We pretty much swoon over J. Crew's affordable wedding dress collection -- and we can't believe you can score this hugely impactful tulle ball gown skirt (left) for $595, or the utterly classic Corrina gown for $495.

There's a range of price points in Nicole Miller's bridal line, but we are loving several of the lower-priced gowns. Take for instance the chic, silky satin Lia dress offered at $730. Wowza!

You probably don't think of the retailer Nordstrom as a bridal resource -- but maybe you should start. It offers a big selection both in store and online. For a darling short dress option, we love this Eliza J jeweled sleeveless satin tulip dress for just $198!

 

BHLDN

Oh Anthropologie, you do slay us -- time and time again. The brand's BHLDN bridal line is full of amazing gowns with a totally individualistic flair. There's a range of price points, but we love several in the lower-priced range, including this $800 Va Et Vien design exclusively for BHLDN with such a unique silhouette. Bonus: The gowns often go on deep sale.

The classic bride may want to check out Ann Taylor for its well-priced timeless pieces. This duchess satin strapless peplum wedding dress skates the line between classic and on trend -- and it's a steal at $650.

You'll find Alfred Angelo's wedding gowns often come with three-digit price tags. Check out this bubble-hem stunner we love for $625, or this pretty lace gown for $999 from the Modern Vintage collection. (Also try the retailer for a spectacular selection of bridesmaids' dresses.)

You know about David's Bridal as the established go-to for well-priced dresses, but did you also know about its designer collaborations? Try this $928 beauty from the White by Vera Wang collection on for size. (It kind of reminds us of the gown Khloe Kardashian married Lamar Odom in, if you're into that kind of thing!)

Once Wed

Why not buy a gently pre-worn wedding dress at Once Wed? You'll score a deeply discounted price on designer brands. And we kind of love the idea of keeping the cycle of bliss and love going after getting married in a gorgeous gown you'll never wear again anyway. (Consider selling after your big day, too!)
