It's one of the most important days of a bride's life but a wedding day can also be one of the most expensive.More and more brides are coming up with different ways to dress themselves and their wedding party.

The creative team at J-Crew has been paying close attention to the trend.

J-Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons says,"We were getting a lot of letters and photographs from our customers who had purchased a random dress from us, whether it was a beach or silk dress and showing is they used it fro the wedding" .

So the company launched a wedding collection. The dresses are made with fabric from the same mills that other top designers use. The big difference? The price point starts at $175 and goes to around $3,000.

The folks at Ann Taylor are on the same page.

They now have affordable dresses that fit the budget of any bride's maid.

Their prices start at $159 and go to just $229.

Now that age old dilemma: What to do with all these dresses after the wedding? The designers have also kept that in mind, making the pieces simple and versatile.

Style expert Liza Bychkov says,"It's a piece that really translates thru times, you can add a cardigan and go out with girlfriends to lunch, you can really wear it on multiple occasions beyond the wedding."
