Would love some help figuring out which style this Vera Wang is. The top half looks like the Georgina, but the bottom train looks like the Diana…it’s pretty close to my perfect dress but I’m stumped as to what it’s called. The seller says the original price was $9,000…which would make it a Luxe gown?
Any help – much appreciated!

not 100% sure but i think it could be fawn with the neckline altered??

Maybe a custom version of the above(fawn)? It;s also the closest I can find and I know some designers will do custom variations on dresses sometimes.
Can you ask the seller?

Thank you! I’ve come to the same conclusion – it’s the Fawn with a customised bust. It’s crazy because the crumbcatcher bust is the only thing I don’t love about the Fawn, and this dress has eliminated that. I’m still not fond of the horizontal organza pleats at the top of the bodice, but perhaps it could be removed.
I’m going to hitch a poll to this now – should I go for the Georgina, or this customised Fawn? I realise they are fairly similar in terms of silhouette and effect. I love the back of the Georgina – the swirls of tulle remind me of clouds – but the Fawn looks a little more ‘couture’ somehow, more glamorous. I’m having a Bali destination wedding FYI, likely at a hotel or villa (cliff poolside rather than on the beach).
Here is the Georgina for comparison:

@ifheaven: my FI still prefers the Georgina too, and the pleats across the bust of the modified Fawn are bothering me more and more. I’m so details-oriented (read:obsessive) it’s driving even myself crazy.
i considered getting it made, but after seeing the quality and finish of the materials and construction in China, I think I’ve realised that the final result will either fail to meet my frustratingly-exacting standards (and my mother’s) or, be so prohibitively expensive that I may as well go for the original. I am still hoping to find a preloved Georgina, I need a size 4 or larger ideally and so far all the ones for sale are teeny tiny 0s and 2s.
