Wedding Dresses and... Target?

So I discovered last week, in the land of the internets, that Target sells wedding dresses now.  I had no idea. It's actually a line by Tevolio that is available at Target.  Now, there are two thoughts you could be having right now.  You could be saying, "Buy my wedding dress at Target?  I would never!" or you could be saying, "It would save us so much money to get a less expensive wedding dress at Target!"  I mean, because really.  Brides usually spend $2,000 or so on their wedding dress.  If that's you, then great - I'm not here to judge - really.  I hope it was/is amazing and you looked/look fabulous.  My wedding dress was under $1,000, because we were trying to keep costs down.  If I'm being completely honest, my dress was a gift from my mother-in-law, so we actually paid nothing.  Anyway, I'm rambling on to say this may be great for you or you may roll your eyes and move on.  All I'm saying is hear me out on some options.

Bridal Gown Options

Dress 1 // Dress 2 // Dress 3
One could easily wear these gowns with simple jewelry and a nice updo (think pearls and a chignon), or accessories can be added for a little bling factor (think a flashy head headpiece and a sparkly sash).

So maybe you are not interested in bridal gowns.  They also sell bridesmaids dresses.  This would be a fabulous option for bridesmaids.  They are not too expensive and come in an array of colors.  Bonus is that if the bridesmaids never wore them again, then at least they didn't cost too much.  They have some cute options, though.

Another option is to shop these dresses for wedding related occasions.  If you are a bride-to-be, then you probably need a cute dress for your bridal shower or maybe even your bachelorette party.  These dresses can even be worn as a reception dress.  They are shorter and would be easier to dance in.

Another bonus is that Target also has flower girl dresses.  The selection is not so broad in this area, though.

You might also be able to find a very pretty dress in this collection to wear TO a wedding.  I would not wear a white dress to a wedding, though.  Call me old fashioned.  So, what do you think?  Does this seem like a good option?

*Target only knows me as the woman who spends so much she keeps them in business.  I wasn't given anything and the opinions are my own.


  1. I didn't even know they were doing that! Kind of random. Thanks for sharing :) xo
