If you check the destination collection of designers like Mori lee, maggie sottero or even dessy you are likely to find something of similar fabric and style

I’m sure you could find chinese replicas of that or another designer dress like that.

My dress (I can’t believe I can say that now!) is chiffon from Alfred Angelo. David’s Bridal also has a chiffon dress that I liked!

I wore this chiffon dress from David’s Bridal (although the model pic does it no justice):

ETA: Since the model picture isn’t so great, here is pics of me in it.  Real bride photos are always better, IMO.

This is the DB chiffon dress. It was really light and the back is REALLY pretty! And I’m a DDD cup!

@missrobots: Ohh!  That new DB one looks like a great fit for what the OP is looking for!

@Miss Tattoo: That’s the dress I wore!  I loved it!  Although you look fantastic in the dress you chose too!

i fell in love with this dress when i first started collecting ideas – it would look really cute with some cap sleeves and i believe the bow is removable

I believe it was a Watters dress, maybe in the wtoo collection

this is part of their new collection and i love it!

It’s brand new. It’s under their “new arrivals” section.

Yes, I still look at new wedding gowns even though I’ve been a wife for 2.5 months now. LOL.

Once you know that its your dress, sign up for the Sample Sales via NYMag.  I was lucky to find my Gurl online via yourdreamdress.com but I was ready to fly to NYC to buy my dress. I know you don’t want to shop online, but once you know your size and  you can get it @ a discount, I would give it a go.  Check out oncewed.com, recycledbride.com, and preownedweddingdresses.com. 

Also there is Chruch Street Bridal in Virgina which Sales samples @ a huge discount. 

Good Luck!!!!
