Mine isn’t lace, but I bought the sample off the rack, and paid $700 taxes included. Sticker price was $1100, got a large discount for buying the sample. Please excuse the way I look in this picture!

Boom! My dress was $575. My second favorite dress was the same shape, but was duponi silk (by Justin Alexander) and was $1650. I kept looking because I really wanted organza or tulle and found this Mori Lee Blu style (4808) – it’s organza and I loved it before I knew how inexpensive it was. My budget was $1200, but I was willing to go to 2k – I was SHOCKED to spend so little! It comes with a beaded/sparkly sash and a flower pin, but I’m planning on wearing a simple black grosgrain sash. FWIW, my style tends to be more classic/simple – I wanted no lace and no bling, but still most of the dresses I looked at were 1k+. A consultant told me that simple dresses tend to be made out of more luxe fabrics, bringing the price up.

That’s without the crenolyn though, if you add one of those slips it looks more like the trumpet it’s listes as. I plan to get a rather large slip to make it look more like a mermaid.

What I paid for my Allure 8764 is just out of your price range; it was around $900 before tax, just over $1000 after tax.  My alterations are going to be $275, so $1275 after it’s all said and done.

With such a tight budget, if you want lace, I really recommend finding a sample sale or trunk show where you can get a discount.
