Planning a summer wedding outdoors? Or, maybe you're planning a destination wedding somewhere warm and tropical; on the sand and overlooking the ocean? If so, you definitely want to consider wearing a chiffon wedding gown if you haven't already. The light, soft chiffon material is ideal for the bride who does not want to feel weighed down by a fussy skirt as she walks down the aisle toward her husband-to-be. Chiffon wedding gowns look romantic and effortless, and chiffon is the perfect material for delicately catching a light ocean breeze during your ceremony on the beach.
Nailing down the material of your dress is just one of several characteristics to consider when deciding on the dress you will be wearing on one of the happiest days of your life. Another is price. When you watch a wedding show like "Say Yes to the Dress" on TLC (one of my favorite TV shows), the show's bridal consultants have you feeling like your options for finding a beautiful wedding dress are extremely limited unless you are willing to pay over $5,000. Whenever a bride-to-be comes into the NYC bridal boutique with a $1,500 budget, everyone gets flustered and discouraged. Outside of well-known bridal boutiques, however, there are plenty of affordable, beautiful chiffon wedding gown options for you to consider. You can still look like the drop-dead gorgeous bride you always dreamed of being, but you won't have to pay as much. By shopping smart and saving money, you get to enjoy putting the saved money toward something else like the honeymoon, a new house, or a new baby!
Here is a gallery of distinctly beautiful chiffon wedding gowns that are all under the $700 mark, starting at $117.90 (40% off). The gowns are arranged from least to most expensive (left to right).
