I’m in kind of a rut, even with the wedding being so far away. My man said he would rather spend lots of money on a dress and not as much on a ring (we’re engaged with my mother’s engagement ring until he can buy me one of my own) because he wants me to be in the most beautiful dress he’s ever seen. Which is kind of nerve wracking because what will he think is the most beautiful? He wants me to feel beautiful in THE dress that I’ve always wanted, but I don’t really have one that I’ve always wanted. My thing is that we have a David’s Bridal that sells beautiful dresses for cheap. Here’s some examples :
This last one is the dress that my friend recently got married in, and she got a great deal! Less than 500! I know for sure I could find something at this store.
But, there are dresses that are more expensive that I know I would love!
Both of these last dresses are by a wedding dress company called Melissa Sweet. I really like her stuff, but it’s in the thousands.

He will think you are beautiful no matter what! Wear the dress that you love. But I guess this gives you the chance to try on all ranges of dresses and buy the one simply for the fact that you love it.

Your wedding is pretty far off. You may find something in the next two years that you absolutely adore and love. I understand where you’re coming from though. Our wedding date isn’t until Oct. 13, 2012, but I’ve already found my dream dress. It’s killing me not to go and try it on and start looking at others. =) But I wish you luck. I’m sure you’ll look stunning in whichever dress you choose.

Have you ever gone to the website recycled bride? You can find gorgeous couture dresses for less than what these women bought them for AND already altered. I mean you may need a little alterations to fit your body like a glove but not much if you can get a dress close to your dress size.
I would check it out especially if you want something stunning this way you can avoid David’s bridal (which isn’t bad by any means), but if you’re looking for the WOW factor I would go with something a little more couture. I hope that helps and you can haggle with the seller too.
Also, research with your fiance and see what he thinks looks stunning so this way you can get an idea of what he likes AND what you likes, but ultimately it is your decision because you are the one that has to wear it, but if he likes something about a particular dress you may be able to accessorize the dress that you like accordingly. You can do almost ANYTHING these days with accessories. 🙂 you can make a not so expensive dress look AMAZING!
Good luck!!!!!! Let us know what you go with and we want to see pictures!
