I am trying to stay within my budget and I just can not justify spending over 1000 dollars for a dress. I was wondering if any Bees could show me their dresses and tell me how much they paid for them!
I am going wedding dress shopping tomorrow and I am going to a family owned store who has designers like Casablanca, Allure and Essence of Austrailia. I wouldn’t mind going to Davids Bridal but my mom wants me to have the “bridal expierience.”

you should def see if they have some Mori Lee dresses there. Most of her dresses are way under 1000 and so beautiful!

My mom has all the photos, but my Mori Lee dress was only like $600. I tried on some Essence of Australia gowns that were really nice too, just not “the one”. And I hated David’s Bridal lol.

@LadyBear: Did you have a good experience? Someone told me the fabric isn’t the best but that is where I want to go (:

Try going to a warehouse type store. These stores purchase sample dresses from other bridal stores that go out of business. I got a Pronovias dress for $450! It’s last years style but who would even know / care about that. The place I went to was called Perfect Fit and was located in Michigan. I am not sure if it is a chain or not, but I am sure they have similar stores near you.

My DB dress was only $450 as well. My consultant asked my budget and I wasn’t sure what to say. Then she told me their most expensive dress was $1100, so I said “Anything in the store”. LOL.

$599 for a sample. I haven’t had alterations done yet, but that and the bustling should only add another $150. It’s Alfred Sung. Yay sample sales!!! There’s way more fullness normally- it had been in a bag for 3 months.
