My dream gown is the Lucinda gown from J.Crew, but it’s almost $3000 (which is half my total budget!) I’m actually having someone on etsy make it for me, so it will be much more affordable. And I am having them make the one change I want (which is to add scalloped embroidery to the top and bottom)

This is a fun thread, I’m excited to see what everyone else has to say!

there are so many beautifull dresses out there. I love champagne or gold colored dresses with embroidery.  I love the the pickup skirt look and I think my favorite is strapless:)  I will have to look around some online and post a picture when I find my favorite:)

@acountrycowgirl – you might consider Maggie Sottero, she has many affordable pick-up gowns that are reasonably affordable (under $1k).  It’s worth looking into!

Ahh. I can’t decide what my dream gown would be. There’s so many that I like. Mainly I can’t decide I want to go with a trumpet or mermaid style or an A-line. But this dress absolutely takes my breath away. I love the different layers of lace.

@mandalynn~ I took your advice from a few weeks ago, and I am also having the jcrew lucinda dress made by an etsy vendor.  I have already sent in my measurements, and I’ll be going to Chicago for my first fitting in June!  BEST ADVICE EVER!  I was in the same boat:  In love with the dress, but $3k was 3x my dress budget, so this route is fantastic!

YOu know, I would have major trouble having my own dress made! Even though I have a lovely, wonderful dress that I totally rock, I don’t know that I could change a thing about it. I LOVE wedding dresses in general, dont’ get me wrong. I wish I had the mad skills to design them myself becuase I know what I like when I see it and what I would change, but there are so many varieties, I think my "dream gown" would ultimately depend on my mood at that very moment. Sometimes I feel high fashion, sometimes I feel classic, sometimes I feel more glam and want a sexier look, so the one I got incorporates it all. I really like dresses with dramatic low, sexy backs, but i had to compromies with the corset. Still it’s dramatic! Instead, I’m getting the effect of the low back by having my rehearsal dinner dress and honeymoon dress made by my mom and I. I found two patterns I loved so much and matched them with fabrics I liked, so now I can essentially get what I want. Wow that was long
