plus size scalloped dress on offbeat bride

[related-post]For those of you who are leaning towards the vintage-y/classic end of the wedding aesthetics spectrum (as opposed to the rainbow carnival freakout or zombie-chic), I've found some crazy gorgeous dresses for dirt cheap. Some of this stuff reminds me of BHLDN's styling, but without the $128 buckets and other overpriced pomp. These dresses are like vintage-tinged fever dreams that I want to crawl into and pretend I'm more understated and chic than I actually am. (We all know what end of the spectrum I'M on.)

And the prices? HOLY SHIT. Cute vintage-styled dresses under $300? And sweet-ass accessories like veils and headpieces under $50. Aww, yeah. Let's take a look:

Comments on How did I just discover these vintage-y wedding dresses under $200!?

  1. Love sleeves!! I’m sewing my own dress because I just couldn’t find anything with sleeves and a collar like I had in mind. If this had been out a few months ago I might have gone ahead and bought from them. I am enjoying sewing my own though.

  2. I might just have to buy one of those dresses for when I feel like having an elegant tea party. Or something. Cause seriously, wow.

  3. Can I just add how much I love that they tell you the height of the model, or length of the dress! As someone who is 5’9 and looong waisted a lot of dresses end up too short on me. Knowing the height of the model is super helpful!!!

    • I was just thinking the same thing. As a tall lady I often find dresses way to short.

  4. Ooh, pretty dresses! But am I the only one thinking these dresses wouldn’t fit anyone bigger than an A-cup? Nothing wrong with a tiny chest, but there’s no room for the ladies here…

    • I just bought my dress size 6 I’m a B cup fits great and I would even say I there was room for more up top.

  5. Many of those dresses are available from Unique Vintage (for less, I believe) and several of them are from the Nataya collection (look it up, you will drool). My friend got married in the “Claire” dress (it was BEAUTIFUL) but she paid about $150 for it a couple of years ago. That dress was also featured in black as a bridesmaid dress on the David Tutera wedding show. I think I’ve been looking at wedding dresses too long…

  6. Gorgeous…wishing I could have discovered them last year for my wedding! Could have gotten exactly want I wanted (Nadine dress) AND saved money. Where’s the nearest bridge? just kidding…

  7. My inner monologue while flipping through their bridal lookbook “oh my god, I have to pin that. (next page). Oh my god, I have to pin that. (next page). Oh my god I have to pin THAT.” This is amahzing, so grateful you posted this! It’s tougher than you’d think to find vintage inspired awesomeness.

  8. I am totally in love with this website. Whilst I already got my gown from a friend. I do plan on just having a plain old dinner after the reception. I would totally rock one of these dresses just to extend out feeling like a beautiful vintage rock star for a little longer.

  9. Figures. Why didn’t they release their stuff 5 months ago? When I was actually looking for my dress? (Instead of now, 4 weeks after the wedding?…) – Oh well, I still loved my dress! I’ll totally point any friends in their direction though! Such cute stuff!!

  10. I saw the site ad on here and I went right away I found the Claire one so beautiful. pretty much all the things i wanted in a dress, taupe-ish color, vintage feel, ankle length, affordable and SLEEVES!!! allot ppl don’t get how strongly i feel about bridal sleeves but i always felt that my dress should have em i so glad other ladies know how great sleeves are! all the other dresses are great as well but this one really caught my eye!! RUCHE Yea!!! now i just gotta wait for restock! 😀

    • You don’t have to wait for re-stock, the Claire dress is just the Nataya Ballerina dress – it comes in black, pink and ivory. Google and you’ll find other places to buy it for less than $400.
