I can see why you love the style!  If I lived close to there I would probably have changed my mind and gone with her designs!  I am a JP bride so I think you might want to take a look at her dresses as there are many similar elements including all silk materials.  The other designer I can think of is Claire Pettibone though she doesn’t use as much beading, so if you don’t mind the beading but equisite vintage-style flowy dress materials take a look!  Some of Kenneth Pool gowns also have some similar aspects but not as vintage looking as JP or CP in my opinion but equisite beadwork and beautiful lines.  Just let us know what you end up choosing =p

That second dress is spectacular. I think the closest I’ve seen are Jenny Packham or Claire Pettibone.

However, if you’re on a tighter budget (and aren’t afraid of being a bit bold with the neckline), Maggie Sottero came out with this art deco stunner:

@HoldFastHope:  I’m going to wear Aspen (the older version of the new Dentelle) but Willow was a very very close second. Luna was also one of my top contenders and it a gorgeous gown but it didn’t fit me quite as well as Aspen or Willow.  I’m in Canada so I think everything here is a bit pricier due to duties and especially taxes but I think in USD they run around 4-6k USD?

@CelticBeachBride:  That Maggie Sottero is a stunner!!

 

I also just remembered that Tadashi Shoji has some pretty spectacular gowns.  After I bought my dress I came across this one and I would have seriously considered it!

or BHLDN

I don’t know if these are available but maybe something to keep an eyeout if nothing catches your eye at the moment.

Sorry for the large pics!

@Ettalie:  I know! I’m not bold enough to wear it. 

Actually, I didn’t think to mention it before, but the dress I’m wearing is soft and romantic, and has a vintage feel as well. It’s also a Maggie Sottero. It’s called Emma.  I LOVE everything about this dress: the back, the scalloped lace details–and that it’s soft and romantic, yet still blingy (you can’t tell from this photo–but it REALLY sparkles in the light):

As the others have said, Claire Pettibone and Jenny Packham are the obvious alternatives. 

If they are beyond your price range, here are some other possibilities:

Martina Liana

Hailey Paige

Maggie Sottero

Wow I keep forgetting, of course Martina Liana!  

This dress was SPECTACULAR.  I would have gotten it over the JP if only it wasn’t a sweetheart neckline.  The price was around 2k CDN.

St Patrick also makes some really nice gowns

You can see more detailed images of the dress from this style me pretty wedding:

I know the dress comes in a champagne colour which is quite gorgeous, but also in ivory.  This dress was the least expensive that I tried on but I think it was meant to be retired soon (not sure if it was a sale tactic by the lady, could be).

As you can see there are plenty of options out there!
