6 Affordable Wedding Dresses & How To Style Them

Gone are the days when wedding dresses had to cost a fortune. Dozens of brands are now providing affordable alternatives to traditional styles – and whether you're after something fashion-forward or classic, there's a style out there to suit. Here are six of the best out there, styled by the SL team...

Needle & Thread have long created some of the best affordable wedding dresses, but this new tiered version is next level. Elegant, feminine and balletic, it requires very little accessorising – just a low bun and some simple earrings.

Consider this dress the perfect balance between feminine and simple. With its sleek, fuss-free fit and pretty ruffle detail it's the grown-up, classic style that will suit so many – just add serious statement accessories for a glamorous twist.

Fashion-forward brides: this one's for you. Plissé trousers and a statement crop top from Solace London had the SL fashion team swooning, with the vintage-inspired headpiece and tulle-adorned heels injecting an extra layer of drama. The best bit? The look is cool enough to wear again.

It doesn't get much more elegant than a Galvan slip. This halterneck style ticks all the right boxes – with its slinky fit, floor-skimming hem and subtle details, it's the perfect simple wedding or afterparty piece. Add killer shoes to finish the look – these designer dupes from Dune are an easy win.

Clover London is the latest wedding brand on the block. Founded by PR Ally Voss, the simple dresses with a fun twist quickly won us over – you've got to love those statement bows. Pair with a show-stopping headband for high-low balance.

ASOS may not be your first port of call for elegant bridalwear, but this vintage-inspired piece is up there with some of the best. Think Rachel Zoe, Temperley, Halston... flowing hair is all you need to complete the 70s-inspired look.
