Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary. TEN! Can you believe it? It brought back a lot of memories from my wedding day and the planning process. During that time, there weren’t very many wedding dress brands that I could choose from. After all, I had a budget to stick to. Online ordering wasn’t really a thing when it came to wedding dresses and the town I live in only had two shop – only one of which I could afford.
I quickly found out that the dresses within my budget did not reflect my personal style and I ended up finding my “dream dress” at 3x the amount of my budget (I DIY-ed a lot of the centerpieces, my bouquet and my veil to make up for it). It was only the second dress I tried on but somehow I knew it was the one. I don’t regret my dress one bit! It was beautiful, feminine and romantic. I do regret the price though lol! And I wish I had more affordable options available to me at that time.
If you’re an avid reader, you already know that wedding style is basically my everyday style lol! I love beautiful dresses and I love any excuse to wear them. Many have asked previously for more affordable options when it comes to wedding and special occasion dresses that don’t sacrifice style or quality. Well, my friends… I think I’ve found the solution to your problems. AW Bridal offers all of that and more!
Read on for my honest AW Bridal Review where I include my experience with the brand itself along with my thoughts on their wedding dresses and special occasion dresses. And of course, I included lots of feminine dresses for eye candy 😉 I know you will love them!!
AW Bridal Review
What is AW Bridal?
AW Bridal is a shop that creates and sells high quality, affordable wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and mother-of-the-bride dresses along with dresses for wedding guests, prom and other special occasions. They also offer bridal accessories like robes, jewelry, headpieces, sashes and more. The special thing about them, in my opinion, is that they are VERY size-inclusive and even offer free customizations.
AW Bridal Sizing
As I mentioned previously, AW Bridal sizing is incredibly inclusive offering sizes 0-30 along with custom sizing! They also offer free customizations, which is unheard of (and so important when it comes to formal wear). I’m usually a size 2/4 but my hip measurements are much larger than my top so I opted to have each of these dresses customized to fit my exact measurements.
Oh my goodness, the first time I tried these dresses on was like a dream come true. They fit PERFECT! The tailor deserves a standing ovation lol! Having a garment that fits correctly is always nice for everyday fashion but for special occasion wear, it’s essential. Not only does it look luxe, but it feels like the garment was made just for you.
AW Bridal Quality
This is my first experience with AW bridal and one of the things that I was pleasantly surprised by was the quality! For a special occasion dress and wedding dress brand, they are highly affordable! From the second I tried on the items, I knew that the quality had not been sacrificed for the price. Usually these are mutually exclusive but somehow they are able to offer both competitive pricing and beautiful high quality items. Their dresses include luxe materials, stunning details, flattering silhouettes and unique designs. Plus they have many different options to choose from based on your personal style.
Is AW Bridal legit?
Yes, AW Bridal is legit! I’m sure that affordable wedding dresses and wedding guest dresses with quality fabrics and intricate details seem too good to be true, but I assure you that it’s not. I’m very pleased with my experience!

Affordable AW Bridal Wedding Dresses
Shopping for a wedding dress is undoubtable one of the most exciting things about wedding planning! However, it can be overwhelming, especially when you have a million things on your wedding day to-do list. Ordering a wedding dress online may be a bit untraditional and I know how nerve-racking it can be not knowing whether or not it’s going to fit but I’m here to ease your mind 😉 AW Bridal offers FREE custom sizing to ensure you’re not going back and forth with the tailor (true story lol!). Here are a few of my favorite options!
AW Bridal Maisie Wedding Dress (use lizzieinlace for 10% off!)
Can you believe how gorgeous this dress is? It’s like a boho dream! If you love feminine romantic style, this is the dress for you. It showcases STUNNING beadwork and intricate florals throughout the entirety of the dress. The sheer, billowy sleeves give off such a romantic vibe and the v-neck is incredibly flattering. As beautiful as this dress is, the real show-stopping detail is the back. With a heart shaped cut out and pearl embellishments, this detail is definitely a jaw dropper.
I also really love the shape of this affordable wedding dress! It’s fitted to the body in such a gorgeous way and flares out beautifully at the bottom. This shape is actually very similar to what I wore on my own wedding day! I felt so beautiful and let me you, I feel equally as beautiful in this dress. My husband, brother and mom also really loved this one! It definitely gives me Taylor Swift Folklore/Evermore vibes. As for the fit, initially I was worried about the fitted silhouette because my proportions are a bit exaggerated but AW Bridal tailored it to perfection!
