@Shamrock105:  Um, which part of the world do you live? Also, what is your ideal budget? It might help to put a picture of your “ideal” dress.

If you live in the states, check out Stephanie James Couture.

But there are a lot of vintage-inspired dresses out there.

P.S. I ended up picking a vintage-inspired dress, but it wasn’t full length like my “ideal” dress. 🙂

ETA: I picked mine from DB. They may not provide bridal princess like one-on-one service, but the price of dresses are very reasonable. You can find dresses starting between $300 and $2k range.

If you live around LA area, check out http://1907bridal.com/
I follow them on Instagram.

Try Grace Loves Lace. They have beautiful vintagey boho style gowns and you can buy online.  Or if you are after a retro/50s style gown, Dolly Couture also has an online store.

If that dress is truly what you want, you could try find a local seamstress in Chinatown; local reviews pending, of course. Most seamstresses can replicate a dress you at a much more affordable price. (Pro: you can skip alterations altogether)

However, if you are still wanting to look around to try on dresses, this bridal house in NY carries SJC’s collection.

The dress in the picture looks like it’s of a sheath silhouette? (aka along the lines of Claire Pettibone)

Maybe start by looking at sheath silhouette dresses and see which one has got a vintage feel to it. 🙂 When I was at DB, the consultant pulled out a dress that would’ve fit the vintage theme. I posted it onto my Instagram; my brother was like, “Ooh, nice! You look like you’re from the Victorian period.” (So, that was a no for me, lol) I was going for 1950s.
