When it comes to planning a wedding, there’s nothing more exciting for a bride than picking out a wedding dress.

Most brides dream of that magical bridal moment — when they put on the perfect gown for the first time and see themselves in the mirror. Usually this moment brings tears to the bride’s eyes, especially if she’s also wearing a veil and other bridal accessories.

Unfortunately, what many people don’t realize is that bridal accessories can actually be really expensive. Did you know that most veils actually cost between $250 and $300?

Now just think about all the other accessories you need — shoes, headbands, garters, jewelry, and more.

When you add it all up, bridal accessories can cost a lot of money.

That said, there are a lot of affordable options out there; you just have to know where to look. And we’re here to help you out! All 20 bridal accessories on the list below cost under $100.
