How to have a beautiful wedding day look all under 950 dollars!!! For serious!!!!


I am the first to admit that I love me some designer gowns, buuuuut I am also a realist. I understand that not everyone can drop 6,000 dollars on a gown. And I fully believe that you can shop on a budget and still have an AH-mazing wedding gown. For some reason stores like David’s Bridal have this stigma attached to them which I totally don’t understand! I mean, you can style a $12,000 gown to make it look cheap... and I fully believe that you can take a 500 dollar gown and make it look like a million bucks. Aaaannnnnd, if people wanna be haters than they don’t need to be invited to your wedding. So here are a few of my favorite gowns styled up to make you look super fancy. All under 950 dollars!!! Seriously, you are gonna look hot.
