I think I’ve read that it averages to around $1000 USD without alterations.

Careful with the pricing in NZ though.  Unless you order it online from the States, it’s unlikely you’ll find it for that price in NZ.  I’ve been shopping back and forth between countries (I’m American, living in Melbourne, and marrying a Kiwi) and it’s SO much more expensive down here.  What city are you near?  Might be easiest to check where you can get it and give a call.  Trying on dresses most places costs $50 there (I tried on in Wellington but Auckland is the same) and then that goes towards the dress if you buy from that store.

I haven’t done much research on the different designers (I’m planning on buying my dress when I’m home at Christmas) but I’d imagine you could find just about anything in/around LA.  It might be a bit overwhelming though so it would be good to do some research online ahead of time and make the appointments in advance so you can make sure you’re able to get in where you want in the limited time you’re there.  Plus it’s free to try on dresses back home, which is a nice bonus.

Lucky you with being able to fly like that.  It’s worth checking the rpricing on both sides, since sometimes things catch me by surprise and are cheaper here – mostly cheaper in the States though.  And plenty of people ffly with their wedding dresses.  You would just want to arrange to bring it as a carry-on.  Most airlines are pretty understanding of that, from what I hear.
