I got my dress for $600 from David’s Bridal. It’s simple, but pretty. It may not be exactly what you’re asking for, but I will share a picture anyway.

@minted:  Aw, thanks 🙂 Not feeling it in this photo though. It was hot and crowded in the salon that day.

not sure if this is the type of thing you’re looking for, but my dress was only $750 from David’s Bridal.

Mine was Casablanca, which usually has dresses in the $1100-$1400 price range. Mine was I believe $1200 before add-ons, fees, and alterations. I also looked at Maggie Sottero, Allure, and a number of other designers with dresses at about the same price point.

I added the belt, so here is what it would look like without:

@minted: i tried on that Duchess dress that you posted. i ended up with a different style but still in the price range you mentioned. Mine is the Augusta Jones Marilyn that I’m altering to a sweetheart neckline. I’m so madly in love with it.

I tried the BHLDN Isolde dress: http://www.bhldn.com/shop-the-bride-wedding-dresses/isolde-gown/productoptionids/fbcaeb8b-b90b-4e9a-9313-32da085940dd, but I’m a 32DDD and ended up walking away from it wishing my ladies were smaller because it really is spectacular.

in terms of ready-to-wear, I was also was in love with JCrew’s Carenna gown: http://www.jcrew.com/wedding/Wedding_Bride/gowns/PRDOVR~47555/47555.jsp’ defer=’defer

good luck!

I love the Pronovias Pergola.  I think it is around $2000. If you google it you’ll find stunning pictures of real brides 🙂

Have you considered preowned? I bought my lazaro for $1600 (originally around 5-6k I think). Its in near perfect condition (Only the bustle needs to be fixed) and I needed no alterations.

J. Crew has beautiful and simple dresses in that price range that would be ready to wear.
