Attention micro-budget brides!  Are you ready to feast your eyes on some seriously affordable frock-age?  Well, thanks to bride Amanda, this week’s CAI/GOI post has me showcasing absolutely nothing over $350.  Check. It. Out.

Dear Broke-Ass Bride,

I’m in love with the Allure 2320 and can’t afford it. I need my dress to be 350.00 or less. Any “get over it” suggestions?

  • Brittney

    When I went to the link, the dress she wants is on sale for $332.80. So now she can afford it. 🙂

  • Especially like bridal gowns 3, 4, 5, 12, 13 & 19. Great picks for the budget bride!

  • Rachael

    Before my mom told me that she was absolutely paying for my wedding gown no matter what I said (and hey, I won't complain!), I was planning to get a full-length white bridesmaid's dress. I loved some of Alfred Angelo's options. I also have a friend who got her dress at one of those "we buy all the overstock from other stores" stores for $50 and it. was. gorgeous.

    But Brittney's right–that dress is on sale! If I were Amanda, I'd be so excited right now.

  • A v-neck bridesmaids dress in white or Ivory will work beautifully! Watters has some wonderful ones! all under $300!

  • Deanna

    Just be careful about ordering from SeaBridal – everything I've heard about indicates – or screams – "scam website". (Including a story from a bride who got a $2000 credit card charge from them, when she ordered a $300-something dress). So just be wary!
