When it comes to wedding gowns, it’s never a bad idea to look around for a discount. And for all of the bargain hunters out there, here’s some good news—the places you already like to shop have bridal collections that you never knew about (at least I certainly didn’t). So when you start looking around for what to wear on your big day, you might as well give these shops a try, first thing! I mean, you already like to buy your clothes from there, so why not your wedding dress, too?
From Free People to J. Crew, you can find bridal lines from your favorite brands that fit your personal style and stay true to the brands you know and love with just a hint of something special added because it is only one of the most important days of your life and all. For example, the gowns at Free People are fit for the boho bride, which is perfect because if you already shop at the store, you’ve fallen in love with their baggy silhouettes and light, airy fabrics.
Explore the brands that you didn’t know had bridal lines (until now!). You won’t want to miss out on snagging a super stylish dress, often at a lower price point, by looking at these retailers. Prepare to fall in love with these fit-for-your-wedding ensembles, ladies!