AW Bridal Reba Wedding Dress (use lizzieinlace for 10% off!)
If there was ever a princess wedding dress, this is it! It’s so regal and glamorous with sparkling sequins and elegant pearls adorning the entire gown. I feel like this is definitely something that Cinderella would wear for modern day. This stunning dress includes a flattering sweetheart neckline (my favorite!), a sheer fitted top and layers of fabric to create the dreamiest fairytale silhouette. At first, I was unsure of the sheer top since it’s not what I usually go for but I fell so hard for this dress. It’s just SO pretty! And I’m happy to report that the sheerness is so tastefully done. The sequins cover everything beautifully and this dress, like all the others, has built in bra cups so you don’t have to worry about undergarments peaking through.
This stunning princess dress is also incredibly versatile! It comes with a jeweled belt, tulle “gloves” and removable sleeves making it super easy to customize. The tulle gloves, in particular, are so unique! They act as an extension of the sleeve with pearl and sequin embellishments. It’s a very unexpected and modern touch! When I was shooting this, I cannot tell you how many people stopped to gawk over the gorgeousness of this AW Bridal dress. It honestly made me feel like an Old Hollywood starlet!
Affordable Wedding Guest Dresses from AW Bridal
If you are looking for stunning special occasion dresses, these are some of my faves! AW Bridal has a lot of options for wedding guest dresses, showers, mother-of-the-bride, bridesmaid, formal, prom, and any other special occasion you can think of. Like their wedding dresses, they also offer custom sizing!
Pink AW Bridal Hollyhock Dress (use lizzieinlace for 10% off!)
When I saw this dress online, I fell in love with the unique design! The color is the prettiest shade of pink and the design has an other-worldly, vintage look to it. The ruffles are what make it so unique. I just adore the waist line – it’s so feminine and flattering. The layered handkerchief hem and puff sleeves are super romantic and whimsical. It also has a corset-style back, which I love, and it twirls like a dream. This would be a great option for any time. I feel like you could easily dress is down with a pair of flats, sneakers or sandals or dress it up with heels and glam accessories!
Blue AW Bridal Millie Dress (use lizzieinlace for 10% off!)
This dress is SUCH a dream! I don’t ever do cap sleeves but I feel like this one is so flattering. I love all of the gorgeous floral appliqué. It gives it a very feminine and romantic look! The sweetheart neckline and button details are super girly and vintage looking. The entire dress is very princess-y! Absolutely love the tulle fabric, the flattering silhouette and the illusion neckline with the appliqué. Plus it twirls so well – what a stunner of a dress! This is definitely a more formal option that would be perfect as a wedding guest dress or any other special occasion.
Pink AW Bridal Littie Dress (use lizzieinlace for 10% off!)
Talk about a fairytale! I loved this AW Bridal bridesmaid dress online but let me tell you, it’s even more beautiful in person!! This is the definition of a princess dress. It’s made with most perfect shade of pink tulle covered from head to toe in 3D pastel florals and pink pearls. I don’t wear spaghetti straps much anymore but I couldn’t pass this beauty up. It’s so flattering, feminine and romantic! The top has boning to create that ultra feminine silhouette and it’s also slightly sheer, something I don’t usually go for but this works and it’s beautiful!! Although it’s a bit more dressy, I do think that this could work for various occasions like a nice birthday, shower, garden party, tea, etc.
Overall Review for AW Bridal
Overall, I am really happy with all of my dresses from AW Bridal! I absolutely love the gorgeous, high quality-designs. Regarding sizing, I love that they offer not only a variety of sizes but customizations as well to fit any body type. They customized each of these dress for me and they ALL fit like a gloves – so perfect! I wasn’t sure what to expect quality-wise but I’m happy to report, that all of these are so beautifully made with high quality fabrics and attention to detail. All of these dresses also have super comfortable built in bra cups, which I love!! I can’t say enough good things about them. This was my very first AW Bridal experience but it won’t be my last 🙂 Highly recommend if you are looking for affordable wedding dresses or any type of special occasion dress.
