It’s no secret that your average wedding looks very different than it did 12 months ago. Goodbye, cavernous venues, triple-digit guest-lists, and weekend-long itineraries; hello, live-streamed ceremonies, minimony and microwedding size guest lists, and lace-adorned formal face masks. Whether you’re just beginning to wedding-plan or you’ve had to re-think a ceremony planned pre-COVID, your wedding budget poses a stark contrast to the one you would have whipped up at the beginning of 2020 and so does your idea of the ideal wedding dress.

Brides are still hankering to walk down the aisle in fabulous white getups — even if it’s just in their own backyards — but are trading in floor-sweeping pricy gowns in favor of stunningly simple and cheap wedding dresses, and beyond (two-pieces, suits, and onesies are options, too). The Washington Post recently reported that bridal retailers are revamping their offerings, serving up affordable and pared-down dresses to suit the intimate mini-monies that have become more common since the onset of the pandemic.

If you find yourself among the growing number of brides in search of a dress that’s both pretty and pretty affordable to wear at your scaled-down ceremony, look no further. We rounded up the sweetest white dresses on the internet, both from the ranks of traditional bridal retailers and reader-favorite shops alike. Don’t worry, you’ll still find plenty of tulle, chiffon, and lace in the slides ahead — you just won’t have to break the bank to obtain it.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
