@LearCat23:  I have heard nothing but wonderful things about preownedweddingdresses.com. If you haven’t found one cheap enough, you could also have a replica made! I’d check out Jasmine’s Bridal Shop!

@LearCat23: Keep your eye on the classifieds on here. Ebay will of course be worth checking on and sellmyweddingdress.c.uk looks good too. Happy planning and good luck in your search!

I think it’s definitely worth going and trying them on, especially since it’s going to be your first time trying on wedding dresses anyhow. Then you can examine the condition of the dresses, and you can reflect on how you feel about renting your wedding dress. 

 

In case you should decide to purchase a less expensive option, here are some dresses similar to the Claire Pettibone, and Jenny Packham style:

Also a some of Claire Pettibone dresses look a little like Regency style dresses, so it might be worth checking out any vintage/consignment shops for Regency style dresses. Here’s an example of a bride who found her dress at a vintage shop. She fell in love with a piece of lace, and the owner was able to make her a vintage style dress from that piece of lace: http://thenaturalweddingcompany.co.uk/blog/2013/11/the-story-of-a-handmade-brides-stunning-antique-lace-edwardian-wedding-dress-from-lucy-says-i-do/

 

I also commented previously on a post with plenty of regency/austen inspired dresses under $2000, pictures, designer, and style names included

Also, apparently there are some vintage bridal fairs ^_^
