In search of affordable bridal gowns

A. Believe it or not, there are some truly beautiful – and affordable – bridal gowns available. The Limited and J Crew recently launched wedding departments, and Anthropologie plans to join them next year. We also found some relatively inexpensive gowns at Nordstrom, Dillard’s, eDressMe and Lord & Taylor.
