Looks for Less: Dress the Bride $500

Classic Elegance for Under $477 (without tax)
Where to Get the Look: Bracelet by Kate Spade $195; Fascinator by Mariell on Wedding BeDazzle $68; Dress by YH Chang 2000 on Etsy $165; Shoes by Karen Scott Shoes at Macy*s $49
This was the $500 bridal look I submitted for DIY Bride's 2010 Inspiration contest.
The challenge was clear. "Submit an inspiration board that contains the following:
  • bridal gown
  • veil/headpiece/tiara/hair accessories
  • shoes
  • jewelry/other accessories
When combined, the total cost of all of the pieces of the ensemble must be less than $500. All pieces must be new (no vintage, second hand, clearance/sales, or consignment). Entries must include links to the products and list the prices in the gallery submission form to qualify."
So I designed one traditional look with a "bridal gown" for under $500. Could you put together a look that meets DIY Bride's criteria? If you can, submit it for a chance to win an Apple iPad.
Along the way I found these other cute looks for brides. What do you think?
