10 Wedding Dresses Under $1,000

As a fashion director, I’ve styled my fair share of wedding dress shoots. As a TV host I’ve covered everything from the best bets of where to shop for your gown to bridesmaids do’s and dont’s to what to buy the bride and groom. As a stylist and style expert, I’ve helped clients find the right gown at the right price, helped dress the groom when he doesn’t want a tux and always suggest the bride-to-be have a reception dress because if you can avoid the weight of a gown when it’s time to get your groove on the dance floor, then you should.

The scoop with these dress picks? Well, after a friendly game of tennis, my friend Amy mentioned her friend had asked her to go from being a guest at her wedding to taking the wedding photographs as well. Amy’s a professional photographer so that’s easy. But the kicker in this story is the wedding is in two weeks and while they’ve had all the other tasks and choices completed for months they were missing a few important ones. I immediately asked about the dress because in my world it’s all about the dress and the photography. (If I’m attending a wedding then it’s about the food, drink and dancing.) Amy says,”She hasn’t gotten her dress yet.” Crazy, right?! She said it had to do with part budget and part at a loss of what to wear. I get it, weddings are stressful and the dress is a big part of it. You want to look GORGEOUS, but wearing a dress for just one day with a hefty price tag is daunting. Well, challenge accepted. I offered some advice on the spot and then decided to find 10 wedding dresses under $1,000 bucks that could be found online or in store at the last minute.
