The 20 Best Etsy Wedding Dresses for Your Outdoor Wedding

Did you know that you do not HAVE to go to a bridal shop to find your wedding dress? For me, the wedding dress shopping experience was "eh". I didn't look forward to walking into a bridal boutique, trying on loads of dresses that didn't feel like "me".

Luckily, in 2021, there are so many places to buy beautiful, couture wedding dresses online! Many brides are choosing to wear a custom wedding dress that is just as unique as their intimate wedding or elopement. And at prices that are hard to beat because they are buying directly from an independent designer. Even better, most of the dress designers listed do not upcharge for a larger size!

If you are like me, you are turning to Etsy for a lot of your custom wedding accessories and decorative elements. You value independent artists and designers and want unique, handmade elements for your intimate wedding. I bet buying handmade and from independent artists is ingrained in your soul- you like spending your money where you know it will help someone and not a giant corporation. So, why not browse Etsy for a famously affordable, custom wedding dress for your unique wedding or elopement?

Reasons to buy your custom wedding dress on Etsy:

  • Made to order

  • Handmade

  • Reasonable Return/Exchange policies*

  • High Quality

  • Affordable

*Be sure to check the return and exchange policies of the shop before buying. Rather than offering returns or exchanges due to fit, some shops will make a sample dress to try on to ensure they have the correct measurements.

There is something very human about buying from a maker on Etsy. You are helping an individual. As an independent business owner, I know that I do a happy dance every time I make a sale! The Etsy wedding dress designers are no different. Other perks of buying your wedding dress off of Etsy are:

  • You know where in the world your dress was made

  • You are buying a truly unique wedding dress

  • You are getting a good deal and know why it costs what it does

By buying your unique wedding gown on Etsy, you are buying directly from the designer, which is why so much of your dress can be customized. There is no middleman and no shop to interfere.
