If years of binge-watching Say Yes to the Dress has given you unrealistic expectations about the cost of a white gown, it's time to snap out of it. Run by best friends Viviana Planas and Jenise Castro, La Vie en Blanc opened in 2012 to give uncompromising brides the dresses of their dreams at a slightly more reachable price. Hundreds of preworn, last-season, and designer sample gowns line the walls of this lovely, welcoming space in an otherwise unremarkable industrial park. Dresses run 25 to 75 percent off retail and are helpfully organized by price. Perfect for procrastinators or those otherwise on a time crunch, dresses can even be brought home the day of purchase. And for the truly budget-conscious, consider this: After the wedding is done and the honeymoon is over, you can sell the dress right back to the shop to recoup some of the expense.
