10 Wedding Dresses Under $500

If you’ve ever looked for a wedding dress under $500, you know it’s not an easy feat. Granted, you’ll have an easier time finding short wedding dresses at shops like J.Crew for that price, but when it comes to below-the-knee styles they tend to be far and few between. While it’s not easy to find wedding dresses under $500 that combine both quality and style, a little bit of digging around on sites like ShopStyle and stores such as David’s Bridal or even Etsy can produce some hidden gems. One thing to note is that when shopping for a wedding dress under $500 or even $1000, you’re not going to find as many embellishments as you would in the higher price ranges. That’s not always a bad thing, but it’s just good to remember if you have your heart set on a wedding dress with lots of beads of other detail you’ll have a harder time find one. Lace is a great alternative, however, and if you can get on board with having a wedding dress with lace or chiffon overlays vs. sparkle, your search will be way easier.

I’ve compiled my favorite 10 wedding dresses under $500 below that I think would look gorgeous at everything from a beach wedding to a black-tie affair. No matter what your budget, you’re sure to find a dress you’ll love saying ‘I Do’ in.

    Who makes the dress that shows up as the “cover” for the article or is this the custom referred to in the comment above?

  2. Ack I wish I could! I just checked and they seem to have taken down their store. 🙁 I went ahead and deleted the photo so as not to get people’s hopes up. It was gorgeous! I would do a search instead for blush lace wedding dresses to see if you find anything else you love. 🙂
