Wedding attire is one category that can quickly spiral out of control money-wise. You want to look beautiful, you want to feel beautiful, and you want to photograph beautifully. All of the above are totally understandable and, well, perfectly normal. You’re the bride – of course you want to shine.
But beware the bridal accessory money pit. Unless you’re a regular on the high-society cocktail circuit or own season tickets to the opera – you do not need to be drippin’ in diamonds (ten points if you get that reference!). What’s a budget bride to do? Look for quality knock-offs of your preferred bling. There are lots of awesome websites out there that cater to these looks and make some really excellent pieces in a variety of price points.
Don’t have time to mine through countless websites? KMT has pulled together some great options from a variety of budget companies. Check ‘em out:
