Don't worry, as you can still purchase a beautiful, elegant wedding dress even if you have a budget.

Many retailers discount items at the stores from time to time, and bridal stores are not an exception. Look for clearance racks at bridal stores, ask about when sales are - you might find out that your perfect dress there is on sale right now!
And do look at the department stores even if you are looking for something a bit more formal. You never know what you can find sometimes.
- Sales and Clearances at Department Stores. Especially if you are looking for informal wedding dresses, department stores might be a great place to look. Sometimes special occasion dresses get discounted a lot, and you can buy a very pretty wedding dress for under $100.
- Online Stores and Sales. Search for wedding dresses online, including online web stores and auctions. Sometimes you can get a much better deal online, then you would ever find at stores.
Good luck with finding that perfect dress. Once you have an idea about the dress that you are looking for, as well as the price range you are willing to pay, you should be able to find that perfect dress.
