One of the most exciting moments for most women after the initial “I’m engaged!” realisation has hit home, is “what kind of wedding dress will I choose!?” But as fabulous as dress shopping can be, it can also turn into a stressful search for the right gown at the right price.

Well maybe your search has come to an end if you’re looking for a simple, elegant and ethereal outfit with an amazingly affordable price! American based Saja has nailed the grecian goddess look to create a whimsical and timeless line for 2012.

While the overall impression is one of effortless simplicity, I love that each dress has a little detail to set it apart and create interest, be it an unusual back silhouette, beaded strap, or lace sleeve.

Saja actually do a separate bridesmaid collection that’s filled with colourful fluid dresses and well worth a look. But if the Pippa Middleton trend for white bridesmaid dresses has piqued your interest, I think the short dresses in the bridal collection would be an adorable choice for your special ladies! How fun would the beaded flapper style dress look at a 1920′s influenced celebration?

Saja don’t currently have a boutique in Ireland where you can try on the dresses, but they do ship worldwide. If you happen to be stateside, there are plenty of stores throughout the country where they are stocked. Regardless of where you live, they are happy to personally guide you through the process of choosing the right style and size dress for you and your occasion, so that you are comfortable with the decision.

I can’t say I was lucky enough to try on any Saja dresses during my own dress hunt but most of the dresses are made with silk chiffon and silk charmeuse in flowing silhouettes, so I would imagine that they would be incredibly comfortable to move in for the day.

So I’ve saved the best news for last!

All of the gorgeous dresses you see here are priced between $595 and $1400! I probably shouldn’t mention the ‘euro’ word at the moment, but even with today’s conversion there is the potential to pick up a designer quality dress at a distinctly less than designer price!

And if you’d like to sell your dress after the big day be sure to check out our Preloved Marketplace where you can list items without paying any fee!

Have any Style Serendipity readers already chosen a Saja dress, or other wedding dress that had to be shipped from abroad for your big day?

How did you find the buying a dress online experience? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
