I’ve somehow picked out a dress that is way out of my price range. I was hoping that maybe some of you other brides out there may have seen a cheaper version somewhere.(under $1000 Canadian)
What sold me on this dress is:
- It has sleeves.
- A nice lace detail on top but very simple on the bottom(we’re going for a casual elegence feel to the day so this works perfectly)
- The sashe!
If I could somehow swing the money all around, I’d order this dress.

Gorgeous dress! very very amazing! I will do some searching around and get back to you as I may be able to find some canadian sites as I live here in Alberta

I’m sorry, but the only dress which reminds me of this one is significantly more expensive.

I was also going to say it looks like a Monique Lhuillier! Maybe you could look into ordering a similar design wholesale from Pearl’s Place?

I think it is that Monique one, so great find! Plus, it looks like they dropped their asking price so it’s only 1K! If I were you and that’s the dress you wanted, I would go for it!

Would you consider a simpler strapless dress with a lace bolero as an alternative? I don’t have any specifics in mind, but it might add up to less cost.

Let me start this off with, I detest strapless gowns. I have thought about getting a strapless gown and a bolero but then I shutter at the thought of wearing a strapless gown. The Monique Lhuiller gown is very very similair but I know that it fit considering I’m street size 16!
I’ll keep a look out for that gown used in a larger size though.

I think that Marisa made or makes a very similar design, and they are usually significantly less than the Monique Lhuillier dresses (although I’m not sure the price on this specific gown), but use high quality alencon lace.
You might look for a store that sells Marisa dresses in your area, and see what they have in stock. I think that design is a few seasons old, too, so you might find a used one on ebay or craigslist (Style number 611J).
I feel your pain about not liking strapless- I was also opposed to it, but found a gorgeous, non-strapless dress.
