Let’s be real: Only celebrities and rich people can afford an extravagant wedding…and the myriad of designer outfits that go along with it. But the perfect wedding outfit doesn’t always have to come from a traditional wedding designer like Vera Wang or Monique Lhuillier.

In fact, in recent years, many brides are opting for smaller-scale weddings and forgoing huge fairy tale princess gowns in lieu of modern and fashion-forward trends like slinkier fits, short dresses and even pant/suits (but if princess gowns are your thing, that’s cool too—we’ve got more options for you here).

Picking the perfect outfit shouldn’t just be about tradition—it should be about personal style. It’s 2019! You do you, not what your mother/mother-in-law wants.  If you’ve decided to go for something a little less conventional for your big day, then you’ve definitely come to the right place because we’ve scoured the internet to find some of the most stylish yet affordable options.

Scroll through for some fashion-forward bridal looks that aren’t cookie-cutter AND won’t break your bank account.
