Bride with a limited budget: beauty expert tries cheap wedding dresses from ASOS – and is very surprised by the results
- Beauty blogger Tina Yong has purchased four wedding outfits from ASOS
- They ranged in price from $ 128 to $ 438.65 and made another statement
- Tina, who is from Melbourne, was surprised that they were passable for a wedding
- She expected the quality to be less than that of a couture bridal shop
A beauty blogger tried four online wedding outfits from an online retailer to see if she could find a high quality item of clothing for a reasonable price – and she was very surprised by the results.
Tina Yong, who is based in Melbourne, Australia, got engaged in May 2019 with her groom Alfred, this year’s couple, so she ordered a few items of clothing from ASOS to see what was available at the cheaper end of the spectrum.
The 29-year-old was surprised to discover that most dresses match her slender figure and are made of high-quality material, which proves that you don’t have to spend thousands to get the look you want.

Two of the jackets came in a clothes bag with hangers, which was a nice touch, giving Tina the feeling that she was buying something important.
The bandeau-style wedding dress with a trumpet zoom ($ 354.81) was the first she tried and unfortunately, it did not leave the lasting impression that Tina was looking for.
“I thought it would look more expensive than it is. The material has a cheap shine and it makes me a little grumpy, “Tina said YouTube.
The dress did not hold onto her waist or thighs as it did on the model and it wrinkled very easily when you moved around.
The second dress was much better with a lace halter and maxi fit ($ 284.45) because it had a fuller skirt and a more expensive feel to the fabric
The third dress, a lace bandeau maxi dress in white for $ 128, was the cheapest of the bunch, but didn’t find Tina particularly budget-friendly
Describing as ‘resembling a curtain’, this was Tina’s most unpleasant outfit of the bunch.
The second dress was much better with a lace halter and maxi fit ($ 284.45) because it had a fuller skirt and a more expensive feel to the fabric.
‘It is really comfortable and in no way too tight. I think it looks like the model … there are no surprises, “she said.
The only thing that would have changed this was the absence of spangles around the waist, which would be nicely matched to the lace.
The third dress, a lace bandeau maxi dress in white for $ 128, was the cheapest of the but found Tina not particularly budget friendly.
The last option was a blazer of $ 236.54 combined with trousers of $ 202.11, both in a white glitter and sequin trim
She said it hugged her figure nicely, although the sleeves would prevent her from partying on the evening of her wedding.

‘I think it’s chic and a bit different. The blazer is structured when it is actually on, although the pants are a bit loose, “she said.
Tina suggested it as an option for those who don’t like dresses or want to mix things at the reception.
