There’s a Jessica McClintock outlet store somewhere out there….that might be a good choice!

I went to Jinny’s Bridal in HB and they had a lot of dresses for under $1000. I would also look at La Soie in Tustin

I don’t know about places, but I do know that my dress designer, Anjolique, is very affordable! My dress was $850 but there are some under $800 I’m sure!

The Jessica Mcclintock Outlet is in Montclair! You can find dresses there for under $200 if your willing to just dig in and look. 

I got my dress from Alfred Angelo for $800 when it was originally $1100. You have to wait until they have a sale though (they have one about once a month)

Actually every nearly bridal store in the OC that you go to will have inexpensive dresses(except Mon Amie and the White Dress). I’ve been to the following stores in the OC: (I put in order of the nicest people & most affordable)

Alfred Angelo, Brea

The Dresser, Fullerton 

Ferndales, Orange

Mariposa Boutique, Anaheim

Mary Me Bridal, Orange

The Wedding Day in Fountain Valley

Also, if you are willing to look in Downtown Santa Ana on Fourth street there are a ton of bridal shops. Also downtown LA at the garment district if your willing to brave the crowds!  Good luck and have fun!

Do you want to buy a dress or rent a wedding dress because there are THOUSANDS of wedding dresses you can either rent or buy within your budget off Las Tunas Rd. in Temple City, LA.  You can bargain for the price you want and they were willing to give me a wedding dress off the rack for $600 or $300 to rent.  I’d look into it.  Good luck!

Look for sample sales at the larger stores like Mon Amie in Costa Mesa. They have the best selection of high quality gowns, and when they have sample sale, the prices are very affordable!!  Otherwise, chains like David’s Bridal would have dresses under $800 as well.

I just went to Jaclyn’s Bridal in Santa Ana… the consultants are SUPER nice and I was this close to purchasing a gown there.  But I had to hold back and think about it some more, lol I’m so indecisive!  Anyway, they’re nice there, and they have a good selection of dresses (mostly from Casablanca, Watters, Pronovias).  They also have allllll the accessories your heart may desire– veils, brooches, jewelry galore!  Good luck!

I dont know about where for you but I highly recommend Casablanca for afforable and high quality. I oredered my dress completely customized (from teh changed neckline to the length so I didnt have to hem) for about $700.  They were so smooth to work with and the dress was very well made. You can customize their dresses in almost any way.  This bodice with THAT lace and THIS skirt, but change it to THAT neckline. All good.
