    I personally don’t see the point in spending thousands on a dress you’ll only be wearing for a few hours but to each their own. (I am an adventurer and much rather invest that extra cash towards an exotic honey moon but everyone has their own preferences!) Accordingly, I dug high and low before finding 2 hidden gems / underrated wedding gown designers…<br /><br />If you’re looking for beautiful, high quality yet affordable dresses (most under $1,000 with a few between $1,000 – $1,500) stick to Mori Lee and Maggie Sottero. Both have some of the nicest styles I’ve seen and great quality dresses. I even went to the infamous Kleinfeld’s in NYC to try on dresses and humor my bridesmaids but the $3,000-$5,000 dresses I tried on there were worse quality than my $798 Maggie Sottero and did not have the intricate details/bling of the ML or MS dresses I tried on.<br /><br /><br />

    Btw, I see people telling you about Maggie but her dresses weigh a ton.  You’ll see when you start to try them on.  My mom had Mori lee MOB dress and they are exquisite.  My sis had an Alfred Angelo and it was about the same cost as mine with alterations about 1500.
