Try the Jessica McClintock outlet… they have several racks of dresses.  They’re definitely nothing fancy, and they have all sizes. 

The weekend I went (Memorial Day Weekend) they had ALL wedding gowns marked down to 75 dollars.  It may not be the case when you go, but they’re in the $400 price range.  Just budget a bit for alterations.

And be prepared, the fitting room is a communal room… and if you want to take pictures,  you have to be a ninja about it.  Use something without a flash.  And hide the camera fast.

salad,

Consider looking into bridesmaid dresses. Even the nicest ones will run under $400. They are not poofy at all and are quite simple. 🙂

 Also, check out some Casablanca dresses. They’re under the $1000 mark. Also check eBaY and preownedweddingdresses.com .

On yelp I read that Jennifer Croll has Nicole Miller wedding dresses that are reasonably priced, but I haven’t been there personally to try them on.  Could be a potential option: http://www.jennifercroll.com/brides.html

I got my dress at L’Ezu on Steiner, and I love the girl who owns it, but it was more than you want to pay ($2500).

I second the Jessica McClintock outlet in Potero Hill!  That’s where I found my dress…for $72.68 including taxes! Best part?  It’s a simplified version of the dress I’d always dreamed of and only needed one tiny tuck at the portrait sleeve.  It is hit or miss though. Been back twice for my bridesmaids and nothing nothing nothing!

Good luck!

i found my dress through craigslist – monique lhuillier for $700!

try oncewed.com.

i also visited a shop (run out of the owner’s home at the time – she was in the middle of relocating, i think) called cherished wedding gowns by consignment in pleasont hill. the number is 925-280-0128. my friend bought her lhuillier gown there for $600.

Trudy’s and Bay Area Bridal have lots of dresses under $1000 that are great!  You also might try buying it online at http://www.bestbridalprices.com or Pearl’s Place, or netbride.  I would also try out craigslist.  Good luck!

i would recommend finding a dress you love first (style wise), whether it be an expensive label or not, and then getting it used because you can find amazing deals. There are many websites where you can find pre owned dresses at a fraction of the cost. My friend bought her pronovias dress for 650.00, and the person through in the matching veil for free, and then she sold it again so she got all her money back.

I would love for you to give my shop a try.  I have quire a few samples on sale and all of my regular dresses are considered inexpensive.  Plus I buy in a unique way so I do not have the same dresses as other stores.

Check out my website it only has a sampling of what I have but maybe you will see something you like.

Ebay ebay ebay! I found a $5000 dress for $100. And another $1000 one for $30. Takes some digging, but it can be done.

i looked at the jessica McClintoc outlet, they had cheap less than 100 dollar dress, but i didn’t like any of them.  their website has some wedding dresses that looks nice for around 300ish…
