Your favorite retail shops (many go-tos, like J. Crew, have lines on the side specifically designed for brides and bridesmaids), sample sales (thanks to modern technology, you don’t even have to be there in person fighting off other brides-to-be), and resale options (because why should a dress so beautiful only be worn once?). Read on for the options that top our list.
