Hi I just found this site and have been reading forums now for over 2 hours. I am getting married in Cancun at the Moon Palace Resort 3/28/15. I have yet to purchase my dress. I honestly am so stressed about it. I want a dress that will travel well and isn't over priced. My budget is about $1,000total including alterations. Any suggestions on designers. I have looked at Alfred Angelo and tried designers such as Maggie Sottero. HELP I am really running out of time.

@robertandreneesayido I waited for awhile before I even looked for a dress. I got engaged about 5 months ago and just ordered my dress last week for my April wedding.

 

Have you tried looking into sample sales or a bridal outlet that would allow you to purchase basically off the rack with minor alterations? There are also several online sites where brides sell their dress at discounted prices. Or are you specifically looking for new? Perhaps Allure, Sophia Tolli, Mikaella, Essence of Australia. Good luck

Also try David's Bridal if you have one near you. My new dress (not off rack but ordered in) was $500. All it needs is a hem and bustle! Lots there for well under $1000.

you've gotten great suggestions for budget-friendly dresses! 

 

I'd also suggest not stressing terribly over whether or not it will travel well. The biggest consideration is whether you are willing to carry it with you through the airports and on a plane. If a ball gown with a super full skirt is more than you want to manage, consider a different silhouette. Destination brides have worn all silhouettes and it's all perfectly appropriate - I've seen huge ball gowns, a-lines, mermaid/trumpet style, and what most people think of as a destination wedding dress (slim column, chiffon or flowy material). Find a dress that you love, and go from there. 

 

Most of the resorts are used to steaming wedding gowns, so even if it arrives with a few wrinkles it will be ok.

Lol - the rule here is that you have to post pics so everyone can see!! (hint hint) I love the Mori Lee designs. They're just gorgeous! So far my favourites are David Tutera's designs for Mon Cheri. But a decision will be tough.....


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
