Summer wedding season is in full swing—and this month we wanted to ring it in with a grand ball gown. Alfred Angelo's taffeta and organza confection—complete with a ruffled skirt and chapel train—was just what we were looking for, and at $899 it could be the 21st gown in our our list of 20 Gorgeous Wedding Gowns Under $1,000. We added a bit of sparkle to the dress with an Elizabeth Bower Swarovski crystal headband, Paul Morelli diamond studs and a Kendra Scott 14-karat gold-plated cuff. To complete the look, florist Amy Merrick created a bright bouquet of tree peonies, poppies, garden roses, poppy pods, claire de lune peonies and geranium leaf.

You can see more of Amy Merrick's handiwork in our Iconic Wedding Bouquets slideshow, and browse the entire Alfred Angelo wedding dress collection here.
