High Street wedding dresses that will look flawless on but won't cost an arm and a leg...

Did you know you can now buy affordable weddings dresses that still look an absolute dream, look expensive and will flatter you?? I think if you ask opinions about high street wedding dresses the general stereotype is that it will feel cheap, look cheap or not be as good a designed dress or one from a dress shop. However in the last couple of years high street brands have really upped their weddings dress game. Including ASOS! I think high street weddings dresses have even more grounds for perfection because of the pandemic. As weddings over the last year have been a bit uncertain, high street dresses have had good appeal for those having smaller and budget friendly weddings.

High street weddings dresses in my opinion really go to show how weddings can be done on a more affordable level. But without having to compromise on quality. For example Hattie Bourn wore a ASOS beauty for her evening dress. This gorgeous open back sequin number was so gorgeous and looked a million dollars on her. But it goes to show how you can get your day or evening dress for under £500. Even under £200! So if you are planning a wedding on a budget, or want multiple dresses without breaking the bank here are some gorgeous options for high street wedding dresses!

Pretty Lavish Alexis Batwing Dress – £130.00*

I am super obsessed with this dress. It is a bit like Hattie’s dress in the Instagram video I tagged of her evening dress however this is slightly more fitted. I am gutted its out of stock but I wanted to link it for people to keep an eye on incase they restock as it’s bloody gorgeous!

Pretty Lavish Amelia Maxi Dress – £85.00*

My favourite type of wedding dresses are the simple ones. This is stunning, I love how it is fitted on the top yet has the mermaid tail so it is slightly less fitted at the bottom! And very affordable!

Chi Chi London on Selfridges Sleeveless Embellished-Waist Stretch-Crepe Wedding Dress – £180.00*

This wedding dress is timeless meets boho. The crepe panels that allow the dress to be less fitted add that boho effect however from the front the detailed waist band is very timeless. Add a flower crown or pearl headband and you will have the perfect modern twist on a 1920s wedding dress!

Coast Long Sleeve Maxi Dress with Trail – £149.25 (on sale)*

This coast dress caught my eye because it was more ivory rather than white, and I am a sucker for a long sleeve. As we are going into autumn soon this would be a great transition wedding dress!

Chi Chi London Bridal Wedding Dress with Cowl Neck Design in White – £98.00

Cowl Neck designs are gorgeous because it means you don’t need any heavy jewellery or accessorise the outfit. The design really speaks for itself and its a classic dress design. I think the satin finish will be really flattering too!

Karen Millen Italian Cool Handle Cupro Strappy Back Dress – £84.50 (on sale)*

I wanted to leave this one in the post for those who are having a much more casual and relaxed wedding. For those who don’t want anything fancy but want a nice white dress for the occasion. Perfect for those having a relaxed wedding abroad, or for those having a small intimate affair. The detail on the side add to the casual affair of the dress but for some this will be the perfect one.

Karen Millen Abstract Animal Jacquard Woven Maxi Dress – £149.25 (on sale)*

How cool is this dress? The design and pattern is so different to any wedding dress and is perfect for those wanting a bold dress that is a bit different. However I also think it is so elegant. Still sophisticated and classy and the tea cut of the dress coined with the lifted skirt makes it flawless.

ASOS EDITION Cari satin wrap wedding dress with kimono sleeve – £135.00*

This is also similar to Hattie’s however without the sequins. So if you wanted an evening dress that had glamour but without the sequins then this is a good option.

ASOS EDITION Samantha beaded wedding dress with drape sleeves – £195.00*

All the glitz and glam with this dress! What caught my eye on this dress (other than the sequins) was the sleeves. Very Greek goddess inspired with the draping fabric but it is a gorgeous dress.

John Lewis Adrianna Papell Crepe Taffeta Bow Off Shoulder Gown, Ivory – £255.00*

Finally, this dress from John Lewis has an off the shoulder design with a panelled back that gives volume and effect. I think it is everything and more for someone wanting a satin and minimal finish but still wanting a breathtaking detail.
