I bought mine online from igigi.com. It’s a plus size store, but I don’t know if you’re plus sized. It came to a little over $500, with a coupon code I found.

@lolot:  great! Thank you so much for the info. I still have time, so I’ll just be sure to keep an eye out for it and hopefully they’ll bring it back again! I would love to get this dress ๐Ÿ™‚

I got mine for $600 off kijiji, but I didn’t have to alter it at all (maybe later on). 

Try preownedweddingdresses.com, stillwhite.com or oncewed.com    Lots of great, preowned dresses.  Most are for pick up, so if you (and possibly a friend) are willing to meet with the seller, it’s a great deal.  Also you can narrow it down to your size/make/style/etc.

@Grossern:  You’re very welcome ๐Ÿ™‚  Just FYI, are you very tall?  That link I posted shows the dress weirdly short (IMO) on the model.  I’m 5’5″, wore 1″ wedges, and ordered a size either 4 or 6 and the length was great.  If I were taller or wanted to wear taller heels, though, it would have been weird.  So if you’re one of those tall thin model types, beware!

I would recommend browsing Tradesy and other preowned wedding dress sites, there are a lot of new/sample dresses at great prices. I just bought a dress for $50! I’m hoping it works out, here’s a pic on the model: 

Coincidentally, this dress is also sold new on the Dessy website where they have a selection of dresses that are both fairly priced and available to purchase and return (if it doesn’t work out), here’s a link:

@lolot:  haha, thank you for the warning, but no, I am not one of those “tall thin model types” ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m actually only about 5’2″ and would also probably order about a size 4…so when I saw it on you and thought it looked so beautiful, I thought it was just the look I wanted! I’ll be careful to not pick shoes with too high of a heel though. The 1″ wedges would probably be a perfect look, since we also want to get married outside near the beach.

My dress was slightly over $500 from david’s bridal.. just don’t forget about alterations. My alterations are actually going to cost more than my dress.
