When I did some research on overseas dress makers, the most consistently positively reviewed shop/individual I found was Jeff Liu. You can find him on eBay by searching for his shop, April Bridal. His dresses tend to range in price from $50-$200, plus shipping (from China, usually $50-60? maybe?). I do NOT know what his fabrics are like though – I’ve actually tried to ask here on the ‘bee, but without much response.

I can’t speak for any others, reviews tend to be pretty mixed.

If you’re leary of going overseas, consider putting in an alchemy request on Etsy – that’s what I’m doing for my dress (my budget is about the same as yours) – that way you can specify the material. Something about speaking the same language makes me feel more at ease. 🙂

If you have a dress in mind from a designer/company, I recommend checking with Netbride.com to see if they carry it.  I ordered my dress from them–it was less expensive than many other places, arrived a month early (and 3 or 4 months earlier than the bridal shop told me I could get it), and was exactly the dress I was expecting, tags and all.

I ordered my dress through Netbrides and got about 20% off what the shops around here were advertising.  It’s the legit label, and the company does have a brick & mortar store.  If you do a WB search, you’ll see tons of great reviews.

J-Crew has wedding gown selections, and I feel like if you like their styles, it would be a safe bet that you will be getting exactly what you order.

I went through (Jeff Liu) AKA Aprils Bridal, like the above poster, I read such great reviews about him.

I’m not sure how something in chiffon would turn out. But my dress was tafetta. I was more concerned with the style of the dress vs. having silk or some other type of material, tafetta was fine with me. AND, my dress was only $188!!!!
