When it comes to planning for the big day, wedding dress shopping can be a daunting task — and if you’re plus size, there are a lot of brands that haven’t yet caught up to the fact that it’s 2018 and they should carry sizes larger than a 12. This makes the process even more difficult.

But more brands are beginning to create size-inclusive wedding dresses and — here’s the best part — all of the plus-size wedding dresses we rounded up here today are under $400. From classic strapless confections to sparkle-encrusted bodices to vintage-inspired, tea-length dresses, there’s something for every type of bride. Also proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune on a dress you’re only going to wear once. See our picks below.
