I think Maggie Sottero gowns are often made of silk chiffon.  My dress is very light — it is the Colby gown.  If it is polyester, no one I know could tell — the chiffon is very light and delicate. I paid under $700 for my dress.

Also look for sample sales from your local bridal boutiques. I got a silk gown for $800 because it was a sample.

Ditto, MissRuffles. I also bought a designer silk gown for $800 as a store sample. Some samples show some wear, but the store I got mine from turn their samples over pretty quickly. My dress looked brand new.

You should also check with dress designers about getting a custom gown. When you add the cost of alterations, I think the cost is about the same.
