10 online wedding dresses if you're so over expensive boutiques

The Internet isn't the first place I would think to buy a wedding dress. If I were to do it all again today, I'd sign up for all  of the champagne-sipping, white dress-twirling bridal boutique appointments. That is, until I saw the prices. Although you can definitely find affordable boutiques, they are hard to spot. And if you've been through them all and still can't find your dress, you might be a little desperate right now. 

But, don't be dismayed! You don't have to turn to the big box stores. You can find a gorgeous, one of a kind and affordable dress all online. 

If buying a wedding dress online freaks you out a little, remember that the Internet is not what it was. It's becoming an increasingly safe place to purchase with return policies, customer reviews, and photos galore on trusted platforms. In many cases, if you don't like the dress, you can return it or have the seamstress alter it. With verified customer reviews, you also know that the company isn't going to take advantage of you on your big day. 

All of these dresses are under $500 (except for one or two!) so you can comfortably stay in budget and maybe splurge on getting a few more wedding day cards

So, if you're over the expensive boutiques but still want a one-of-a-kind stunner, here are ten gorgeous dresses for you:

Ok, yes, this dress is from Amazon. But hear me out - it's not only remarkably affordable, you can also return it if you hate it. This dress in particular received several glowing reviews and customer photos so you can see how it fit on other brides, as well.
