Just a heads up that Exquisite Bride in Gibsonia, PA is having a sample sale right now. I got my dress for $149-- can't believe my luck!! (This is after visiting multiple bridal stores in PA and VA and trying on TONS of expensive dresses with no success.) It was originally $500. I tried on a few that are supposed to retail for $1500+. They had a surprisingly wide selection. You might want to check it out if you are in the area.
