Mine was $800. I hadn’t started alterations on it yet, but thankfully the only thing that needs it is the bottom! Sorry fo the terrible cell phone pics!


Mine is a Mori Lee and they have amazing dresses and a good 90% of them are under $1,000! Good luck!

Check out Mori Lee dresses, they are beautiful (I think) and good quality and many are under $1000 from what I’ve seen.

I ended up ordering Mori Lee 4701 last Saturday from House of Brides. The suggested retail price was $840 or so, and the shop had discounted it by over $200, then we bargained off another $60. So AFTER shipping and handling + tax, the dress cost us only $608! I was also lucky enough to have the right size fit me PERFECTLY, with no alterations or hemming needed.


This sample dress in the pictures is a bit wrinkled- it looks MUCH better in person than in photos, I love it!

I can’t show a pic with me wearing it as I’m waiting for it to be delivered. Mine was under 200 pounds (I’m in UK) from a Chinese website.

The stuff I won’t wear again (dress, veil, slip) altogether were about $700. I do intend to try to sell the slip. I figure I’ll re use the bra (which I don’t have yet in this pic, which is why I look so saggy on top), I’ll wear the shoes til they disintegrate, and I’ll even re use the brooches on the sash.

My reception dress was under 1k. It’s a Vera Wang White by David’s Bridal. Hated my shopping experience, but I loved my dress.
