What I would do if I were you is to try some real dresses to understand what styles suit you well and then think of ordering it custom made, if you unable to get it locally within your budget. 

Have a look at this topic, from what I see, this company provides high quality dresses at a reasonable price: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/jasmines-bridal-shop-china-dresses-part-iv

I would look at J. Crew, they have some options in that price range and are very nice quality. Some of the J.Crew stores actually have the wedding dresses to try on. Here are a few under $500:

 

 

This one is $575:

Have you tried vintage on Etsy or eBay? I know some of them can get quite pricey, but I’m sure you could find a lovely vintage gown that’s within $500.

Otherwise, I found some options.

Notte by Marchesa. The first dress is $365, the second dress is $484, the third is $418. All here.

See if there’s a Brides Against Breast Cancer event coming up in  your area any time soon? You can see what they have in your size range, their gowns are very affordable, and the money you spend goes to support programs for cancer patients and their families.

Also this Tadashi Soutache Embroidery gown is beautiful, I see a lot this kind of detail on dresses from the 1950s. It’s $440. You have great arms/shoulders and this would really feminine on.
