Anyone have suggestions? Found this dress while searching google images, did a reverse image search and almost fell off my chair at the price! $1,230.00?! That’s about $830 over budget for me Not to say it doesn’t look worth that much, because it definitely does. I just can’t afford it!

Lace is very high in demand so a lot of designers will charge more for it because they know brides will pay. With a lower budget, I suggest going the replica/custom route. You will find a lo of designers on etsy or other sites that will give you exactly what you want for what you can spend. You can also look into pre owned dresses or buying a sample in a salon. There are plenty of ways to get what you’re seeking.

A $400 budget isn’t going to get you much in terms of lace. I agree you will probably need to go the Chinese-made replica route if that’s the look you want.
Here are a couple from David’s bridal that are sort of similar. They are still more than $400 but less than the one you posted.
Oleg Cassini – $750 – Link here
David’s Bridal Collection – $650 – Link here
