18 Wedding Dresses under $450

ref dress
This time last year, I was on the hunt for two white dresses for City Hall and for my wedding dinner. It was an extremely exhausting process and 15 dresses later I found the one (below, from Reformation) for my wedding dinner weeks in advance.

Finding a dress for a casual bridal situation like City Hall, on the other hand, was much more challenging. Luckily, like a true procrastinator I found this one (below, from Club Monaco) the day before.

If you’re a bride-to-be or know a bride-to-be, here are 9 budget-friendly options for a casual ceremony and 9 budget-friendly options for a formal one.

All these dresses are from Shopbop, Revolve, and Reformation because they have free shipping and great return policies.
