You’re going to have to define "not super high end."  Amy Kushel Bride probably qualifies.  I’d also recommend the salon I used, Alexandra Salon.  GL!

I want to ask specifically what’s your price range. SF prices can be a bit different than other places. Personally, I am getting my dress at Amy Kuschel- I love it there. Prices range probably from 2k to 5k. If you are looking in the 3 to 5k range- I’d suggest both Bridal Galleria and Haute Bride. Saks, Jin Wang and Morrison are at the high end of that range too (I think).

Oh, and if you are around a sample size- go to Glamour Closet. There really aren’t great places in the City for ‘budget’ gowns. Oh, and I wouldn’t recommend Novella (again, unless you are more petite).

Definitely check out Atelier des Modistes (Russian Hill).  Its a couture shop (like Amy Kuschel).  I’m getting my dress there…and I guarantee her styles are totally different than anything you’ve seen.  It might not be your style, but worth a look if even just for the amazing accessories.  FYI, Suzanne starts around $2K.

Try Novella Bridal on Maiden Lane. They have Pronovias and Jasmine, with prices between $1K-2K.

I tried on a dress there for $1400.

Also the Bridal Galleria at Embarcadero 3, they have a range of prices and generally have trunk shows going on.

Hope that helps!

I second Bridal Galleria – they had a Marisa trunk show while I was there. Marisa gowns are both glamerous and affordable (in the 1-2.5K range).

 Oh and make sure you take some time out for lunch! Nothing more exhausting than hopping in and out of wedding gowns. We did oysters and champange.

I went to Haute Bride, Glamour Closet, Bridal Galleria, and a few others that I can’t remember… I wish I had made it to Amy Kuschel, but my schedule wouldn’t permit.  Ultimately I found my dress in Portland, after shopping in 4 different cities in 3 different states.  Good luck with SF!
