I thought I’d bring a little feature from one of the other sites I edit, ShinyStyle, over here to Bridalwave – the Bargain Pick of the Week. Unlike the Ebay Bargain of the Week, these dresses will be brand new from a regular retailer. I’ll try to keep them under $1,000 because as well all know when it comes to wedding gowns, that qualifies as a bargain.
For our first Bargain Dress of the Week, I give you the J. Crew silk tricotine goddes long dress for a whopping full price of $325. It’s not even on sale! And it’s made of silk, when there are a *lot* of dresses over $1,000 out there posing as silk when they are not. Not, not, not.
This gown is fully lined and the skirt has that extra fabric look that is so romantic and graceful. I really can’t see anywhere they really skimped except possibly the straps, but if you’re looking for spaghetti straps one is the same as the next.
If you’re looking for a simple, elegant gown as so many brides are, then J. Crew has a whole selection fo these dresses for under $500 at their everyday prices. I may just have to mine their site again for another Bargain Dress of the Week!
