I love this dress – it’s uniqueness, clean modernism, and bold design. But at just under 5k, it’s over my self-imposed dress budget of about 2k. Can you show me similar styles? They don’t have to be almost identical – this is just my inspiration, and I haven’t seen much else like it. I’d love to find some more affordable options for a unique, modern shealth dress that preferably has sleeves and at LEAST has straps (strapless isn’t my thing).
I’d be thrilled if someone could help me, so thanks in advance!

I should also note that I’m open to color and dresses that aren’t officially “wedding” dresses. I’m pretty non-traditional and would actually be thrilled to find something I might be able to alter and wear again.

Check out some Justin Alexander dresses! Some are similar to this and mine was under $2K!

Nontra: Itis a lovley dress. Stunning in its simplicity. I am sure a competent dressmaker could reproduce this for well under $5000 (probably under $1000)

Check out some of the new 2015 Essense of Australia gowns (they should be dropping the photos soon so keep checking their site for updates)
Also I know they’re not exactly the same but still a nice clean look…

Plus you could always do a formal bridesmaids dress in ivory or white

Thanks, everyone! I’m very grateful for the time you spent helping me. I’ll definitely look into everything you posted. What do you think about reproduction shops/sites? A friend ordered from a Chinese one and was happy. I know nothing about this, so any suggestions of good sites? Or is going with a good dressmaker the best option?
would love to see anything else you’d like to share. I’m pretty nontradotional and some dresses look too “bridal” to me. Sorry if that sounds weird. So I’d love to see any more nontradotional or alternative dresses, too!
thanks again, you guys are great!!
