Celebrating the love of two people is cause for celebration, but after everything is said and done, weddings are hella expensive!
Sure, you’re happy for your friends’ eternal flame, but you can’t say the same for your wallet. Wedding season (aka broke AF season) ultimately leaves you stuck with an expensive dress you’ll likely never wear again. While you can’t put a price on love, you can definitely put a price on a dress, and by price, I mean under $150.
Take a look at the best stores to find affordable dresses for weddings below, and save that cash money!
If your bougie taste in dresses doesn’t match your budget, Fitzroy Boutique is the perfect place for you. Rather than buying a dress, the studio allows you to rent designer frocks at much cheaper prices ($80 – $110). Think covetable labels like For Love and Lemons, Narces, Elle Zeitoune and more.
M Boutique isn’t only a good destination for trendy summer outfits, it’s also filled to the brim with a number of party dresses and jumpsuits, perfect for weddings. Right now select styles are starting at $59 which is tres affordable if you ask me. They also usually have adorbs two-piece top and bottom sets, if you’re feeling a little more scandalous.
Let’s not forget about online stores too! Wedding invitations usually give you loads of time to get your affairs in order, so get on ordering a dress stat from Fashion Nova. The online retailer who is known for their ridiculous prices (starting at around $35) has an entire section for special occasion dresses. You’re going to sizzle in these styles – they’re famous for hugging curves.
ICYMI: Nordstrom Rack is now open in Toronto with their flagship in Bloor-Yorkville village. Who else is literally freaking out?! The off-price division of the department store will give label lovers an insane rush with unbelievable markdowns on designer clothing. While I can’t guarantee all prices will be under $150, the value you’ll be getting is insane.
You might not have been paying attention, but over the past several years, Dynamite has done a total rebranding. They used to remind me of Suzy Shier, but have since gotten into much more stylish things. There are actually so many cute AF dresses to choose from with prices starting at $39.95.
A list for affordable dresses for weddings wouldn’t be complete without Winners and Marshalls. I LOVE these stores and can almost never go inside without buying something. Check out our lists for the best Winners and Marshalls in Toronto and head straight for the “Off the Runway Racks.” Start there, and then branch out to the other dresses; you’ll likely end up buying more than one! LOL
If you haven’t shopped at Lulus yet, you’re in for a lovely surprise. The online retailer is like a more upscale and trendy Forever 21 or H&M, while still remaining hella affordable. Sale dresses are as cheap as $15, while in season dresses start around $50. They have a great mix of different styles, from simple to more extravagant and regularly have sale promotions going on as well as periods of free shipping.
