15 Vintage Cottagecore Wedding Dresses Under $2000

Planning a wedding is a very complex and time-consuming matter. From budgeting to the guest list and venue choice, every part must be planned thoroughly to ensure a successful wedding day.

One of the most important parts of the wedding is the bride’s wedding dress. Everyone has their own taste but a few very popular themes have emerged that can make for an amazing wedding style.

Among them are vintage, romantic, bohemian, rustic, and whimsical. Key elements may include lace, nature, macramé, string lights, antique decor, flowers, and pastels.

Materials, silhouettes and styles are mostly inspired by dresses from decades ago with a light modern touch to them.

Every dress in this list fits one or more of these wedding themes and one of them may be the perfect choice for your cottagecore wedding.

All of these beautiful gowns cost less than $2000 but keep in mind that prices may change over time.

I wanted to start off this list with the most expensive wedding dress.

Although its regular price is above $2000, the shop frequently runs sales and I just had to include it.

I mean look at it! It literally embodies the romanticized side of farm life.

Instead of milk-white, this dress has a beautiful cream-gold color that flows all around you and drapes to the ground.

The huge puff sleeves are detachable and you can choose between different materials such as satin, silk, and chiffon.

Did you know that white wedding dresses only recently became fashionable? The meaning associated with colors constantly changes over time.

Before the 19th century, white was actually the color of mourning and not associated with weddings at all.

Wedding dresses were mostly cream but many wore blue, green or even gold.

Color greatly depended on the family’s financial resources and many women simply wore their best dress.

This champagne, vintage-inspired gown enchants with plenty of richly embroidered flowers and sequin embellishments.

The net under layer is wrapped in a voluminous skirt that softly flows around the legs.

Yes, this is the second dress from Etsy and it’s even from the same designer (and it won’t be the last one).

During my research, I stumbled across Etsy for wedding dresses again and again.

After viewing hundreds of dresses I must say that it’s simply the best place online to find a beautiful, custom dress.

The designs are unique, elegant, and most importantly vintage. The skirt of this dress is absolutely breathtaking.

The embroidery and beads on the top look like delicate vines that stretch across the upper front and flow into the puffy skirt with a long train.
