    Just wondering how much you paid for your TTD dress for those of you that chose to get a second gown?

    I'm on the fence. On the one hand, I don't much care if my wedding gown is "ruined". But on the other, I'm thinking that getting a second gown is a valid excuse to be able to wear TWO dresses that I really like instead of having to just pick one, ya know?

    So, I kind of decided to go ahead and get a second dress, if I could find it cheap so I started browsing the Ebay manufacturers....I figure if it isn't perfect, so what, its the TTD dress. BUT, the more I looked the more I found some gowns that I sorta liked, but the ones that I REALLY liked are still several hundred bucks. Figures. I never pick the cheap stuff even when I'm trying dammit. SO, I guess the real question is for those of you on a budget more or less who got a second dress, how much did you pay for it? I see some that are pretty..beautiful in fact, that you can get for under $200. But the one isn't one of them.

      I decided not to get a second one, but I was on White House Black Market's site today and they have some nice wedding-y dresses for cheap:

          I just bought a TTD gown from chic bridal for $200. Chic Bridal Silk Collection You might also want to look at bestbridalprices.com and choose a white bridesmaid dress.

            I have a whole TTD saga. I got 2 dresses on Ebay (total about $100) but neither was really right so I ended up buying a dress from DB for $99 and then having the straps taken up or another $30 so total $129, and I'm selling the other 2 dresses.

            Here's the online/super affordable DB line:

              I paid $60 at Macy's for a beautiful white dress on clearance. I don't know if they still will have summer-y dresses there or not, but there were quite a few white ones to choose from.

                I found mine on eBay (same size and designer as my real WD) and I got it for $76!! No alterations necessary (I could get it taken in a bit, but figure no sense spending the extra money for the TTD ... especially when you won't be able to tell in the pics!

                  i got one for $99 - but the only reason i got a 2nd dress was because i didn't want my "real" dress to get trashed, since the plan is to sell it. i really wanted to do my TTD pics in my real dress, since i think that would make them more "special" - i think you should use your real dress!

                    I'm not doing TTD, but try looking on Nordstrom.com: Designer Collections and Top Apparel, Shoe and Beauty Brands in their wedding section. They have a lot of cute inexpensive dresses. Also, try J.Crew - Cashmere, sweaters, dresses, children's clothing & gift cards, BananaRepublic.com: Modern Apparel, Handbags, Shoes, and Accessories, even (who would have thought!) Welcome to Target!
