  • I paid $150 for mine. David's Bridal sometimes has their $99 sales. I would start there.

  • Unless you try consignment shops or places like Goodwill or Craigslist (if you would consider second-hand dresses) your best bet would be David's Bridal. Since you are getting married so soon you might want to consider buying a gown off the rack at the store. Most bridal shops measure you, have you order the dress MONTHS in advance, then have to have it altered when it comes in. It is such long process and you would be cutting it very close for time. I got mine for free since I had an aunt who still had hers and was getting ready to give it to Goodwill when I was getting married! My daughter has been looking for a while now (she was getting married in July also) but she changed the date to December. She still hasn't bought her gown yet b/c she keeps changing her mind! But she has plenty of time.

  • I got mine from Davids bridal. It was $550, but on sale for $450. My sis just got hers from there as well, $750 on sale for $650. They let you do a lay away too which I like. We did that for my sis's dress.

  • i was walking in the mall and saw a white dress in the front window. most people wouldn't call it a wedding dress, it was a white springy kinda dress but it was exactly what i wanted and i spent 25 bucks on it and to this day no one knows. why spend so much money on some dress you'll only wear once?
