Wedding Dresses for Under $200

Target is offering wedding dresses for under $200!

Now, I've been griping lately about imported Chinese goods. These Isaac Mizrahi gowns are probably sewn in sweatshops in Asia, so mentioning them here isn't meant as a promotion per se. That said, I still find it fascinating.

NPR did a quick story on the online-offered gowns today, which you can listen to here.

Mind you, you can still find a cheap used wedding gown at a consignment shop or even Goodwill, but you run the risk of getting only a limited pool of outdated dresses to choose from. With the Target gowns, at least you're starting with something modern and chic that you can spruce up and personalize on your own.

For those of us plus-size girls, Lane Bryant has great wedding dress for under $200.

The Isaac Mizrahi gowns go up to a size 18.

I've never seen the dresses at Lane Bryant. Thanks for the tip!

You can already buy decent men's suits for less than $100 there. I've received many compliments for my suits and they're dirt cheap.

Wow, Eowyn is bad-ass. Interesting that there was no hobbit version.

And it that's considered slutty in Rivendell... (tries to think of smart-ass comment. Fails).

I've never understood why a man can rent a Tux for his wedding, but women are expected to BUY their dress?
