When I got married (and it wasn’t even that long ago, you guys), wedding dresses weren’t quite as plentiful online as they are today. I mean, Etsy alone has hundreds of wedding dresses under 500 dollars with reviews from real brides, stunning photo galleries, and the ability to contact the designer directly right at your fingertips. Now you can shop for your wedding dress under $500 (or even less, which you’ll find here, too) in your favorite pair of pj pants (I steal Andrew’s because they’re the comfiest) and a mug of your favorite coffee with slipper socks on. It’s wayyyy too cold outside to want to go shopping, so kick it with us instead in the cozy indoors!
Today we’re sharing our top picks for wedding dresses under 500 dollars to prove there are SO MANY beautiful, affordable choices out there. These Etsy wedding dresses are all beautifully handmade and custom-made when you order. Read on to find out which wedding dresses made our list!
