Davids has some great stuff in your price range, also, most dresses that have a train can have it cut off.  I originally didn’t want a train and had the consultants fold the dres under so I could see what it would look like without a train.

Here is a GREAT website to check, you can’t try them on, but you can try on the styles at other stores to see if the style suits you.  I have bought several formals from them and their customer service is great.

dress number 1 for sure!! i using to work for a bridal boutique and i im telling you from personal experience when a consultant hears you want a dress under $500 plus alterations they ar going to automatically send you over ot clearence. i would def look at sample sizes and consider increasing your budget a little  more…maybe to $700.

You look amazing in dress #1!!!

They look lovely. If you are feeling like a road trip there is a Bridal ‘n Tux in Dayton, Ohio. They are a retail establishment for romanticgowns.com. They have tons of stuff in your price range.

well, for under $500 — WOW!  nice work!  i am sorry it was disappointing…  i think we all want to feel pampered and waited on during something as momentous as trying on wedding gowns!

as for the dresses — i think #1 is beautiful — it is really ethereal / grecian / goddess looking….  i also like the one sholder one…  it is very sophisticated looking.

J. Crew has a few nice wedding dresses for less than $500.

You don’t sound thrilled about #1. Keep looking, you’ll def find something in your price range. Even try Bloomingdales and Lord and Taylor if you know you don’t want a train. Plus then they always have a coupon out especially if you have their card. 

Check out this Sue Wong on sale for $125 http://www1.bloomingdales.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=540940&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results it looks a little similar to the styles you’ve got there.

I think #1 looks beautiful on you! If those aren’t what you’re looking for, keep looking, though. David’s Bridal should have some in your price range. Or you could look at preownedweddingdresses.com or oncewed.com (those are nice if there’s a specific dress you love but can’t afford new)

That first dress is gorgeouuuuuuus! It reminds me of a greecian goddess, which is what I wanted to go with at first but didn’t. Love it on you!!
