Under-$1K Wedding Dresses That Don’t Look Cheap

It's your big day, but you don't need to spend big to enjoy it. A sophisticated look isn't just for brides with major bucks in the bank. We budgeted ourselves $1,000 and turned up dozens of bridal options we'd happily recite vows in; the cheapest sets us back just $40. 

These aren't strictly knee-length, City Hall-appropriate numbers, either. (Though we have plenty of those, too.) In addition to a selection of sweet LWDs, you can shop tons of floor-grazing frocks that will leave you looking and feeling like the belle of the ball. Here's to you and your boo putting those precious pennies to better use — you know, like planning the ultimate getaway or even (gasp!) buying a house.
