by Tessa Harvey

It's no secret that throwing a wedding isn't cheap -- which really sucks. Most of us usually have all of the elements of the perfect day in mind, only to have compromise when the budget takes priority. But compromising can be especially difficult when it comes to the cost of the wedding dress.

Even if you don't love all the glitz and glamour of the modern wedding (but I mean, how?), the wedding dress is undeniably the centerpiece of your special day -- uh, after the happy couple, of course.

Nonetheless, you can be sure people will definitely be talking about your dress all through the ceremony, and even the reception. So when it comes to your big day, the dress is the last thing you want to cut corners on.

Luckily, with so many options out there, you might not have to sacrifice the dress of your dreams for the sake of your budget. Maybe, with some good research, you can have the dress you want and save money for the caterer. Here are six stunning wedding dresses that (shockingly) have a price tag of $100 or less.
