Bridal Gowns Under $500 For The Bride About To Elope!

Bridal Gowns Under $500 For The Bride About To Elope! featured on Shopalicious.com

It's almost the end of May and for brides on the verge of "I Do", mired in the stress of wedding preparations, eloping to a faraway, romantic place must have crossed their minds--at least once! But for those itinerant brides who would prefer to spend their hard-earned cash on two plane tickets to the Maldives, here are some chic and affordable options. Packability is of utmost importance, considering that you'll either roll it--not fold it--in white tissue paper and lay it amongst your clothes in your suitcase, or, you can purchase a water repellant bridal gown hanging bag, which should garner you the well-wishes of the flight attendants on board who might--just might--let you hang it up front in the little hanging closet in first class. A simple flowing, unstructured gown is your best bet--since you won't have a bevy of bridesmaids to help you get dressed! But there's no need to sacrifice style; shoot for effortlessly undone! Here's the lineup, from left to right:
Avery Asymmetrical Dress, $168.00 from BCBG Max Azria;
