OP, if you haven’t already gotten a dress, I would recommend that you check out Brides Against Breast Cancer. They are based in Florida, and I know they have a bunch of events down there in the next several months. Some of their gowns are pre-owned (donated by individuals), some are brand new (donated by designers, shops, etc.) and you can get a really good deal on something fantastic.
I wouldn’t worry about “gown karma” from a gown that was a BABC donation. The way I see it, any woman with the generosity of spirit to donate her wedding gown to a cause like theirs will be sending only good vibes along with the dress!
