      Try looking on Unique Wedding Dresses,Unusual Wedding Dresses,Inexpensive Wedding Dresses. I was on there yesterday and found some nice stuff. Also try the clearance racks @ your local department stores. You would be suprised what you find there.

        There are two websites that I have seen that have very inexpensive dresses and lots of styles to choose from - LittleCoral.com and Fashioninthebox.com I haven't ordered anything from either, but with the style choices and prices, I just may take a chance. Good Luck!

            Its really hit or miss but I found my TTD on craigslist, just over $100, tags still attached, never worn. And the seller was another bride who found a second dress. She wants to see pics when I get them back. To me plus is you can try it on and walk out with it immediately or walk away. Good luck!!

              I got mine from David's bridal, internet sales section. 99$. At first they did not have my size but I kept on coming back and for sure somebody returned one in my size that I immediately ordered. Worked out perfect.

                I also had a Maggie gown (well, Sottero and Midgley but whatever!) and didn't want to "trash" that gown either, Nicole!

                I found a fantastic gown for $50 on eBay...if you search for your size and keep checking you can find something really great that you won't mind wearing in the ocean, for a fraction of the cost! I didn't want to spend over $100 for my TTD gown, and I had one that I worked great for my pics, so maybe give eBay a look?

                Either way, good luck sugar!

                  Ebay, Craigslist, Kijiji, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, OnceWed.com, etc, etc.

                  I have two .... one of which is for sale ....a Jim Hjelm replica (style #8800). The one I am actually wearing is from David's Bridal ... the $99 rack! :)

                      Why don’t you try David’s Bridal? They usually have dresses for $99 and you will be able to try them on in the store. They also have some online too as ayita said. I got my dress from DB and they ordered it for me and it came in only a week after they ordered it.
