20 Dreamy Wedding Dresses That Look Way More Expensive Than Their Price Tag

One of the biggest obstacles I came across when shopping for my wedding dress was finding The One without going way over budget. While one of my dream dresses I tried on had a hefty price tag of $8000, I simply couldn’t afford to part with that much cash. (A word of advice for brides-to-be: Don’t tempt yourself by trying on gowns that are way beyond your budget!)

While I was disheartened that I couldn’t attain that designer dress, I quickly snapped back to reality and realized there were plenty of beautiful frocks that were well within my means. And because finding said dresses takes time, energy, endless searching, and let’s be honest, can get pretty exhausting, today I’ve done the hard work for you.
