These are all beautiful but I can’t identify any of the designers myself.  Jasmine, Casablanca and Anjolique all do lace dresses–most of which are pretty decent looking and under $1500.

Nearly every designer has lace dresses. A good place to check out every designer available is http://dressfinder.com

What is your price range? It may help to determine what designers to suggest?

With that said, Pronovias is pretty well known for lace dresses.

I know Jim Hjelm has a lot of beautiful lace dresses. I’m not sure the price range though.

@MsInterpret: with a budget at $600 you will have to shoot for second hand dresses if you want lace. I went lace dress shopping at everywhere from DB to high end stores and most lace dresses that are like what you are looking for started at $2K and that was conservative.

I ended up with a Marisa – its full lace strapless though. at about $2700.

Jim Hjelm has gorgeous dresses along the lines you are looking for but are wayyy expensive.

have you checked out preownedweddingdresses.com or oncewed.com?

how about something like this… http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/17215/San-Patrick-Bangor-Size-10.html

Blue by Enzoani has some lovely lace dresses, which are cheaper than Pronovias, but probably still a bit out of reach – they’re similar in price to Maggie Sottero. 

I think used/sample will be the way to go for you – I don’t know what dress size you are, but if you’re at the smaller end it should be easy for you to find something stunning in budget. I saw one girl on a forum who got a sample lace Charlotte Balbier for £99, when it normally retails at £1000-1200. Do you have SWOON in the US? Or something similar?

All I wanted was a lace dress and I ended up buying Watters Harmony.

Watters dresses ended up being the only line of lace that I liked because they did not stick beading all over their dresses like a lot of other designers. I wanted something simpler and more vintage.

Wtoo may have a dress in your pice range.

Some other designers that I considered for lace were Allure, Jasmine bridal, and Maggie Sottero. Good luck!

Oh and here’s a picture of my dress 🙂

I’m pretty sure that second pic is just a top/overshirt.  Nearly all bridal lines sell accompanying or complimentary boleros/jackets.  The Seventh pic (the girl with the dark hair and her back turned towards us) is an Allure Dress, for sure.  I tried that one on, and I actually purchased an Allure gown with a verrrry similar lace pattern.  Mine is all over lace, but its a strapless sweetheart neckline.  I’m getting married in November and would be interested in selling it to you around your budget if you’re interested.  As another suggestion, you could find a very plain dress and have a lace jacket made to your specifications (similar to pic #5), places like etsy.com do that sort of thing at a very reasonable price!
