I haven’t been able to try Jessie on yet (sample size was just a tad too small to get on! So sad!) but I already can tell I absolutely love it! The lace and subtle sparkle was amazing. And the train was aweseme!! I plan on driving a few hours away just to try it on in my size because it might be the dress for me!
The only problem is, it is on the high end of my budget and doesn’t leave much room for alterations. I am under budget in a few other categories, so I know I would be able to make it work, but the real question is do I really want to do that? My fiance and I are paying for everything ourselves, so I would love to be able to cut back as much as possible. I have tried looking online for a used dress, but the few I have found are size 4, and I am a size 10-12.
This is where I need help from you bees! I also tried on Stella York 5703, which the lady at the boutique said had the same silhouette as Jessie, but the lace wasn’t near as beautiful! No sparkle or anything. It was still a stunning dress, and so far it is my favorite that I was able to try on.
Do any of you guys have any suggestions for anything similar to Jessie? I would love to see real pictures of Jessie or anything similar!

@julies1949: I am a street size 10-12 I guess, so I’m not sure what dress size that is. When I tried on dresses, they never told me a size. Thank you for the links. I don’t think I could fit the first one, but I contacted the last one about shipping to the US. =) Thanks!

How much over budget is the Jessie? If you can make it work, it’s worth saving all the time and energy looking for something comparable.

I am going to be wearing Maggie Sottero’s Kyra. It is a great dress as well with some of the feel of the dress you are looking to wear.

Maggie Sottero Lorie looks very very similar

@Izzybear Thanks for the recommendation, I also loved the Jessie, however it was out of my budget and when I came across your post, I quickly check out the Lorie dress and you are so right, so right that I purchased by dress yesterday! Thanks again for your post.

I tried some gorgeous demetrios gowns very similar to that. They were between 1500 and 2000 (not sure what your budget is). I really was set on having straps and got a lace gown with straps that has very similar lace.
