Nicole Miller has a simple gown for about $600, but it is not in organza. I’m not sure if I can think of any other bridal designers besides the ones you mentioned, but you can try looking at white or ivory bridesmaids dresses, or white evening gowns from non bridal designers such as BCBG.

My gown isn’t sparkly, but has a bit of a sheen to it. It is a custom made white Yowying from Wai-Ching, and it cost me $630. My grandmother wants to attack it with beading.

Maggie Sottero has beautiful gowns for under $1k.  I ordered "Sonya" for $428 from Bridalgown.net after I tried it on in a bridal salon.  They wanted $589.  I think you could find something very simple made from organza in her line.  And most of her dresses are corset back, which I love!  Good luck!

Oh, wow, everywhere. Go check out http://www.houseofbrides.com and just take a look at a few gowns from each designer to see what each designer’s price range is. Then you’ll have an idea of what to look for in the stores.

My gown was by Mon Cheri and it was under $1K. Casablanca has beautiful gowns for that price range, too.

My dress is by Casablanca and I paid 720 for it.  The fabric could be a little nicer but it definitely doesn’t look cheap like some of the other inexpensive dresses I tried on.  The gown originally had a lot of sequins and beading around the bottom but I loved the lace trim on it’s own so I asked if they could be taken off and it wasn’t a problem.  The even added an overskirt of organza with the lace attached because I wanted to dress to seem lighter.  I was a little nervous how all the changes were going to come out but it’s beautiful.

I second Nicole Miller. She has several styles under $1000, but I’m not sure if any of the dresses are in organza

I’d also recommend checking out Jenny Yoo’s bridal alternatives.  The gowns are simple, but she has some in organza and quality is good.

You should look at the "desination" collections of gown designers.  Those are the ones that usually come w/ Chiffon or Organza material.  I have seen some of these gorgeous destination gowns for even under $200.  Sorry I forgot the maker, I think it could be Besoie or something like that.

You could also check out Impressions. They have some organza gowns with pretty sparkles 🙂

I second the Jenny Yoo dresses. Any of her bridesmaid dresses come in white or ivory as well. And her dresses are really well made.

Go to any bridal store that carries Casablanca/Mon Cheri and you’ll find others.  There are tons of designers that are under $1,000 or have certain dresses right around $1,000.  Just off the top of my head, Maggie Sottero, Jasmine, Sottero & Midgeley, Mori Lee, Allure, Essense of Australia, Moonlight Bridal, Mary’s.

Lots of wedding dress design companies have "destination" gowns and they are usually quite a bit less price wise. They also tend to be simpler and lighter in silhouette. I was looking for a dress under $600 and I had many choices at some of my local bridal salons.

If you look online at places like the knot, keep track of designers you like and then check their own designer websites to see if they’ve got destination or informal gowns.

I had a simple yet elegant Casablanca gown also.  It was $750 I think.  I don’t know much about the different materials they offer…..

My gown is an Alfred Angelo and with tax it is just under $600.  It doesn’t have any sparkle, but i personally plan on adding sparkle elsewhere, as in my shoes, hair, veil, etc.

Let me know if you’d like to see photos the stock photo on their site doesn’t do it justice.
