My $670 dress is Alfred Angelo 2019.  It glows…  Gold beading on ivory organza.  Flowers, drop waist, laced back, it makes me look like something other than a dwarf…

I’d say google wedding dress stores in the DC area.  Look for ones conveniently located for you.  Read the reviews.  (I’m biting my nails at the moment because the place I bought from has some awful reviews… not as bad as some, though.  Friends dragged me in there, and wouldn’t let me go back to the mediocre but acceptable dress at the first stop.)  Visit the websites of the ones that aren’t scary.  See which ones are in your price range.  Choose three.  Go.  Have an idea of what you like, but stay flexible (I HATE satin and taffeta, sweetheart necks, and pick-ups.  I didn’t want ivory or ruching, but those were both features of the dress I chose.)

I wish you could come shop in the Atlanta area, we have a huge selection around $1000. Look at Allure & Casablanca Bridal. Best of luck!
