Is there a bridal consignment store anywhere around you?

I would search for dresses that aren’t marketed as bridal –that tends to add a large premium onto the cost of a dress.

I’ve seen really pretty white dresses at outlet shops and in the mall. I would search around and see what you can find– it’s summer time, so there should be lots of white, pretty dresses out.

Consignment shops are also a great suggestion!

Good luck!

I got the “dress of my dreams” on craigslist.  I didn’t expect to find it there.  I wouldn’t say it was cheap but did see nice dresses for $100.

Davids does have some on sale for around $149. Also you could check out places like mod cloth, or ordering from china. Also you could order a bridesmaid dress in ivory.

You could try Modcloth

Most dresses marketed as “wedding” or “bridal” will be above your price point. You could also look at white bridesmaid dresses they tend to be pretty reasonable especially if you want a long dress.

Prom season is over.  We found some really pretty white gowns marked way down at Dillards and Macys.  Most were like 75 – 80% off.

David’s Bridal is having their $99 sale right now in stores and online. I went tonight and found a beautiful $500 dress for $99 tonight!! I’m very excited and loved it more than all the regular prices dresses I tried on!
