Once one of the engagement rings you’ve probably alluded to is on your finger, shopping for one of the biggest purchases of your life looms on the horizon: the perfect wedding dress.
From tulle trains to luxurious lace, finding the best wedding dress for you is also a personal decision. With so many styles – mermaid, A-line, boho, oh my! – it’s an exciting thing to buy, but it can also be somewhat stressful.
And, while we’ve all dreamed of trying on wedding dresses in a bridal boutique, times have certainly changed as more and more retailers and companies offer some of the best wedding dresses online to choose from. Not to mention that buying online usually saves you a pretty penny and we don’t even want to get into the total cost of a wedding.
It’s time to play dress up.
Ahead, check out the top seven places we’re committed to delivering your perfect wedding dress online, which we’d lovingly say ‘yes’ to. And, if you need bridesmaid or wedding guest dresses to share with your friends (or buy for an upcoming event), we’ve got you covered.
Not to mention, we spoke to a wedding planner and the experts at The Knot and Zola to curate the only wedding registry guide you’ll ever need.

At Lulus, you can find wedding dresses for under $300 – a huge win considering all the expenses involved in planning a wedding. We love the Awaken My Love Long Sleeve Lace Maxi Dress ($89) for a soft budget option and the True Love long dress decorated with rhinestones and pearls ($259) for a delicate style that screams bridal.
For edgy looks in a range of styles, Revolve has the most perfect wedding dresses that cost well under $1,000. We can’t forget the cross back (and lace) detail of Heartloom Della Dress ($319) with the Fairy Princess look-alike representing Bronx and Banco’s Tunisian wedding dress ($690).
And, whether you want a maxi dress for a more casual wedding, your engagement shoot, or a rehearsal dinner, we’re seriously in love with the bestseller. Mid-length wedding dress Mademoiselle ($805) from Bronx and Banco too.
Known for their relatively affordable bohemian styles, BHLDN has some of the most swoon-worthy bridal designs we’ve seen. From Willowsby by Watters Whitney dress ($1,595) to Cameron dress ($1,298) from the same brand, we love the delicate details of the ruffled sleeves and drooping lace.
Plus, BHLDN offers a wonderful range of sizes, including plus sizes. If you are also more into the trend of white wedding blazers, the brand has a nice Elliatt Honeymoon Blazer and Pants Set ($218) worth considering.
Couture Candy has that glamorous factor that earned it pride of place in this edition. Graceful Da Vici Spaghetti Strap Embroidered Wedding Dress ($798) at Alyce Paris – Alyce Paris Sweetheart Neckline Embroidered Swing Dress ($490), the retailer offers a designer set with exceptional options.
Oh and can we shed some light Da Vici Bridal Embroidered Strapless Mermaid Dress ($850) slimming and sexy, plus the Elizabeth K wedding dress with stunning lace applique details on the off-the-shoulder sleeves? Yes, we love this place.
Of course, designer-ready retailer Saks Fifth Avenue has a dream selection of bridal styles to buy. Simplistic flows – like Sachin & Babi Aubrey One Shoulder Trumpet Dress ($795) – to more traditional, Bridgerton-esque numbers – like Tadashi Shoji’s off-the-shoulder tulle dress ($848) – you can find stellar flights for less than $1,000.
Plus, for timeless classics, you definitely can’t go wrong with the feminine avant-garde. Asymmetric Mac Duggal jersey dress ($358) or Markarian’s Circle floral jacquard dress with bow on the arms ($3,595), the latter being quite a splurge.
Known for its classic catalog of simplistic styles with a bohemian twist, Reformation is a great place to shop for the dress of your dreams (and other dressestoo much).
Not only are his selections enduring, but we find his Melita dress ($348), Hestia Dress ($598) and Hollyhock dress ($388) particularly breathtaking. Not to mention that simplistic styles can draw all the attention to your blooming bouquet.
ASOS is the hidden gem that offers wedding dresses. Dresses inspired by Marilyn Monroe (see the Lola satin wedding dress; $420) with a cute style of white flutter sleeves (see the Annie floral dress; $200), we so want to play dress up right now.
And, if you want to step it up a bit, we stand at the Maya wedding dress ($236.87) that is made of head-to-toe sequins. There are even more wishlisting styles to browse.
