When you consider that the average duration of a wedding ceremony is roughly half an hour and the reception comes out to about four, it makes complete sense that not all brides are interested in spending their life’s savings or, say, the price of a car, on a dress they will likely wear for four and a half hours plus pictures. If you happen to be one of these ladies (like an office friend of mine who actually requested this story!) and have impending nuptials on the horizon, then you’ll be quite pleased with today’s roundup of wedding dresses under $1000. From off-the-shoulder to long-sleeve and classic strapless styles, we’ve got something for every bride and budget!

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
