If you don’t mind a little road trip, I would check out Henri’s Cloud Nine in Minerva, OH. That’s where I’m finding A LOT under that price that are gorgeous! The two gowns I absolutely love are both under $600. Plus they have their own gown designs on top of designer stuff. I live about two hours away from there and it was definitely worth the drive, and the consultants are absolutely amazing.

go to local dress shops that are more family-owned.  They usually carry a number of dress lines that will be under $1000.

Oh my gosh, there’s a ton out there for less than $1000, especially if you’re willing to go pretty close ($900 range).  I’m in Canada, so prices might be a little different (typically higher, I believe), but I rarely saw a dress over $1300.  Most Mori Lee’s will be ok, most Alfred Angelo’s, a good chunk of Alfred Sung’s.  Mine’s a Jai and came in at $950 plus tax.

L&H Bridal carries dresses in your price range.  I believe that’s in northeast Philly.  La Bella Moda in Conshohocken does too.  There’s also a store in Wilmington, DE…I think it’s called Fantasia Bridal that has a lot of dresses.

Many of the Casablanca dresses are under $1,000.  You might also want to contact the bridal salons in your area.  Some specialize in affordable dresses.

Google “Bridal Warehouse” (Not sure if you have one in your area), they are in the Nashville TN & Louisville KY area. Anyhow, there are prices on all of the dresses. I know that they may not be exactly what another shop would be asking, but it should give you a good idea.

I went to both David’s and Alfred Angelo – both places had plenty of styles under 1K (my budget as well!) and I found my dress at AA!!

I shopped mostly at the small bridal shops, but everything I looked at (pretty much) was around $1000–give or take about $200.  I got a pronovias gown that was under $1000 and all of the other Pronovias and Maggie Sottero gowns that I tried on and liked were around or a little under $1000. Pretty much ALL of the ones that I liked were in those 2 brands, but you definitely won’t be constrained to only a few brands if you have $1000 and can shop at a local retailer.

If there is a Nicole Miller Bridal nearby, that was another shop that I visited that had most of the gowns under $1000.  They were simpler than most wedding gowns, but if that is what you are looking for that is another option.

My dress was $1k if new but I bought it off the rack…be open to that, and it will help a lot!  It usually means a 10-40% discount I think.
It was a La Sposa by Pronovias.

I live in Philly too.  You should check out http://www.sabrinaann.com/ in Ardmore.  She sells higher end sample gowns so you could get a high end quality gown in your budget.  I tried on a bunch there and even had a deposit on a Lazaro that was amazing.  They were all in perfect condition.  I’m actually thinking of going back to check out their accessories.

I tried on *dozens* of dresses at a local bridal shop, and not a single one was over $1000. Just be sure to call the shop in advance and make sure they have dresses within your budget. And let your consultant know the maximum amount you’re willing to spend – not all of them ask.
