Attention, brides-to-be: If you dreamed about wearing a designer wedding dress but could never swing the price tag, today might be your lucky day. Just in time for peak wedding season, the savvy sample-sale e-tailer Gilt is launching its biannual bridal event, at noon Friday, featuring major discounts on all things bridal. Think wedding gowns from designers including Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, and Marchesa; bridesmaid dresses from Twobirds and Erin Fetherston; accessories from Kenneth Jay Lane, Judith Leiber, and René Caovilla; and wedding gifts from Schott Zwiesel—all at up to 60 percent off retail.

In addition to bridal steals and deals, this season Gilt has teamed up with Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty, who has curated a sale of some her favorite wedding essentials for brides and shared her tips for planning your dream nuptials.

Don’t wait too long to stock up on all your wedding must-haves—Gilt’s wedding is one of the most anticipated bridal sales, and the best items sell out quickly.
