Promising review: "Love, Love, Love! I purchased this dress without ever trying it on. I am 5'7" and didn't have to have it altered at all — in fact, I took it to a tailor and was told it was PERFECT! I felt so pretty. It is truly a beautiful dress. The dress is 'ivory' but looked white, which is what I was hoping for." —Ashley711

Get it from David's Bridal or Amazon for $599 (available in sizes 16-26 and two colors).

2. A sparkly 1920s-inspired dress worthy of the most stylish flapper. It's covered in faux-pearls and has a dramatic back cowl.

Promising review: "I was looking for a lowkey, non-poofy wedding dress, and this dress made me feel so bridal and yet so me. I'm tall and the length is just right, and there is an adorable baby-train that, again, is very low-maintenance. This dress doesn't provide any shaping, which I think worked out okay for me because I am fairly curvy and will require little to no alterations. Overall, I love the quality and how unique this dress is. I can't wait to wear it on my big day!" —MOuais1017

Get it from ModCloth or Jet for $300 (available in sizes XXS-XXL).

3. A crepe halter gown to tie the ~knot~ in. Pair with an updo to show off the bow in the back!

5. A backless lace gown with an incredibly long train to complete a fairy tale wedding.

Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about this dress. I fell in love with it online before I went into the shop, and all the other dresses didn't stand a chance against this dress. The material is great quality; thick and very stretchy. You will not be uncomfortable in this dress. It is very long, as you can see in the photos. It makes for a very pretty train, but my seamstress will have to take it in." —Anonymous

Get it from BHLDN for $900 (available in sizes 0-14).

Promising review: "Honestly, it looks better in person than online. I wore this dress as my wedding dress. I love the simplicity and the elegance of this dress. It runs slightly large around the bust area, but if you have big breasts, it's perfect. If you are a short girl it might run too long for you, I am 5'7" and it was a perfect length." —Beautiful

Get it from Macy's for $379 (available in sizes 4-14).

10. A cowl-neck maxi dress (made of 100% silk!) for the free-spirited bride who'd rather wear sandals and her hair down.

12. A silver V-neck tulle dress covered in floral applique to make you feel like the belle of the ball (I mean, a wedding is kind of like a ball thrown in your honor).

amazon.com

Promising review: "If I could give this dress 10 stars I would! To say I was completely blown away is an understatement. This is my best bargain find to date! The quality is incredible, the fit is true to size (I’m a 6 and ordered a 6), and I received compliments on this dress all night long. I felt amazing and like I was wearing a much more expensive designer gown. I did, however, cut the fabric out in between my boobs, which made a huge difference. If you are hesitant—don’t be! This is truly a hidden gem that made me feel like the belle of the ball! Can’t wait to wear this dress again!" —Victoria K

Get it from Amazon for $66.99 (available in sizes 2-16 and eight colors).

13. A simple yet stunning wedding dress with a ruched bodice perfect for a beach wedding or garden soiree.

14. A strapless sweetheart number (accented with a sparkly bridal belt) that looks like a million bucks but is actually super affordable.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I can honestly say that this dress was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! No one could ever guess how much I paid for the dress. If you do buy this dress, it's best to get it in your own custom size, especially if you are plus-size like me! I can not wait to walk down the aisle in this $70 dress looking like a million bucks! Buy this dress! You won't regret it!" —Stephanie D

Promising review: "I tried this on at BHLDN with eight other dresses. This was the last dress I tried on. As soon as I stepped out, my mother, sisters, soon-to-be mother- and sister-in-law instantly teared up. The bead work is so detailed and delicate. Strangers were commenting on how gorgeous the dress was. It is worth trying on. It looks so much better in person." —Anonymous

I couldn't be happier with my decision!" —Ivettej7

macys.com

Promising review: "I'm in my 50s and have a few curves. I ordered this dress online in my size for my wedding. I was very nervous, but it fit beautifully! The material is stretchy and more like a polyester with lots of ruching on the side, but it was extremely elegant and well-made. The brooch and side slit are nicely done. I'm fairly tall and with heels, it was long on me. I was comfortable and 100% satisfied with this dress!" —50plusBride

24. An opulent icy-blue gown so you can look like a real-life Elsa from Frozen — and have something blue for your wedding!

davidsbridal.com

Promising review: "I tried on the dress at my appointment and immediately fell in love. The light blue color under the lace is much paler in person than it is in the picture, but it was stunning. The color looks very good with pale complexions like mine. The detail is absolutely gorgeous on the lace. If you are looking for a slightly non-traditional dress that is romantic, this is a great option. I said yes to this dress!" —FutureMrsG

modcloth.com

Promising review: "For this cost, it's extremely well-made, comfortable, and beautiful. I felt like the perfect blend of 1950s cupcake and princess during my wedding, and it held up to aggressive cake eating like a champ (that champagne-gold coloring does wonders if you're a messy eater)." —piminuse

Get it from ModCloth for $175 (available in sizes 2-26 and three colors).

27. A lacey mermaid gown with a cut-out in the back that'll make for fantastic bridal photos.

Promising review: "For its price, this dress exceeded my expectations! I've searched for wedding dresses at local bridal stores, and I just couldn't find one I loved. I wasn't willing to spend thousands of dollars on a dress either (just not practical to me). I was able to find this lovely dress on Amazon at such a low price and with great quality — I am indeed impressed. I could not be more satisfied with this purchase!" —quix
