6 Chic Off-The-Rack Wedding Dresses For The Laid Back Bride

Effortlessly chic.

As soon as the engagement ring slips onto your finger, the pressure to find the perfect wedding dress begins.

From bridal boutiques posting stressful dress shopping timelines on social media to friends asking whether you have booked your fittings yet and of course, the extortionate cost, sometimes saying yes to the dress feels like more work than its worth.

There is, however, another option—the off-the-rack wedding dress.

These days, off-the-rack dresses aren’t only being bought by the last minute bride, they’re also the preferred option of those wanting to take the stress out of planning their big day and those who can’t stand the idea of wearing a big white dress.

Like Carrie Bradshaw’s registry office number, ready to wear wedding dresses are favoured by the ever so chic courthouse brides, as well as fashion girls who want to wear a label they love.

Below, six off-the-rack wedding dresses we’d wear to our weddings.
