BRIDES can spend thousands – or even millions – on the perfect wedding dress.
But one woman decided to hedge her bets by going budget to save money, and ordered a bridal gown online… from Shein.

Miranda works as a photographer in Vancouver, and explained in a video on TikTok that she needed a dress for an elopement photoshoot on a beach in Costa Rica.
And while she would usually turn to a boutique near the location to collaborate with, she insisted there were no options nearby.
“Ok, this is the dress,” she said as she removed it from the packaging.
“I think I should try it on because I’m the same size as my model, so let’s just see how it looks.
“Also another reason I ordered a dress from here is that first of all, I needed a light dress because I needed to pack it in my suitcase to get there.”
Another reason Miranda wanted to get a cheap dress was so her model could “trash” it and wear it into the water.
“When you rent from bridal places you have to be so careful with the wedding dresses because they’re thousands of dollars.
“But this was literally $100 (£82).”
Standing back to admire her reflection in the white dress, which featured bell sleeves and a thigh-high split, Miranda gasped: “Ok, I feel like nobody’s going to be able to even tell!”
She also ordered a veil but had “no expectations” for how that was going to look.
However, when she put the look together, she acknowledged that it was “not freaking bad”.
“This is going to work for a beachy, elopement shoot in Costa Rica,” she said.
“Totally gonna work,” one person commented on the video.
As another added: “Well now I’m buying my wedding dress from SHEIN lol.”
“I LOVE SHEIN!!! You look amazing!” a third wrote.
“My wedding dress was from shein,” someone else commented.
“It was beautiful!”
