCloth
I love this 50s style wedding dress from ModCloth. Aptly named Aisle Be There, it's crafted from cream satin which needs no other embellishments except its luscious folds. It's a classic style that will never go out of fashion.
Limited Edition Ethereal Mini Dress - Free People
This white lace dress from Free People mixes a Victoriana look with a bohemian feel. It's loose fitted and long sleeved, a lovely style on any shape but especially the lucky long legged ladies.
Goddess Short Dress in Champagne - Coast at John Lewis
Think Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch for your big day. This halter-neck dress is a gorgeous style with a floaty skirt and timeless feel.
It would be great for a classy ceremony with a golden age of Hollywood feel.
I hope these dresses have provided some inspiration. I'll have another affordable wedding dress post next Monday.
