      Hey Kash- the beauty of this forum is, you can pretty much ask what you want and say what you want. If we don't like it or think you're rude, the same applies- we'll tell you!
      I wouldn't worry about it, those that don't want to share won't and for the rest of us, we're just happy to be able to help someone else out...

My advice- find what makes you feel beautiful, but set your budget ahead of time. Once I found this dress, I would have paid for it no matter how much it cost, I loved it so much- luckily it was cheap!

            You are all fantastic - thank you so much for your help!

            Tasha - I love that you found your dress on eBay!

            So what I've learned is that there are great dresses at every price range and it all just depends on what looks good on ME... Though I probably won't be trying on any $10K dresses...

            Was the sample sale at Saks all sizes or just tiny sizes? It seems like wedding dresses run super small so I doubt they'll have my size in a sample... unless they carry one of each size for try-ons.

            I'm definitely going to check out Weddingbee and Preownedweddingsdresses and EBay - any other recommendations?

                I had originally set a budget of $2,000 for my gown.

                I ended up falling in love with one that was retailing for $700 - $770. I ended up ordering the dress from RK Bridal in New York. They will beat any on-line price quote by 5%. I felt comfortable ordering from them, because they are listed on the manufacturer's website as an authorized retailer. The lowest quote I was able to find online for my dress was $499, so I ended up buying the dress for $475 with no tax because I live outside of NY. Also, there was no shipping cost, per my original on-line quote from another retailer.

                RK bridal was quick to reply and confirm my order. I ordered the dress a few weeks ago and it should be here by the beginning of February (assuming all goes well). :)


                Here is a link to my dress:

                      yeah, there is another site - I think it's bridecouture.com that sells sample gowns for cheaper. And of course J Crew, H&M, Nordstrom, Saks & NM all carry bridal too. Just think outside of the box a little!
