Zelda1:  You have a while before your wedding. Find the stores that carry this dress and ask them to inform you about trunk/sample sales. You would be able to buy this dress for probably 50% off.

I bought my dream dress this way. My dress was from a small local designer but the quality of a dress of this caliber. The dress was originally 3800, had it been from a more recognizable designer it would have been 5000-7000. The dress was on sale for 2600, and the store was selling the samples for half off. I won 500 off a dress at a bridal salon from this boutique and bought the dress for $900.

In addition to waiting for a sale try going to bridal shows and putting your name into drawings for dresses. My friends and I literally threw in about 200 tickets for this bridal salon because I knew when I saw this dress on the rack they brought it was the one.

Zelda1:  I’m a dress size 0 my sample is a 2 or 4. They’re taking a lot out of the sample I bought but I’ve been assured it should fit and look fine. This is what alterations are for.

Zelda1:  I saw this dress the other day and decided not to try it on since it was double my budget but it looks gorgeous on you! Have you found anything similar???

Zelda1:  hi! Have u tried tradesy.com? A lot of people sell their previously owned wedding gowns on there for a fraction of the price (some up to 70% off retail) I saw a couple by the same designer similar to yours but now the exact same :/ it’s always changing tho and after this wedding season I’m sure a bunch more will pop up 🙂 

Sorry I’m not much help lol I just wanted to throw that out there and also mention how stunning you look in that!!! There are tons of options out there with the same silhouette that are more affordable as well if u aren’t set on this one but I would say this silhouette is definitely perfect on you!!!

Somebody sent me this as an alternate to vera wang fawn but it’s much more similar to your dress.

If you’re still looking….
