We only partner with brands that we genuinely love that share the same equality-minded values as we do. Compensation for this post was provided by Flash Book Bridal for Aisle Society. All opinions are the author's own and are not endorsed by Flash Book Bridal, Aisle Society or their affiliates. 

When a wedding dress company's tagline is “It's your day. Wear what you want” you know that this is a brand that is beyond the ball gown. Now I love a good tulle skirt as much as the next person, but the entire ethos of Flash Book Bridal is that they value expression over tradition, style over subtlety, and the power of love over the size of a price tag, and that loving yourself is the foundation of a strong marriage. Can I get a hell yes?! 

From 70s-inspired shift dresses to off-the-shoulder separates and colorfully embroidered tea length outfits, their curated collection has options that you can use for pre-wedding showers, bach parties or the big day itself. Or, you know, just date night. And the best part? All items are under $600. Yes, you read that right — only two zeros there. So let's check out their top five styles (that are actually all under $300!).

Meet Chloe. She's sexy. A criss-cross neckline and a-line silhouette, she's going to be flattering on pretty much everyone. And while it's tough to tell in the picture, the fabric shimmers with ivory and gold (view a closeup here). Price: $295

Boasting sequins and colorful embroidery, Michelle is for the fashionista. This tea length nude colored dress features a sweetheart neckline, a black (removable) belt at the waist, and a zipper up the back. Price: $295

The lace on Jane and Emma make them go so well together, don't you think? Jane's bell sleeves are perfect for those who want boho vibes (and also very on-trend!). She comes with a stretchy cami that can be worn underneath. Price: $55

And Emma … oh she's a fun little number. Packed with layers of tulle and covered with lace, this retro look completely transforms when worn with a belt! Price: $55

Vicki is just one of those great pieces that can be worn a million different ways. I see her paired with a gorgeous tulle skirt, or chic cigarette pants. The elegant satin top features a sweetheart neckline that extends into arm cuffs and it has a small cutout in the belly and a pleated peplum open in the front and back. Price: $65
