Destination Wedding Dresses for Under $500
One of the SmartBride team members is off to St. Maarten this week. Am I jealous? Maybe just a tad.
I just checked the weather, and it’s a balmy 35 degrees with humidity (almost 80 for those of you south of the border). Since I can’t go, I thought I’d pull together some destination wedding dresses, perfect for a sunny beach wedding. I know, it’s not the same as going down to balmy St. Maarten, but thinking about wearing these light and breezy dresses puts me in a beach state of mind.
AND, did I mention this one small detail? Every single one of these dress is $300 or less? Every. Single. One. That's AMAZING!
Be a sun goddess with this size 6 J. Crew Goddess wedding dress. Originally $325, never worn and now $200.
Having a casual beach wedding and want to be able to walk in the water without lifting your skirts? This size 6 Alfred Angelo 1235 wedding dress is the perfect choice. Originally $440, this new with tags dress is now just $200.
Reminiscent of J.Lo’s Golden Globe’s dress, this size 8 Alfred Angelo 2106 wedding dress is the perfect mix of style and movement for a destination wedding. Originally $770, this boutique sample is now just $221.
Chiffon layers give this dress an elegant feel, but the overall look is still casual enough for a beach wedding. Even better, this size 10 Mon Cheri 16112 is usually $899 but is being sold for $275 at an upcoming charity sample sale.
Jenny Yoo’s designs are simple but stunning and so many of them are perfect for destination weddings. Our choice is this size 12 Jenny Yoo Sasha wedding dress made of silk chiffon. Originally $925, this discontinued boutique sample is now $300.
