Aside from the hearthrob that is Henry Golding, the Crazy Rich Asians wedding scene is undoubtedly one of the film's main highlights. Complete with a wedding-aisle-turned-makeshift-river, an indoor garden feel, and the bride's wedding jumpsuit with thousands of Swarovski crystals, it's safe to assume you've never seen a wedding this extravagant, either on-screen or off. While the author of the original novel, Kevin Kwan, had anticipated the opulent Singapore nuptials to cost around $40 million dollars, the production team got creative when it came to creating the look for less in the movie adaption—even with the bridesmaid dresses.
If you were able to pull your attention away from the bride, Araminta Lee's (Sonoya Mizuno) Mary Vogt ensemble during the wedding, you probably caught glimpses of the shimmery gown that her maid of honor sported while standing beside her at the altar. Yes, the film's bridal party gowns certainly look like a million bucks, but maid of honor's dress in particular is shockingly (dare we say, crazy) affordable. Plus, good news for any future brides and 'maids, you can shop the exact same frock for your own wedding, if you're feeling inspired by the movie's extravagance.
Designed by Adrianna Papell, the taupe evening gown features all-over hand-sewn beading, a cinched waist, thin straps, and, best of all, a mere $300 price tag. Also available in blush, navy, silver, and plus sizes, this shimmery number can easily accommodate your bridesmaid crew. Even mixing and matching hues would make for show-stopping photos with your girls.

Although this dress may not be on par with every bridal style, fashion is at the forefront of the Crazy Rich Asians plot (as clearly evidenced by the bride's big day ensemble and luxe wedding guest looks), so you know such a gown would meet even Eleanor Young's coveted clothing approval. And that's truly saying something.
