Stores Similar to David’s Bridal

A David's Bridal store.

If you’re looking for an affordable wedding dress or bridesmaid’s dress, you can find one at David’s Bridal. While department stores also sell wedding dresses, they often have higher prices and less selection than this store does. Additionally, David’s Bridal is likely to have lower prices than specialty shops that sell wedding dresses as well. Some of its stores sell tuxedos for men as well. Anyway, here are some more stores like David’s Bridal.

Anthropologie Weddings

The fashionable clothing store Anthropologie has a subsidiary called Anthropologie Weddings that sells wedding dresses. This store used to be called BHLDN and while its name was changed in 2023 some people still call it BHLDN. Like David’s Bridal, Anthropologie Weddings is one of the few chain retail stores that specializes in wedding outfits. You might also find some clothing to wear to your wedding at Anthropologie itself because it sells lots of fashionable dresses.

This store is likely to have higher prices than David’s Bridal. Many of its stores are located in upscale Southern California neighborhoods at premium malls.


The department store Nordstrom also sells wedding dresses as well as accessories such as shoes and jewelry. It’s also that Nordstrom will have higher prices than David’s Bridal. I’d consider this store more upscale than other chain department stores such as J.C. Penney and Macy’s and some of the clothing it sells is very expensive. But it’s still one of the stores where you can try on a wedding outfit in person. While you can buy wedding dresses for low prices at many online stores, you can’t try them on first.

If you have a limited budget, the outlet store Nordstrom Rack may also have some wedding dresses and accessories in stock. You can also buy shoes and jewelry at Nordstrom Rack.


Another popular department store, Macy’s also sells wedding dresses, shoes, and jewelry and you can also visit its stores to try on an outfit before your wedding. Macy’s is also a popular place for guests who are attending weddings to buy gifts for the new couple and it’s common for brides to set up their registries there. This store also sells many premium household products like china plates and silverware that the new couple might need.

Macy’s isn’t a discount store either and is also likely to have higher prices than David’s Bridal. It does have more locations than other department stores so it might be easier to get to one of its stores, though. Macy’s stores are common anchor stores for Southern California malls.

JC Penney

You can also buy wedding dresses, jewelry, accessories, and shoes at JC Penney. This department store often has lower prices than other traditional department stores, although I wouldn’t consider it a discount or off-price store. Like the other traditional department stores, JC Penney is also a popular place to set up registries so guests can buy gifts for the new couple. This store sells lots of household goods in addition to clothing.

JC Penney would make a good alternative to David’s Bridal if you’re looking for an affordably priced wedding dress. It would also be a good place for bridesmaids and guests to buy clothes for the wedding. Like Macy’s, JC Penney is also a common mall anchor store.

T.J. Maxx

You can also buy wedding dresses, accessories, and decorations at T.J. Maxx. The main appeal of this store is that it sells clothing that normally costs much more elsewhere and that’s also true for its wedding dresses. You’re likely to find wedding dresses there that look like dresses with much higher price tags at other department stores. You might even see a dress by Anthropologie Weddings or another premium wedding dress maker there.

If you’re looking for reasonably-priced clothing for a wedding, this is a good alternative. T.J. Maxx also sells dresses that would be appropriate for bridesmaids and wedding guests as well.


Another off-price department store that’s very similar to T.J. Maxx, Marshalls is also known for selling fashionable clothing, beauty products, and accessories for low prices. You can buy wedding dresses and bridesmaid’s dresses there as well. This might also be a good store for a male guest to pick up a tuxedo because Marshalls is also known for selling more men’s clothing than T.J. Maxx.

While I’m primarily listing stores that sell wedding dresses in this article, wedding guests might also be interested in knowing where they can buy appropriate outfits for reasonable prices. Like David’s Bridal, Marshalls is a discount store so its wedding outfits are affordable.
