Imagine it's just a regular Tuesday morning, and you're browsing the new arrivals section at ASOS (not at work, obviously!), and you happen upon the best bridal discovery of all time -- the first ever ASOS wedding dress collection! The new collection, an 18-piece selection of dresses in trend-driven silhouettes, and wallet-friendly prices, is just in time for spring and summer brides with some last-minute wedding dress shopping on their to-do list. From sexy gathered fishtail detailing to vintage-inspired dresses, and even a bridal jumpsuit complete with a superwoman cape overlay (hello Solange Knowles!), this new offering from one our favorites has something for every bride. Oh, and did we forget to mention, not one of these dresses are over $500? You're welcome.

Perfect for a beach wedding or an upscale city extravaganza, this deep plunge strappy fishtail dress is screen siren glam at its best! Above: Bridal Deep Plunge Strappy Fishtail Maxi Dress, $161, ASOS

Love the look of a crop top but skittish on the idea of bearing your midriff down the aisle? This dress with a faux pearl encrusted bodice over a barely there slice of chiffon, gives the illusion of a crop top, without putting your killer abs on display. Beautiful for any occasion! We're also totally crushing on the side swept ponytail shown with this look. Pearl Crop Top Maxi Dress, $161, ASOS

The floral and rhinestone clusters on this hand-embroidered dress jazz up an otherwise simple silhouette (very 90s minimalism if you as us!). The high neckline is right on trend while the cross-back straps add a little extra skin to the mix. All Over Embellished Cami Maxi Dress, $255, ASOS

Talk about 1920s glamour! These slinky iridescent flutter sleeve gown will have everyone wondering if you shelled out for a genuine vintage piece. With faux pearls and iridescent sequins adoring the slip like dress, you'll glow as you walk down the aisle and as you glide across the dance floor. Iridescent Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress, $255, ASOS

The below styles are not available on site yet, but are coming soon to an ASOS near you. Can we talk about that off-the-shoulder high-low hemline dress for a minute? Major Self Portrait vibes!
