Nothing Fancy, Just Love Series: The Best Non-traditional Wedding Dresses

This week’s wedding planning tip? Just a friendly reminder that your dress does not need to be a princess dress that costs thousands of dollars (unless that’s totally your jam!). Remember when I talked about wedding budgets and I said to pick three things to spend the bulk of your budget on? If your dress is one of those, that’s amazing and I hope you find the dress of your dreams and dance the night away in it! For me it wasn’t one of my big budget areas, I didn’t need to have the dress appointments at bridal salons with champagne and my closest girls. (Don’t worry, I’ve found other areas to include my girls). I purchased a dress online for $86, and the more I look at it the more excited I get to wear it! Another bonus with a less expensive dress? Not worrying about it getting dirty! It’s highly unlikely you’ll wear it again and I really want you to be truly present and carefree on your wedding day, so why worry about a little mud. Your photographer will be really happy too if you’re totally open to exploring in your wedding attire.

So, I’ve done some searching for you and found some of my favourite dresses online, all stunning, non-traditional, flowy, sure to photograph beautifully, and under $200! Click on the photos to check out these amazing online boutiques.
