With fast fashion stores like H&M and Asos entering the bridal market and high-end designers creating affordable lines for David’s Bridal and BHLDN, finding a beautiful dress for under $500 is no longer out of the question. Online shopping has become incredibly popular, so that is definitely the place to look for deals. A good rule of thumb for finding good sales is to shop at the end of each season for that season’s items. For instance, look for wedding dresses with sleeves and faux fur wraps at the end of February, right before retailers introduce spring collections. Additionally, if you find something you really love, copy the details of that item and do a general google search. That way, you can see what all of the retailers are charging for that item and find the best deal.
