I would start looking at dresses in person first.  I fell in love with a lot of dresses in pictures but they looked horrible on me.

For 2k you can have the dress of your dreams made.  Check out Wedding Dress Fantasy.  They are awesome.  I am a plus size bride and don’t have the option to go and try on dress at a store.  I was devastaed.  I was referred to them by a friend who had the dame problem.  You have one on one contact with the dress designer directly.  Good luck!

I spent a LOT of time stalking dresses on sites like preownedweddingdresses.com but found that many, many brides aren’t willing to budge on price because they’re emotionally attached to their gowns. You should also factor in the cost of alterations. Depending on how much you need and where you live, these could run hundreds of dollars.

You should check out Church Street Bridal or the “Sample Gown Gold Mine” string in the Classifieds. I nabbed a beautiful Christos gown for $450 plus shipping – quite a bit less than the $7000 my mom was willing pay when I tried the same dress on in a bridal shop 🙂 Many of their gowns come from Kleinfeld (think Jim Hjelm, Anne Barge, Caroline Herrera, Monique Lhuilier, etc) and all proceeds benefit the YWCA. You can email the staff a style number or photos, and they’ll let you know if they have it in stock or anything similar.

Best of luck!!
