Affordable Wedding Dresses Under $1,000


You deserve to feel beautiful on your wedding day! Although TV shows like TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” often show brides spending $5,000 or more on a gown, you can breathe a sigh of relief that it’s possible to find affordable wedding dresses under $1,000.

Affordable Wedding Dresses under $1,000

Yes! Yet a budget-conscious bride doesn’t need to give up style. Moonlight Bridal has been a prestigious name in the bridal industry for over 30 years. We have three designer collections and our “Tango” line offers many wedding dresses under $1,000.

See a few of our newest Tango favorites below. One of our new mermaid gowns features a modern silhouette and high neckline adorned with beaded appliques. Is Boho-chic more your style? We’ve got you covered--literally! You might swoon over our new romantic A-line dress with flirty spaghetti straps, lace insets, and soft chiffon. Several of our affordable bridal gowns feature a hot trend for 2018: micro straps. It’s a sexy twist on a traditional corset style; the thin micro straps add a flirtatious touch. These are only a few options under $1,000.  

How can we offer high-quality designs on a budget?

Chiffon, lace appliques, Mikado and tulle are a few of the beautiful and airy fabrics we use that don’t break the bank (higher-cost accents such as re-embroidered lace appliques, longer trains, and, hand beaded details featured in our Collection and Couture lines). But we don’t sacrifice quality. Each gown in our Tango line is given the same design and construction attention as our higher-end lines. The result? Beautiful and affordable wedding dresses that fit a range of wedding styles: informal, formal, modest, romantic, rustic, Boho or retro.

If you’re looking for a reception wedding dress, Moonlight Bridal’s Tango line is a budget-friendly option for that too. A tea-length dress is popular because it’s fun, flirty and easy to dance in. We offer tea-length dresses with several sleeve styles to fit any reception look: long, short, illusion, lace, spaghetti and strapless. But if you prefer an reception dress that’s sexy, sophisticated or casual, we have those too. Browse our entire Tango collection to see our affordable wedding dresses for under $1,000.

Affordable Wedding Ideas

There’s no need to go into debt. Here are a few affordable wedding ideas that can help you plan your dream day on a budget:

  • Venue: Wedding site fees can be expensive. If you can consider a small guest list, many gorgeous venues might offer a great “elopement package” deal. Courthouses, hotels, restaurants and wineries, for example. They may include or offer add-ons such as an officiant, photographer, custom bridal bouquet and boutonniere. Public beaches and parks are also breathtaking locations for a simple ceremony. Check the city’s website for permit fees and restrictions.

  • Food & Drinks: Perhaps a restaurant-catered reception is right for you. They’ll even take care of food delivery and set-up. Italian, Greek, Mexican or BBQ restaurants are a few delicious and affordable options. Keep in mind, sometimes a backyard wedding isn’t cheap because you’ll need to rent tables, chairs, utensils (and a house with only one or two restrooms may not be enough for your number of guests). Look into those costs, but also consider a low-cost venue such as your church or temple reception hall if there are plenty of chairs, tables and restrooms.

Providing your own alcohol can be a significant savings, wherever you decide to hold your reception. Beer and wine are fine and cost less than hard alcohol.

  • Invitations & Decor: Most guests throw out invitations. If your budget is tight, printable DIY wedding invitations may be all you need. Online Save-The-Dates and RSVPs may be a cost-saving option too.

Wedding decorations can cost a lot. You may want to skip decorating the ceremony site and focus on the reception site. If the reception is held at a nice restaurant, you may not need any decor or only a few flower centerpieces. Or perhaps the restaurant can provide candles at no charge. Check out Pinterest DIY wedding decor for other inexpensive ideas.

As a couple, talk about what’s most important to you. Prioritize those. You don’t need a big budget to create a beautiful but affordable wedding--just a little research and creativity!

Fashion they say is synonymous with passion – being ardent about making oneself better, not just for oneself but for society in general.
