If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you said “yes” to the person of your dreams, and you’re in the midst of planning your big day. If that’s the case, congratulations! You deserve to enjoy the experience of organizing your wedding just as you’ve always dreamed. And yes, that includes the dress! It’s the one thing that many of us fantasized about as children and now it’s actually time to bring that fantasy to life!
Dress shopping can be a bit overwhelming. We’re exposed to things like Pinterest, which is filled with high-end gowns, and shows like Say Yes to The Dress that glorify unrealistic budgets.
Luckily, I have good news for you! You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful gown. In fact, the average bride only spends about $1200 on a wedding dress. You just have to do your research and find the correct bridal salon or designer that suits your budget. I know it can be difficult to find an affordable, yet beautiful dress, and that’s why I’m bringing you 18 stunning bridal gowns that you can get for under just $1,500!

Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
