Wedding Dresses under $500

One show that I love to binge at the moment is Say Yes To The Dress. I love everything about the glitter and the tulle, and seeing brides find their dream dress. Watching the show, and being a recent bride myself, I know it can be hard to find the perfect dress in your price range, as well as one that complements your body shape. Wedding dress shopping can get expensive!

Today I've collated some of my favourite dresses under $500 to help you narrow down on that budget. The list below is in price order - ofcourse - only because I like to shop on the low>high filter.

Meshki / Celine Strapless Maxi Dress in White / $89

Honestly, at $89 I don't think you can lose. What I love about this style is that it's super simple, pairing the split with the strapless neckline is gorgeous. This style would look stunning on an hourglass shape body.

In case this is the kind of dress you're looking for, here are some words that might help with your search: Strapless neckline, straight neckline, maxi, thigh high split, fold over neckline, princess panel seams, princess bodice, sheath dress, strapless dress.

My favourite part about this dress has to be the neckline! Because the bodice has boning in it, it will tuck your tummy right in and accentuate your upper half. This style is also quite fitted so it will hug your natural curves at the hip. This style is also great for an hourglass figure.
