H&M is breaking into bridal — our dream come true. This is hot on the heels of Modcloth announcing their affordable wedding line. Designers are finally getting the message: Brides don’t want the hassle of salon fittings and prices that escalate with every added bead or tuck. We don’t need custom gowns and we won’t pay thousands of dollars for a dress, when we know we can find one we like for a few hundred. Let’s face it, a wedding dress is just a dress. Sure, one to be worn on an important day and all. But what’s vital to us is how our dress makes us look and feel. Any white dress could really be our wedding dress. For example, here are 100 white dresses that would work perfectly for a wedding.
Some brides don’t even want to wear white anymore, when pink or silver or even black are more flattering and stylish. One of these 50 colorful wedding dresses could be just the thing. The most important thing is that the dress reflect our personal style.
If your dream wedding takes place in a natural setting, includes self-written vows and a front-braid crown in your flowy hair, you’re probably looking to rock a bohemian wedding dress. Luckily, there are more options than ever. You’ll want to check out Free People and Reformation for bohemian inspo, certainly. ASOS and Modcloth are both good for affordable bridal and, yay, H&M. The H&M wedding dresses are eco-friendly and sustainable, from what they call their Conscious Exclusive Collection. Reported to be inspired by the Louvre museum in Paris, this beaded dress has a relaxed, boho silhouette and is embellished with beads that are a mix of recycled glass and rhinestones. This is just one of three dresses H&M previewed, but the full line will be revealed on April 7 and retail for $500-$650.
