Luckily, you don't have to spend a fortune to get a beautiful gown. There are so many gorgeous dresses out there that cost less than $1,000, some are far less. And odds are, most people won't even know or care that you're not wearing Vera Wang or Lazaro. All your guests are going to be focused on is how pretty you look. A more expensive dress doesn't mean that isn't a more gorgeous dress. You can look just as beautiful in something that's a fraction of the cost!
Got your heart set on a designer dress that you can't afford? Take a look at some of these. It proves that you can find a similar dress for far less. All you've got to do is look around and you'll find something you love that's within your budget. And, honestly, I like some of the cheaper dresses more. Go figure!
