When it was announced back in November 2015 that ASOS was launching an affordable bridal range, everyone was excited. It didn’t matter if you were a bride-to-be, if you had just gotten engaged, or if you weren’t even in a relationship. No matter what ASOS does, it’s always done well, and at an affordable price point, too. We saw some preview photos of the bridal range, but now you can get your hands on the collection.
The ASOS bridal collection is trendy and budget-friendly, just like the rest of the clothes on the website. ASOS design director Vanessa Spence explained to Vogue UK that no wedding dress would be over the £400 mark (that works out to about $565). However, the dresses still have gorgeous details. There’s embellishment that has been applied by hand in India, lace, rhinestones, and faux pearls.
If you are a more of a minimalist bride, there are looks for you too. If you want to wear a crop top to your wedding, ASOS has you covered. If you want a classic dress that will never look dated in photos, the collection has options for you too. There are also shorter options for those brides who aren’t as traditional or want to change into something less restrictive after the ceremony.
Check out some of the gowns for the ASOS bridal collection:
This dress has a simple silhouette but it’s still quite dramatic. The floral and rhinestone clusters make it an eye-catching piece. The back is just as pretty as the front thanks to the crisscross straps.
No one can forget Lupita Nyong’o’s pearl-encrusted dress at the 2015 Oscars. This maxi dress is the toned down bridal version of it. The crop top bodice features faux pearls and rhinestone, and the sheer waist panel shows a bit of skin but in a more subtle way than most of your crop tops.
If you’re more of a minimalist bride, this is the dress for you. It’s a classic, and the deep plunge adds a bit of sexiness along with the open back.
This dress looks way more expensive than it actually is. Mind you, that is something that could be said about the majority of the pieces in the range. We see a lot of long-sleeved dresses and strapless ones but this embellished gown will make you consider flutter sleeves.
Are you swooning yet? If you’re a bride, you’re going to be faced with the tough decision of narrowing it down between one (or two) dresses. If you’re not engaged, you are going to be wishing you were. However, you should also remember that ASOS does still have very pretty bridesmaid dresses and occasionwear too.
