Want a wedding dress for under $1000? Step this way...

A wedding dress under $1000 isn’t just some whispered about myth, it's out there – and it can be yours.
And no, it doesn't mean you have to engage in a vicious tug-of-war with another budget-bride over that on-sale designer gown. It just means knowing what you want and where you need to start looking. This is the part where, normally, we’d hammer home the importance of doing your research but we’ve already done the leg work for you. 

We’ve trawled the streets of Melbourne and Sydney, stores around Australia and international boutiques to find you beautiful gowns under $1000 – and we didn’t just find a few. We unearthed 12 dresses that won’t break the bank, and are just as stunning as dresses that have a price tag with a few more zeroes.
