Outlet retailer T.J. Maxx launched a wedding shop this week — perfect for the millennial bride with too many student loans to pay full price on a $3,000+ wedding gown. While the selection offers tiered ballgowns at $1,000, a bargain-hunting bride can find her perfect dress at T.J. Maxx for as low as $50.
In addition to bridal gowns, the wedding shop offers options for bridesmaids, mothers of the bride, little white dresses for pre-wedding festivities and accessories including bridal shoes and handbags.
Ranging in price from $35 to $300, the bridesmaid collection offers over 70 styles, leaving plenty of options for a group of women to agree upon. All reasonably priced, the footwear options include the classic subtly embellished pump, slip-on mules, lace-up sandals, block heels and peep-toes.
Shopping T.J. Maxx, brides can walk down the aisle having spent anywhere from under $150 to buying a $3,850 gown-and-shoe pairing for just $1,750.
For $110, a bride can find a classic sweetheart gown with lace detailing and elegant draping, plus simple strap sandals pumps.

This look is originally priced at $485, but a modern bride can find it at T.J. Maxx for $250. The allover lace jumpsuit features a halter neck and a belted waist, making it a graceful alternative to a dress. The ruched, embellished shoe adds a classic touch.

This high-end look costs only $1,750 at T.J. Maxx rather than its original price of $3,850. The Nouvelle by Amsale gown is made stunning by ethereal organza tiers, and the Valentino Rockstud pumps offer a contemporary accent whenever they peak out from under the gown.
