A few designers that come to mind in addition to those already listed above and that are +/- 1K... Essence of Austrailia, Mori Lee, Casablanca, Wtoo, Impressions, Moonlight and Bonny.
Happy hunting and enjoy the process!
Thanks for the help! I was up all night looking up the designers...some I'd heard about, but a few I'd never seen before, so it was exciting! Now I just have to figure out what kind I want....I get settled on one style & then I see a pretty dress in another style & I'm changing my mind!
I love the idea of paying almost half the price for the dress by going the pre-owned/sample dress route....but scared to order a dress without seeing it in person or trying it out. I'm usually pretty laid back, but this wedding is making me an uptight-witch-with-a-"b" ha! We go back to the States next month, so hopefully I have an idea about what kind of dress I want & find this sucker!
