For a dress for my sister's wedding. It's her 2nd time around , so we are no making gowns. Everyone will wear a dress. My financial situation is bad ! I can't spend $500 on a dress. Any ideas?
Yeshivish family in Brooklyn with traditional taste.
Or maybe somewhere I could rent a dress?

You can wear a dress from Amazon with a shell. Order two sizes and keep the one that fits and return the other.

Just look for "mother of the bride" dress on Amazon. My friend found a dress for under $100 (but I don't see it now). She wore a shell underneath a sheer lace dress. Tea length is shorter and less formal than a full-length gown, so look for tea length dress.

Like the previous poster said, tons of dresses on Amazon. This one piqued my interest this week when it popped up in a targeted ad https://www.amazon.com/gp/prod.....d8218

You can borrow. If there's enough time, order from Shein. It's so cheap and lately they have really nice, tznius things. But it could take up to a month to get to you.
Hatzlacha!

Go to Mezzo on 17th. Youll find something perfect in less than that range.

I don't think our Shein orders ever take longer than 2 weeks, even faster our last order was ordered on Sept 1st, shipped Sept 2nd, arrived Sept 8th

Check out instagowns.com

$500 is a generous budget. You can find something worn once for that price.

I had 3 weddings this year bH. I made one gown for around $800 and wore it to 2 weddings (different sides), then I lucked out and bought a new gown for the third wedding for $225 on sale.

I hope to resell them now and make back some money.

I once bought a beautiful custom gown from someone who had it made by a top designer for over $1k. She wanted to get rid of it and sold it to me for $400. Someone saw it on me and offered me $400 Smile
That was a great buy. It was so beautiful I regret selling it though! (But who am I kidding, I was 3 sizes smaller then.)

What do you already own? Do you have an outfit you wear to close simchas, that you could dress up to make a bit nicer? If you need to buy, dresses are pricey, like you said—I think wearing a dressy skirt with a dressy top is much cheaper usually. Or, I don’t know what you have in Brooklyn, but in Monsey I’ve seen these long dressy toppers you wear over a black dress to make it fancy.

H&M currently has a nice midi pleated black skirt with a slight sheen (so it’s dressier looking) for $40. I actually bought the same skirt in a different color from them last year and am happy with it. If you wear an elegant top and nice jewelry, it could work very well for you.

⬆️ All those dresses are from ASOS. Under 200€. Some more elegant than others but all could look great with beautiful heels and handbag, make up and wig done. I’m a big believer that we can look very put together and stylish without breaking the bank! Behatzlacha op! 😘

If you're interested in a beautiful navy dress from a recent simcha, pm me for pics. I would be happy to see it go to a good use instead of sitting in my closet

Try eshakti. You can personalize the neckline, sleeves and length. I've ordered from them, and they do great work.

It usually takes under 3 weeks.

Check for coupons as well.

I love this, although this neckline can't be changed so you would need a shell. https://www.eshakti.com/shop/D.....ce=fx
