You have probably been dreaming of your wedding day since the very first moment you could string the words “wedding” and “fairy-tale” together. You have had dreams of the venue, the cake, the decor, the horse-drawn carriage, the charming and handsome groom and, of course, the wedding dress. Even if you have not dreamt of the other stuff, we bet our bottom dollar you have dreamt of your perfect wedding dress: that jaw-dropping white ball gown with a train so long it glides behind you as you walk towards your soon-to-be husband. Yeah, we know!
Unfortunately, weddings are pretty expensive, and with economic distress all over the country, fewer women feel they can shell out thousands of dollars on their wedding gown. So does that mean you have to bid adieu to the perfect wedding dress of your dreams? Not yet. At Coco Melody, you can find many affordable yet gorgeous, swoon-worthy dresses that you will be begging to say “I Do” in. Today, we have rounded up seven of our favorites that you can get under $500, because wedding dresses don’t have to cost a fortune!
1. Style #LD5830 – $399.00
At $399, this two-tone A-line wedding dress from Lily White is a steal. This dress comes in the classic shade of ivory set off by fine silver accents. It also features beautiful floral appliqués, a glamorous off-the-shoulder neckline and a fairytale-like sweep-brush train that makes this dress look a lot more expensive than it is.

This is yet another two-tone A-line wedding dress that has a $399 price tag.

5. Style #LD5237 – $399.00
Just because it is the most affordable of the lot does not mean that this mermaid wedding dress from LB Studio is anything cheap. With layers of lace, an elegant bateau neckline, a chic open back, and minimal embellishments, this sleeveless dress is for a modern bride who wants to keep her bridal look simple and graceful.
6. Style #LD4481 – $499
Modern and sleek, this princess wedding dress from Lily White is the one to go for if you want to ball on a budget.
