Wedding Dresses Under $600

August 13, 2013


I haven’t written this type of post in awhile, so it was fun to take a look and see what types of wedding dresses I could find under a certain price point. A quick search resulted in several gorgeous options, all of which are $600 or under! I like hat you can easily find a variety of lengths and necklines, and even some with lace. The back of the BHLDN gown is such a stunner! And the bottom center dress from DressFirst is equal parts simple and elegant. They also have a great selection of wedding party dresses!

How cute are these chalkboard style pennant banners?  The adorable team at is offering them up as a free download on their blog.  Just print, punch holes where they are marked for you on the template, and string them on some ribbon or twine!  Once they offered up the download they realized that from the words “Just Married” you can also spell out “Mr. & Mrs” so they included an ampersand as well – love it.
