I’d keep looking, if it’s not a traditional wedding you can just look for cocktail dresses and you should be able to find a good one for less than 350 dollars!

I agree with PP, instead of looking for wedding gowns, look for cocktail dresses or even things more directed at bridesmaids.  Something like that in the right colour can still look extremely bridal.

I was origianally looking for a tee-length dress and most bridal shops I went to had about 2 per store…  dissapointing!  Have you looked online?  Normally I would be worried about getting something online but if you know exactly what you are looking for I would go for it!

Have you looked online at The Limited? They are having a crazy sale on all their wedding dresses, I think someone posted on here they she got hers, with shoes and earrings, for $38 (I think she used an online coupon to take $25 a $50 purchase?) Would be worth looking into for so little money! Even if it’s not great as a wedding dress, can be a fun going-out dress later on??

The Limited is having a great sale right now, definitely worht checking out.

I bought my backyard wedding dress from White House Black Market on sale for $60.  Check out non traditional places, you will find something great ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought I would share this link with you. 


This is en Etsy Seller.  I love her dresses, and am going to buy one for myself, for no special reason, just because I can.

She makes those convertible wrap dresses, in several colours and lengths and with Fantastic prices.  I love how she wraps them with sweetheart necklines like this one below.  And the beauty of it is that you can play with it until you find a style you really like.

Stick to your budget!  PPs are right.  Look for cocktail dresses not wedding dresses.  I like Nordstrom’s.  They have dresses at different price points.  Here is once close to your budget. $158. 


If you have a Nordstrom’s Rack in/near your town I suggest you go there.  I got my wedding dress (actually a cocktail dress) there significantly marked down to $75!

Hey! Like other bees have mentioned, Etsy is a great place to find great value items!

I’ve just had a quick search and they are an array of designs and colours available ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s one of the dresses which I thought looked great for $150 ^.^

Here’s another dress for $166!

CHECK MODCLOTH!!!!!!!! These are some of the short white dresses I’ve been thinking about from them…I’ve ordered from them before and had excellent results. Dresses are $50-$200.



Otherwise they have hundreds of dresses to look through!
