Wedding celebrations are getting more casual and intimate by the day. Unsurprisingly, fashion choices are reflecting this shift, and many of today’s chicest affianced are channeling Carolyn Bessette’s iconic ’90s bridal style—with silky, slinky slip dresses. We love these unfussy frocks because they’re dance-floor and dessert-buffet-ready—so we rounded up our favorite bargain versions on the market.
