Finding a dress for your elopement or intimate wedding can be a challenge and finding a place to buy one at a good price can be even harder. Usually wedding dresses from bridal stores start at $1,000 minimum. You also have to order the dress and wait for it to come in, sometimes they can take 6-8 months depending on where they are coming from. If you are on a budget or just simply don’t have that kind of time and are planning to elope soon these companies are a great option for you ! I have come up with a list of my favorite places to buy an elopement dress at a good price without compromising quality!

Poshmark is a great place to find inexpensive wedding dresses. People sell their old dresses and there are dress designers with shops on there that design custom dresses.
