These cheap plus size wedding dresses will make it easy to stay on a wedding budget. The highest price point is $300 while some ring in under $100.
To find a quality gown, we recommend sticking to the tried and true plus size stores. While there are a range of online stores that promise cheap gowns, we’re skeptical of companies that don’t use plus size models. It is impossible to see how a dress will fit on a size 0 figure. Also, be ware of shipping and return policies for direct from China fashion.
Tried and true Kiyonna, Eloquii and Universal Standard all offer wedding dresses. Look for sales and sign up for Ebates to get a bargain. David’s Bridal also has an excellent selection of dresses in extended sizes. And last but not least, Rent the Runway has some ultra stylish options that work for a wedding ceremony, rehearsal dinner or engagement photos. At well under $100 a pop, you can have a different dress for every wedding event without breaking the bank!
To flatter your best features, these dresses span are knee, tea and floor length as well as feature strapless, off the shoulder and sleeved options. There is even a dress with a cape, because why not. A lace bolero jacket or shawl can be added to a strapless dress for church-appropriate coverage.
