This was the first dress I bought from Davids Bridal which I ultimately changed, but it was on sale for $350.  The original price is $399.  #WG9871

My dress was originally $400, but I got a coupon at a bridal show for $125 off, so it was $275

Ours were $450 each, so just over your limit.  However, we had a special challenge in trying to get two that would complement each other.

I don’t have pics of me in my dress, but I got it for $76 on ebay, plus shipping of $30.  It came with the dress, veil, bra, hair comb, and crinoline, all new with tags from David’s Bridal.  I sold the veil and bra for $74 after I got the package.  So, total cost of the dress up to this point: $32 (I haven’t had alterations done yet)… 🙂   My dress is a current style at DB selling for $599  (on sale) and all the other stuff was new with tags too and would have cost me $400 on top of the dress price had I bought it there.

I STRONGLY recommend watching ebay for deals.  Find dresses you like, try on in person, then search ebay and set up a “saved search” to get daily notifications.

Anyway here is my dress:

Since I got such a good deal, I plan on altering it to a sweetheart neckline and I’ll be getting a double French bustle, and buying a fluffier petticoat…even after all that:  a STEAL! 🙂

Heya, I picked up my Casablanca 1900 for $300, but I’m iffy…I’m not sure I suit it enough to pull it off so I’m still on the hunt, but it’s my backup 🙂

These are terrible pics but they were both $99.  I am going to have to get some better ones.  One is my reception dress, tea length, and the other I have as my TTD dress (I don’t want to ruin by beautiful dress).

$406 during an annual sale at a local bridal shop. It was a floor sample, but you’d have thought it was literally brand new. When you turned out the bottom of the skirt, it had no dirt!

$250 off ebay, new with tags!

Alterations will cost me about $50 (according to my seamstress’s estimate)

@j.grossman13: $20?! That dress is incredible! The sleeves are to die for. Nice work.
