What is your budget?

Have you tried to find a reputable dress maker and brought her this picture? She might very well be able to recreate it for a price you can afford.  There isnt a lot of detail work and no beading so I think this might be a viable option.

Do you want it in pink (it looks pink in the pic)?

I agree with lefeymw. I’m pretty confident that if you took it to any dressmakers they’d be able to make a replica. If you’re REALLY on a budget, it might be worth trying a china replica company.. there are lots of good reviews from other bees on here so it would be worth looking into some of the companies they used.

You could try http://www.dressilyme.com

 It’s a company that makes replicas. I’m getting my dress, veil, crinoline, MOH’s dress, FG’s dress and FI’s suit from them, all for under $600.  The prices are great,, and you can email pics to them and get a quote. It is a chinese company, but they are very reputable and the customer service is great.

Good Luck!

I bought my Anne Barge from this website–it was in perfect condition.  And it was only $649!!!  Definitely keep an eye out–she does mark them down if they don’t sell.

If you can find a good dressmaker to knock it off in silk satin, that is your best bet.  The David’s Bridal is a good sub if you aren’t attached to the silk

I would hesitate about the Chinese websites.  The quality isn’t there (if that’s important to you) and this silhouette is very hard to fit.  The quality may be no worse than DB, but at least you know what you are getting and they do have seamstresses who are used to altering their gowns.

The good news–you have lots of time to stalk the website and the pre-owned websites as well.

BTW–this dress is stunning!!

OP that dress is very easy to make.  Try a tailor.
