One of the biggest choices you’ll make for your wedding is your wedding gown. Your wedding gown is a highly personal detail that will set the mood for the day, and will say much about who you are and what you like.
But let’s face it, wedding gowns can be so expensive! And if you’re reading this and feeling overwhelmed by the $28,500 average wedding cost, try tacking on $5,000 for a Vera Wang wedding gown or $10,000 for a Monique Lhuillier! Now, you’re either serving hotdogs and sheet cake at your wedding, or your budget just went through the roof.
1) A Touch of Lace
There’s just enough lace on this skirt to evoke nature in a delicate way. Think of those first, fresh wildflower blooms in the spring. The sweetheart neckline is sweetly romantic, while the beaded belt gives a touch of glamour.
2) Over the Moon for Lace
Nothing says quaint, rustic charm like a perfectly-fitted lace wedding gown with a trumpet skirt. The wide lace straps will give you extra support and coverage, as well as just a bit of extra warmth on cool mountain evenings.
3) Ethereal Organza
Light and airy like a mountain breeze, this alluring gown has a “belt” of floral lace that hints at your love of nature while still being sweet and romantic.
4) Bold Appliqué
You’ll be right on trend with this bold appliqué flower and edgy lace that is modern enough for the fashion forward mountain bride, but with just enough outdoorsy whimsy to be perfect for an outdoor fete.
5) Ruffles and Such
Ruffles are perfect for nature-loving mountain brides. They whisper of feathers found in the woods. This heavenly gown will make you feel like your floating on a cloud, while the lace bodice, satin belt, and flower appliqué lend the right amount of rustic elegance.
6) Lighter Than Air
This gorgeous A-line is equally at home in the ballroom and in the barn. The soft, ethereal skirt takes center stage, and wows guests with it’s lightness. The sweet heart neckline and beaded belt are classic additions that don’t compete with this lighter-than-air full skirt and train.
7) Stunning Pleating
Crisscrossed pleats piled on tiers on top, combined with unstructured ruffles on the skirt add unique texture that both you and your guests will love. One shoulder strap with organza flower appliqué completes the look.
Now that you’ve saved a ton of money on a gorgeous, high-quality wedding gown you can afford, you have money for a great photographer (which I recommend) a wedding planner (which many destination mountain brides who have been published on these pages recommend) or gorgeous floral design, a delicious cake, or even an extended honeymoon. Whatever your priorities are, you can now afford more.
