Affordable Wedding Dresses - 1970s

The 1970s saw big hair and wide legs. Anyone looking to emulate a seventies look for their wedding can go one of two ways: a fitted and chic look like Bianca Jagger in her iconic wedding suit.

Alternatively, go for a prairie-style dress like the one worn by actress Mila Kunis in film Blood Ties.

Either way, the seventies look is great for a laid-back but stylish wedding. I've collected together five affordable seventies-style wedding dresses for you to feast your eyes on. Check them out below.

Boho Vintage Wedding Dress - Etsy

First up is a real seventies wedding dress from Daughters of Simone on Etsy. It's a real find; all over lace with long sleeves and an empire line. Incredible flattering and feminine.

I love the surprise open back too. Perfect styled like this for a woodland wedding.

Priced £381.96

Bella Lace Dress - Dreamers and Lovers

There was a lot of crochet in the seventies, this crochet mini dress manages to look retro without reminding me too much of my Grandmother's curtains. It's a definite hippie look with the flowing sleeves. Wear flowers in your hair with this one.

Priced $444

Valley Dress - Free People

Free People is a great place to look if you're after bohemian wedding dresses. I particularly love this seventies-style white dress. It's perfect for a laid back wedding. There's a definite prairie feel in this dress with the loose cut and wide sleeves. The deep V at the front and back makes it modern and a little bit sexy.

Priced £425

Paul & Joe Belted Jumpsuit - Style Bop

You can't look at seventies fashion without focusing on the jumpsuit. It may be untraditional but a jumpsuit in place of a wedding dress is a great, fresh look that screams retro style. This lovely white jumpsuit is ideal a wedding.

The waist belt is flattering and the capped sleeves have a definite seventies feel.
