I am a two dress bride so I know how it feels to be unsure if you have the right gown.  My second dress purchase was a Maggie Sottero and I absolutely love it.  It was around $600, which pleasantly surprised me and I think all of her gowns are resonably priced.

Good Luck!

Have you tried davids bridal?

http://www.davidsbridal.com

Most of their dresses are under $1000. Also, look for bridesmaids dresses in white or ivory. You’re sure to spend half as much as you would if it said "wedding dress" on the tag, but still get a nice dress.

You could also try ebay. You can find great deals if you just know where to look.

I had mine custom made.  You might want to call a couple dressmakers and chat about your budget.  My guy, Kiko Rodriguez, has dresses he’s made anywhere from less than $500 to, well, way more than my dress for sure.  😉  Many custom designers (especially here in SEA) can work within any budget.

Mine was a Mon Cheri, and it was $895. Other designers under $1000 are Jasmine, Casablanca, Mary’s P.C., and Alfred Angelo. You should just go to http://www.houseofbrides.com and browse to get an idea of price range. I’ve heard bad things about actually ordering from them, but it can’t hurt to get an idea of how much things cost online.

I got a Jasmine dress for about $700 (I think the total after ordering custom length and tax was about $850).  I purchased from Amanda’s Bridal Boutique in Redmond (close by Redmond Town Center)http://www.amandasbridalboutique.com/

I also tried lots of dresses at I Do Bridal in Wallingford that were around $1,000 http://www.idobridal.com/ .

There were a few right around $1,000 at La Belle Reve in Bellevue too (but most were over $1,000) http://www.labellereve.com/

GOOD LUCK!

hey there =)

I went to:

I Do Bridal in wallingford- Huge selection of sub-1k dresses. the lady that helped me was super fun and friendly.  I ended up choosing a dress I tried on here, but ordered it online since it was about $200 less, and it arrived in just 2 months.

Belltown Bride- High-end designer dresses. Most are over 1k, but some are in the 700-800 range

Cynderellie’s Closet in Edmonds- similar stock to I Do Bridal, but lower prices

 Or the next time you’re back in CA, you could check out Jeremy’s in SF.  My friend got her Vera Wang gown there for $300 =)

I don’t have any Seattle leads, but I’ve really been digging WToo gowns when I see them in magazines and online.  They’re the lower-priced cousin of Watters & Watters gowns, and all of them (as far as I can tell) are under $1000.  I’m planning to try some on soon, I’ll let you know if they’re as great in person!

also check out bridesmaids dresses, a lot of them come in white and ivory and are pretty enough for a less formal wedding

I second I Do Bridal and Cynderellie’s Closet, most of the ones I looked at were under $1,000.  At Cynderellie’s you can take pictures and they are only open for appointment on Sunday’s so you get the whole place to yourself!  I’m choosing between 2 Casablanca’s that are under $1K and will be even less expensive by ordering online(check Netbride.com, Pearl’s Place, RK Bridal, Chrissy O’s, Lee Phillip).

That’s basically what I did.  I brought in, like, 30 (!!!) pictures of different dresses that I liked, and Kiko pulled together elements from each one to make my dress.  I’m sure he can make most dress you want.  Plus, he was just a total dream to work with.  🙂
