Affordable wedding dress stores?

Any suggestions on affordable wedding dress stores in the Portland, OR area? Price range $200-400. Thanks!

    The Volunteers of America store on 181st and Division has TONS of wedding dresses.  Most are not new and they only have one of each and can't get it in your size, but a good friend of mine got her dress, brand new with tags, from them for $100-someodd.  She looked it up at home - it's a $1000 dress.  Definitely worth a shot!  Remember that something that is too big can always be taken in, and if it's something you like but you wish that straight across strapless was a sweetheart neckline it can be changed.  Kathy Agen of Kathi's Stitchery in Gresham has been known to go shopping with brides for second hand dresses to help them imagine the possibilities.

    Wow there are so many great idea! I got my dress online from Ebay.  It is custom made and 100% silk.  It's beautiful and it was under $200.  There are a lot of pretty custom made gowns on Ebay to choose from.  New to You in McMinnvile also has a lot of used wedding gowns.

    The Bridal Station at 9804 SW Shady Ln, Tigard OR 97223.  She was having a pink tag sale recently, and seems to be very reasonably priced.

    There is also Brides Against Breast Cancer, it is a nationwide fundraiser where all the gowns are donated (some are new and some are used) and there main office is in Portland where you can go and try on their gowns.  I got my 2000 dollar dress for 500!  If you have time to wait their big events are really great and happen twice a year, but I would suggest looking at their store as well.  best of luck finding a dress!
