Have you tried a consignment store?  I’ve had much better luck at finding inexpensive dresses that are nice at consignment stores than thrift stores.  Also, check the sale racks!  I found a $135 dress for $15.00 at Steinmart on sale that I am seriously considering wearing to my rehearsal dinner.  There are discount stores that have nice stuff for cheap, you just have to be willing to look!

If money was the problem, it may have been wise to mention it when she asked you to participate. I think the right thing to do at this point to buy  an outfit for the wedding put it on credit. Macy’s is having a great sale right now, here are some suggestions that are affordably priced and then just rush the shipping.

Calvin Klein Dress (avail in black only) $42.30 

London Times Dress (black) $61.31 

Unlisted by Kenneth Cole $27

Chinese Laundry $23

Good Luck

I’m not sure where you live, but Ross always has prom dresses that aren’t really prom-y on the cheap.  I’m sure Marshall’s and TJ Maxx have the same.  Also, I’ve bought amazing formal dresses from department stores on clearance for about $15 (haha, sounds like a trend!).  Just something to try … best of luck!
