Here are 11 beautiful wedding dresses for under €500

On the search for the perfect wedding dress but don’t want to stretch the purse strings? Here are 11 of the most beautiful wedding dresses for under €500 that you can buy now


There is a lot to think about when it comes to shopping for wedding dresses.

From the shape to the shade to the length – it’s not as simple as putting on a dress and running out of the shop with glee.

You have to think about the price too. We’ve all heard stories of brides who spent thousands on their dress, and while there is nothing wrong with this, many of us just can’t afford the expense (even if it is for our big day).

A fraction of the price

Luckily, the world of online shopping has come to save all brides-to-be. Over the last few years, retailers have seen the gap in the market for bridalwear which comes without the mammoth price tag. From ASOS to Monsoon, these dresses look just as good (if not better) than those priced at €1,000 and higher, plus they cater for a wide range of style preferences.

Kitri has just released its bridal collection which is perfect for those who want a more relaxed look and feel. Reformation has a range of options for the sustainable bride, while the Outnet is the best place to search out designer gowns at a fraction of the cost.

If you look hard enough, you may just find a gem that won’t break the bank. And to aid you in your search, we found 11 of the most beautiful wedding dresses for under €500 you can shop right now.
