@stephee:  So I was the queen of dresses.  I ended up with FIVE!  They were all affordable and I did resell all but one. 




The one I wore on my wedding day was a Casablanca from a real bridal shop.  It was a sample gown, half off, fit perfectly, and I took it home that day.  The others were all online purchases (all new with tags, but HUGE deals, no returns).




So you could try a bridal shop – see what they have in stock.


If you have a David’s Bridal you could take one home the same day.


I you have a Dillards or Macy’s or Nordstroms, they have gowns (more like evening gowns).


If you go the online route, I highly recommend using a store that has returns.




For online, I’d suggest


Nordstroms  http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/bridal-gowns?origin=leftnav


Ruche Bridal  http://shopruche.com/bridal-1/bridal-dresses.html

I bought my dress directly off the peg, and I bloody love it! I’d been hunting high and wide for the ‘right’ elopement dress and finally found one at Coast only a few weeks ago. I dont know how useful this is is to you as this is a uk store, but their dresses are so much more beautiful in real life!
