Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
At Bridal Traditions, we have worked a long time trying to find the right suppliers and designers to work with in order to provide gorgeous dresses for prices that don't make brides wring their hands and settle for less. Or run screaming into traffic. Both bad options.
Just recently, we made it official: ALL of our current wedding dresses are priced under $1,000 and we actually have some under $200 that will bliss you out too. In today’s market, this is extremely difficult for boutiques like ours to do, so we could not be prouder.
So much of what we do at BT is about helping ladies "know thyself." If you know who you are and what you want, then the scope narrows to a select few things:
- cut of the dress;
- season when you marry;
- theme of your wedding;
- time of day for your ceremony;
- and cost.
If you order online or from a large retailer, you may get a lower price, but you don't get our time, our team and our dedication to your vision and so much of that is in those 5 items above. We are so excited to be able to offer all price ranges to our brides AND these gowns are elegant, fun and worthy of the occasion. Here is just a sampling.
Above: Designed to be artistic, add the V-neck front and embroidery, this dress is not a dress - it's a gown. Architectural in design but not structure. So think comfort and elegance.
Below: To sleeve or not to sleeve...... Some ladies love them, and they can create a classic look (think: Grace Kelly and Meghan Markle).
This gown, below, has a plunging neckline and fitted shape that will showoff the bride's figure, but it also has an interesting tiered skirt with lace details. It looks expensive and like a thoughtful girl chose it. It just doesn't happen to be $5K. Again, it's under $1,000.
All of these gowns are affordable and elevated in how they are constructed and designed, AND how they look on brides.
Above: This dress is perfect for a beach wedding or a casual summer outdoor wedding. It is under $200 and absolutely lovely. Beautiful fabric and cut and with a belt, it is bohemian too. Add freesia as part of a headpiece or garland for her hair or create a bouquet of wildflowers, put on Grecian sandals and you're ready.
Elements of mid-century modern, the Empire State building and fine art deco. This dress is The Great Gatsby. Beyond elegance.
Brides who wear a gown under $1,000 have money for the rest of their wedding, their honeymoon and their future.
Ladies: come in and see for yourselves. We are so proud of this collection of dresses.
