In some ways, shopping for a wedding dress is like a round of first dates. You try on a few, search for quality, and keep your checklist in mind while trying to find “the one.” But finding your perfect match is magically made a whole lot easier when you get set up by your BFF who, well, totally gets you. That’s kind of how we feel about BHLDN, the dreamy, wedding-focused brand from our longtime best friend, Anthropologie. We already love Anthro for its stylish and totally unique selection of clothing, shoes, accessories and home goods. So it pretty much seems like fate that we’d love the bridal collection from BHLDN as well. But the thing we’re gaga over the most? It’s actually affordable. You can get a crazy gorgeous wedding dress at BHLDN for way under $2,000, with great options starting at $650.
Here’s a few other reasons why we love them:
While shopping at other boutiques can often mean a super limited collection of dresses at a lower price point, BHLDN has a dress for every style bride. Looking for a dreamy and romantic wedding dress? Or maybe something chic and more modern? What about beachy bohemian? Check, check, and CHECK. We can guarantee you’ll be able to browse not just one or two dresses in your price range, but you’ll have a ton of options to choose from.

Online Ordering Becomes Way Less Scary
There can be so much indecision around ordering a dress online. Is the company reputable? How’s the quality? And what about the fit? Ordering from BHLDN truly takes the worry away from online shopping (especially for such a big purchase) because it’s from a brand we know and love. There are also BHLDN Web Stylists who help online shoppers with product information, styling, and sizing FOR FREE.
At a traditional bridal boutique, the process of buying a dress usually involves a 6-month ordering process. That means starting early, making decisions, and sticking with them. With BHLDN, the ordering process is WAY easier. A large number of their wedding dresses are in-stock and ready-to-ship, meaning you’ll get them in a few days. And others are available in as little as a month. That’s 6x sooner than other retailers. Just find your dream dress on BHLDN.com, select your size, and you’ll be able to see the soonest available ship date. Your wedding planning checklist will literally thank you.
