Hello, I’m fairly new to the weddingbee board. I have been looking for a wedding gown that costs less than $500 but having a hard time. Any one know of any places in south fl (east coast) that sells gowns for under 500? I’ve only heard of online stores having good deals but I would really like to try on the dress before purchasing, being as I don’t even know my dress size! Any help/advise would be welcomed! Thanks!

Call around bridal stores and ask if they sell off-the-rack dresses, or used sample gowns. I tried on many of these, all priced under $500. I ended up finding my gown for $200 at an expensive-seeming boutique that was having a rack sale. Also look into consignment shops.
Another idea is to try on dresses under $800 or so, then when you find one you like, look for it online, used. You can ask sellers what the measurements are, but a good rule of thumb is 2 sizes up from yoru normal dress size. This is not always true, of course.
Best of luck!
