From edgy to ethereal to ridiculously pretty, this month’s affordable wedding dress lineup is a bit of a doozy. On-trend culottes and jumpsuits have made it into the mix with embellished backless beauties bound to delight the more classic at heart. Feeling pretty smug as we prove once again that you don’t have to spend a million bucks to look it! (Prices in Australian dollars).
Cut from floaty off-white tulle, this backless gown by Needle & Thread is adorned with hundreds of shimmering sequins, beads and crystals in pretty shades of blush, pastel-yellow and gray. A little bohemian, a little ethereal, a lot of gorgeous.
