@champagnetoast:  Hey there! This is actually my first officialy post on WeddingBee but your request made me think of my dress: JSM1103 by Sottero and Midgley. It’s champagne, lace, strapless, has an asymetrical sash that was suuuuper flattering, otherwise A-line with a small train, and I flippin’ LOVED IT.

The colors are officially ‘champagne and gold’ and honestly, when I first saw it I thought it looked like a golden brown (I realize that doesn’t sound flattering, but IRL it was just stunning).  It was $1375 before tax and alterations. 

Check it out if you’re up for it. Sottero and Midgley have lots of lace options, lace is super popular so it shouldn’t be difficult to find what you’re looking for. Allure Bridals have TONS of lace gowns, but I didn’t see any that weren’t really white and honestly, their lace didn’t feel like the best quality. 

Good luck!

@champagnetoast:   Have you peeked at the Martina Liana dresses?  The new line has some lovely warm colors.

Hi there!  I’m a non-white, lace, A-line dress wearing bride 🙂 I love my dress, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, affordable and classic dress.  Here it is Alfred Angelo 801:

Mine has lace up top, and it’s champagne colored so definitely not white!  Ball gown sort of style, but almost A line-ish.  Allure 8955

 

 

 

Not sure if this helps at all.  For what it’s worth, what you’re describing is exactly what I thought I wanted…at first haha.  The ruffles won me over once I had it on!

Maggie Sottero.  I got the Lorie, which is all lace with slight sparkle.  That is a different belt an what it comes with.

Maggie Sottero has a bunch, so does Demetrios, and Anne Barge (though her dresses might be more pricey- not really sure.  Love them though)

Mine fits your criteria! 

This is “Hilary” by David Tutera, and is well under your budget.  Color is an awesome blush pink with ivory lace.  I love it!

Have you looked at Amy Kuschel, Augusta Jones, or Theia bridal? Those are three designers who tend to do more vintage-inspired looks; and their dresses look like they should be much more expensive than they actually are. Good luck and keep us updated!

Mine is Oleg Cassini from Davids Bridal. It is an ivory trumpet lace dress with light pink 3D flower accents.

Ivoire is a new line by KittyChen Couture. They have this blue gown with lace accents that’s really pretty. They also have a blue and a pink lace gown, but they’re mermaid styles which you weren’t going for.
