Weekly Winter Wedding Dresses on a Budget: 10 More Gorgeous Dresses Under $1,500


It’s that time of the week again where I show you all of the amazing affordable wedding dresses I found that would be perfect for your fall or winter wedding. It again brings up the question of what exactly makes a dress ‘wintry’. I have said before that I think intricate romantic lace, jeweled embellishments and golden hues definitely bring out the holiday season that is associated with winter. I would also like to say that whatever dress you feel great in and want to wear will be perfect for whatever season you want to get married in. If you see one of these dresses and love them, but are getting married in spring or summer then by all means wear the dress and rock it! I think that it is easy to make the dress you love fit in with your wedding. For example pairing a more summery dress with a jeweled sash would make it more appropriate for winter, and pairing a wintry dress with bright gorgeous florals would evoke a spring and summer feeling.

The dress featured above is the Violet dress by Grace Loves Lace. I love the bohemian feeling of this dress along with the more romantic lace top and golden hued sash. The gorgeous tulle skirt gives this dress an elegant and ethereal appearance  that would make it a perfect choice for a fall wedding.
