Buy it For a Bargain - Rivini

Martinique by Rivini
Reddit user /u/Handbanana06 contacted me to help find the above dress that had been leading her in circles jumping from blog to blog, only giving her the photo credit. Well, I managed to track down the designer and with a price range of $4,500-$6,000 (more if you don't want the bodice to be see-through) it's on the higher end of the "mid-priced" bridal gown spectrum. I managed to find the designer via an article from The Knot Wedding Magazine.

The Runway Look

Here are some low-cost alternatives to the $4,500+ dress problem. All of the dresses pictured are under $600, and there are a couple more if you visit us on Pinterest.

All of these dresses can have a lace topper and an additional petticoat added to complete the look, or you can wear them as they are. My favorites are the Sugar Coat dress and the dress from Alfred Sung.
