Wedding Dress Budget
Posted 12 January 2009 - 05:17 PM
Can I find a dress like that in the bridal shops? Or am I wasting my time going there. Im afraid Ill fall in love with a dress that is way out of my budget!

I would definetely look into sample sales in your area and/or if the bridal shops you are going to would be willing to sell you their sample.
Just make sure that you tell the sales people your budget that way you aren't trying on anything that you cannot afford.
Otherwise, a bridesmaid dress is a great option. I tried on bunch that were amazing and all came in white!
Davids Bridal also has a great selection of dresses at a lower price point.
It's definetely 'doable'.. it just may take a bigger effort.

also, check Nordstrom: Designer Collections and Top Apparel, Shoe and Beauty Brands, they have a bridal section and have several for near $100!
no reason it HAS to be an actual wedding gown, try searching "white dress" and see what you find!
or check ebay. make sure if you do buy something there you are aware of the sellers return policy, or that the item has not been altered yet.

- don't restrict yourself to designers that are less expensive in the first place... you want to find the cut that you like, first, and second, you might find the dress of your dreams on sale - on the net or on ebay or in a store
- some designers have regular sales, or prices that are naturally lower : check out David's bridal, Alfred Angelo, Mori Lee (the destination collection have dresses that are usually lower than 400$)
- be careful with the website that make copies of designer dresses. it looks like the quality is not necessarily there... However do go for websellers that make sales ! You can do that once you have tried a few on and you know what you're looking for.
Good luck ! It's feasible
