There is a wedding gown store on Orfus Road called Your White Dress. All of their gowns are $299 and they do have a decent selection. I will say this: much will depend on your taste. They do not have any/many frilly, princess designer gowns with crystal beading. Mind you, I did see the most beautiful gown that I would have bought in a heart beat if I were an Ivory Bride...but I want pure white.
The styles are simpler, but nice for a simple destination wedding all the same. They would also be great for a TTD.
They don't show much on the site, but if you can visit the store, it may be worth it.

H2B and I work together as wedding photographers and are in the priveliged position of seeing many weddings with all types of budgets, one thing we've learned is that the happiness of the couple, the atmosphere of the day and more often than not the bride-zilla-ometer is never a reflection of the cost1
Whether its poundland or Prada, relax, enjoy and count your blessings.

1)shop in stores to try things on but then see if you can find it online
my MOH's dress was $300 at a bridal store, we took the brand and style number and searched the internet and it was $160
Wedding Dresses, Prom Dresses, and Designer Wedding Dresses
i'm going to do the same with my tiara. shop to find the style i like but then order online. i just can't justify a $100 tiara from a wedding store when i'm going to get to wear it once
2) shop everywhere and always keep your eye out for what you need even if you're not specifically shopping for wedding stuff. i bought my wedding jewelry at Claire's accessories. $14.50 for my braclet, earrings and toe ring.
3) instead of getting my makeup done at the resort salon i'm going to Mac or Sephora and getting a make over done with my MOH watching. i think they're free but you might have to buy some minimum amount of make up. don't quote me on that cuz i haven't gone yet. lol. then i'll buy the make up they use and have my MOH do my wedding makeup
