If you're an average bride, you're going to be spending $26,989 on your wedding … which means you're probably looking to pinch a few pennies wherever possible. You wouldn't think that your wedding dress would be an area where you'd be willing to save some, but considering all the beautiful, super-special dresses that ring in under $500, you just might.
The best part isn't even the price tag, but rather the unconventional feel — they're definitely not your average cake-topper gowns.

Check out these 10 dresses that break the mold (and not your budget!).
