Where can you get a wedding dress for under 500? Right here, that’s where! We’ll tell you where to buy wedding dresses under $500 that look beautiful. We did all the digging so you don’t have to! Read on to see what made the list and join the list for the latest to your inbox.
If you’re here, you’re looking for wedding dresses under $500. If you’re wondering, where can I buy a cheap wedding dress, hang on just a sec. I don’t like to use the words cheap wedding dress because there’s nothing cheap in quality about what we found for you on this list. However, they are wildly affordable wedding dresses that you won’t believe cost under $500. I could barely believe it myself.
And if you’re looking for cheap wedding dresses that cost under 500 dollars, this probably means two things: you want to spend the money elsewhere — like an upgrade to your dinner and bar menu, an amazing band, have a little honeymoon money, etc. Or, ya know, you’re just trying living your best life and not spend a ton on a dress you’ll wear one time.
A wedding dress doesn’t need to cost upwards of $2000 to be something special. A wedding gown doesn’t need a price tag of $1500 to be beautiful. If a bride wears a dress that costs $150, she will glow with the same radiance as a bride wearing one that costs 10x more. It’s not the dress — it is the bride wearing it that makes the dress truly lovely.
The bottom line is, it doesn’t matter how much you spend. All that matters is that YOU love your dress. And how you feel when you put it on.

It is very possible to love a wedding dress and how you feel and look in it at any price. You deserve to feel beautiful in a wedding dress that costs $5000 — or $500, or less! And while it may be surprising, we did find a handful of dreamy, romantic, walk-down-the-aisle-ready wedding dresses under $500 online that are carefully crafted, delightfully embroidered, and full of lovely little things. These are the best wedding dresses under 500 dollars with sleeves without sleeves, with a flowy empire waist, lace, or tulle. This beautiful collection of affordable wedding dresses under 500 online is by designer Barzelai. Orit is amazing and her customer service is top-notch. I’d order a dress from her in a heartbeat.

These gorgeous bride-approved dresses under 500 dollars are by Barzelai.
There are few shops on Etsy with dressmakers that are passionate about crafting wedding dresses for brides on a budget without sacrificing the quality of the garment or communication with the bride-to-be.
Brides rave about working with Orit. And although many brides are hesitant at first about buying THE dress online, every review had glowing praise for their handmade dress, the quality, and craftsmanship, and most of all, the willingness of Orit to communicate and work with them one-on-one on a beautiful wedding dress that fit their budget.
Note: Not all gowns in the shop are wedding dresses under $500. There are some more luxury gowns that are higher on the price-point, but still worth a look! ;) We’ve curated this list to show you only the dresses for the bride that are under 500 dollars.
