Going to a bridal shop and buying a dress "off the rack" can also save money, if you can find one your size.
Additionally, if you go to a private shop (not a chain store like David's Bridal) you can often negotiate the price down, especially if you agree to get your bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen tuxes from there.
If you have any wedding detail/planning questions, just let me know. I'm currently 50 days away from my wedding day!
