wedding dress shopping on a budget ($500)

I know that David's Bridal is a place to go if you don't want to spend too much money on you wedding dress. But I was wondering if there are any other bridal stores in Denver where  could find a dress for $500 or less?

And if someone had a great experience at David's Bridal, which one did you go to? I've heard only bad reviews about DB experience....

    DB is different for everyone. you might find something really great there

    you might also try craigslist and pre-owned dress websites

    There are also a fair number of preowned boutiques around as well.    If you're ok with preowned try:

    The Green Bride in Littleon (I loved this store- the lady was really nice and helpful. They had tons of beautiful dresses.)
    The Altar Consignment in Lakewood (Only alright but they had just moved.  Beautiful new space but they were still acquiring inventory in December.  They could be great now.)
    Eco Bridal in the Highlands- Never actually made it here for an appointment but it looks really cute.

    When I was looking for a dress I was obsessed with checking the used wedding dress sites...Some of them are actually new dresses too.

    Try www.oncewed.com or www.sellyourweddingdress.com

    Good luck!

    preownedweddingdresses.com is a great site to check out once you've decided on a style you like.

    I bought a DB dress for $650 and I love it.  I originally ordered one dress but changed my mind withing 2 weeks and they gave me a credit.  It depends on which store you go to.  I went up to Westminster - some of the consultants are just ok - bu there are others that are great!

    I just bought my dress at Amanda's Bridal and Tux....I am getting married in 4 months and actually had bought my original dress (from somewhere else) almost a year ago. I had been thinking for some time that the first dress I bought just wasn't "the one". I saw a dress in a magazine a few weeks ago and knew instantly that was it.  I went to Amanda's and told them the whole story.  They were wonderful and even offered me an extra discount as I did have a budget (being that it was my 2nd dress) and they helped me stay within it.  Overall I had a really great experience.  They advertise that most of their dresses are between $200 and $1,000.  And from what I could tell there were plenty in your price range.  Good luck to you! Dress shopping is SO much fun!
