    Think You Can Tell A $99 Wedding Dress From An $1,800 One?

    By Mary Beth Quirk May 24, 2013




    Times used to be, you wanted to buy a wedding dress, you had to go to bridal shops boasting designer creations, with the prices to match. But now retailers are getting into the wedding game, providing cheaper options for customers. Target just threw its veil into the ring with its new line of bridal gowns starting at the low price of $99, which made us wonder — can anyone even pick out the less expensive gowns from their pricier counterparts?
    It’s no surprise that more retailers are getting into the marriage business: With the average cost of weddings soaring nowadays to upwards of $28,000, customers are looking to save where they can while still feeling their Big Day best.


    As such, we rounded up a few basic dresses from Target, Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters’ BHLDN line, the Vera Wang collection for David’s Bridal and J. Crew. Take a spin with our quiz and see if you can sort them out — you just might be surprised at the results.

    --QUIZ HERE--

    The only one I got right was the Target dress! Missed the other three completely.

    I got two right and two wrong. J Crew will be sad to read that I mixed up their dress with David's Bridal, I'm sure.

    Same here, Target was the only right guess. My favorite was the $350 David's Bridal.

    I liked the dress from Anthropologie. But I'm always a sucker for the Greek goddess or Marie Antoinette or anything romantic look.

    I got them all correct. I was mostly going by the prices-- I'm not very familiar with most of these places.

    I made the same guesses. That Target dress was easy to pick with its cheap fabric.

    I got 4 out of 4 and I am the least fashion conscious person I know. Wasn't really that hard. Really like A and D.
