I’m in love with the J.Crew Lucinda as well!  My alternative is http://www.etsy.com . I posted an alchemy request and received about 12 offers, all in the range from $250-$350!  I’m so excited, because the J.Crew dress is gorgeous, but I’m also having them add some scalloped eyelet edging to the top and bottom, so it will truly be ME!  Definitely check out Etsy!

it’s very pretty!  The Lucinda gown looks like the kind of dress an experienced seamstress can make fairly easily.  You also have a great deal of time before your wedding just in case anything goes wrong.  But try to pay by credit card just in case anything goes wrong.

 I too was in love with a dress I couldn’t even begin to afford. A friend referred me to an on-line site http://www.gioavonnisbridalboutique.net who makes custom replica wedding gowns (In the USA), and it turned out beautifully and I couldn’t be more pleased.

I went to Kleinfelds one day, just for fun since I realized I could never afford anything there – but hey, when will I be able to try on a $10,000 dress again.  Well I fell in love with the $10,000 dress!

The good news is that I continued shopping and found an even better dress for a tenth of the price!
