It’s fashion Friday, folks, and we know you’re as chuffed about that as we are, because who doesn’t love fashion? And, more importantly, who doesn’t love Fridays?! You might’ve already peeped some of our fave wedding-day looks under $3000, under $1000 (bargain), some dresses with sleeves we can’t get enough of, lovely elopement looks… but today, dear readers, we’ve rounded up gorg gowns for $5000 or less.
When you’ve got a cool five grand to play with, the wedding dress world is your oyster, and while some of these pieces lean closer to the top end of the budget, you’ll also find loads of juicy pieces for less, leaving you enough change to go grab all those delicious accessories that’ll really make your look.
Amidst the choices, you’ll find a whole bunch of the designers and boutiques we adore. Think intricate, form-fitting lace from the likes of Rue De Seine and Grace Loves Lace; modern minimalism via L’eto Bridal and By Kinsman; reimagined romantic styles from Oui The Label and Karen Willis Holmes; a sweet-and-spicy party dress from Ella Moda (just to mix things up!); and ofc Bo&Luca‘s trademark bohemian vibes. Plus, more of our favies from the very best boutiques, like White Lily Couture (hello, Hera Couture), Mrs Fray (we see you over there, Prea James Bridal!) and The Bridal Atelier.
So now it’s time to press pause on life for a sec, go grab yourself a coffee (or a cocktail, you pick), then settle in to scroll through some of the looks we love love love for less than five kay.
