ASOS LUXE Satin Oversized Bow Back Mini Dress and Wedding Corsetted Bandeau Bowback Mini Dress
We acknowledge that neither of these two dresses have the best reviews. But here’s why we’re including them: ASOS has a great return policy, and often has some sort of sale on (you can always use CA15 to save 15% on deliveries to Canada). So these dresses are good budget-friendly options for those keeping an eye on their wedding budget.
So, if you’re willing to take the risk to see if they look great on you (which they may well do, icon!) then you could always give one of them a try.
The ASOS LUXE Wedding Satin Oversized Bow Back Mini Dress (pictured here) has an off-shoulder design with drape sleeves, and a stunning 3-dimensional large bow. The reviews suggest to size up.
The Corsetted Bandeau Bowback Mini Dress (not pictured) features a much-loved oversized bow at the back, is above-knee, and is strapless. Unlike the Revolve option, it has more of a flared skirt, and a corset-style body – for all the princess vibes!
Lessi Puff Sleeve Little White Dress With Bow
For those who love whimsical puff-sleeves and empire line fits – this dress is for you!
It features a soft and feminine oversized organza bow at the back, which trails down into a train. This can be removed to mix up your look.
A girly princess dress for any pre-wedding event!
