Five Off The Rack (And Off The Chain) Wedding Dresses

Today I remembered, courtesy of a flip through my phone, that it was about this time, two years (!) ago that I bought my wedding dress. Though I did end up buying mine, to my surprise, from a bridal shop (this awesome one) I remember being totally convinced at the beginning of my search that I would probably just buy a white, not necessarily "bridal" dress. There are so many beautiful options out there, and, best of all, they all come without the insane wedding mark up- for happy wallets as well as happy hearts. Two years on I still feel a flutter when I spot a perfect white dress. So here are five beautiful, alternative, straight off the rack wedding-worthy get ups that I've spied recently and which require no trips to weird pink stores filled with tulle and smelling of vanilla candles.

1) Ulla Johnson Clara Dress, $690
