$98 for my baby! Alteration did cost a bit more because of the bustle but oh well! It was brand new and never been worn before. Ah, sample sales.

Since it is impossible to see the detailing of the bodice any other way, here is a close-up of all the gorgeous lace a beading

There are dresses at all price ranges… I ordered one that was $35. Now if you are looking for a custom big-name designer dress you may have trouble, but if you are flexible you’ll find a thousand great options under $1000!

I haven’t officially started dress shopping… more like dress looking lol. If that makes any sense at all. From looking at pictures, I have an idea of what I like and want…. However, I’m in the same boat as you with not wanted to spend a lot of money. I was trying to keep mine under $500, which seems perfectly fine considering I don’t want a ball gown of any sort. I want more of a lace or chiffon sheath type dress with a short train. I have been looking on goweddingdress.com and they basically make knock-offs of all the popular designer dresses. And for most of them costing under $300, I may end up going that route. I can’t vouch for their quality, but they do take custom measurements for a small fee extra, which means minimal to no alterations! I haven’t looked at their return policy because, like I said, I’m not quite ready to buy yet.

And, like most brides, I don’t want to miss the dress buying process with friends and family and such (actually, I could care less, but one of my bm’s and my mother have already made it known they want to go dress shopping with me :-/) But I do plan to at least go try on dresses, just to get an idea of how certain styles fit.

Just an idea of course….. I’m also pretty sure that David’s Bridal is having their $99 gown sale until the 16th (I keep seeing commercials).
