Who are the less expensive wedding dress designers?

I'm beginning my wedding dress search by looking at bridal designers' collections online.  Who are the "less expensive" wedding dress designers?

I'm trying to avoid David's Bridal, and I'm not convinced that I'll fit into a sample size gown.

TIA!

    Mori Lee has some less expensive gowns but probably not quite as inexpensive as davids bridal.  There is also a store called bridal n tux in Dayton that is a dress superstore.  It was recommended to me but I did not get the chance to check it out as I found my dress on my first outing to Wendy's Bridal.  They have very inexpensive gowns and I noticed they carry at least one designer that I saw at Wendy's  as well (Bonny). I am not a designer dress expert by any means but I figured that since Wendys carries a lot of high end dresses, it must be a decent quality designer. 

    Their website is www.romanticgowns.com
    Good luck!

    You might still look at the clearance racks at bridal shops for discontinued gowns or bigger size sample gowns....I just bought my dress this week on a clearance rack and they had sizes all the way up to 16.

    You can also look for dresses on TK that are labeled as $ (less than $600) and note who those designers are.

    My dress was Romantic Gowns brand that I purchased at Madison Avenue Bridal (who has since closed down). I LOVED my dress and it was around $600 with some changes I had them make.

    Bridal and Formal has a huge selection also and they will be able to help you find a dress in your budget and often they give a discount as well.
