Consignment or off the rack with minimal alterations.  It can be done, and you will look amazing on your wedding day.  Book an appointment like TODAY and start looking!

Try a department store (like Nordstrom – Wedding Suite or Bloomingdale’s). The prices are more affordable, usually, than bridal salon prices and the fit is more like a regular formal dress than a wedding dress, meaning less alterations potentially. Even if they have to order it, it may just be from another retail location versus made to order like a bridal salon. I would also look into retailers like JCrew or BHLDN.

There’s a great consignment store in Mississauga called GownandGlory. I bought my veil for my boudoir shoot from her and she’s SO nice and the gowns she has are GORGEOUS!!!! I wish she had been open when I was dress shopping!

No idea what the keasha show is (must be a Canadian thing) but I would suggest looking on preownedweddingdresses.com.  They have designer gowns sold at a discount because they are either samples or used.  Check this one out for example.


or this 


This one is new with tags even if you are a size 4.



There is always a way.  Good luck.

@fivemonthsnotice:  Where abouts do you live? There are a TON of bridal shops in Vaughan/Woodbridge (just off hwy 400) that I didn’t know about until recently. My dress came from Sposa Italia at 4040 Steeles West in Woodbridge. But there were a ton of other bridal shops in the same plaza.

Have you looked in to Church Street Bridal?  There used to be a thread (maybe there still is, i stopped following once I found my dress) in the classifieds section of WB.  the shop also has a website.  http://www.churchstreetbridal.com/, http://churchstreetbridal.blogspot.com/ (follow them on facebook to see the dresses now, I guess)

They are a shop that sells mainly samples (so they have a lot of 10s and 20s).  All the dresses in the store are new (never worn at a wedding) but have been in bridal shops and will require cleaning prior to you wearing them; some require a bit of mending.  The dresses tend to be high end.

The prices are typically $300 – $800.  The money from the purchase of the dresses is used to help support the programs at the YWCA.

I purchased a size 16, lace, Winnie Couture dress for just over $300 from Church Street.  It required cleaning and alterations to fit me.  There was one small snag in the lace – near a seam that was going to be taken in anyway.  This was photographed prior to my purchase.

The only catch – I bought the dress online, without trying it on.  There IS a storefront, but they’re based in Virginia, and I wasn’t able to make the drive.  The dress & the deal were worth it to me, but I know not everyone will feel the same.
