I’ve been to two appointments now at stores I don’t think I would go back to and I’m looking for some advice on what designers to target so I can make some more appointments.
What I originally loved were Jenny Packham dresses, especially the Esme, but I tried it on this weekend and it looked horrible on me. All her dresses, did so now sheaths are out entirely. I love love loved all the beading though and I was willing to increase my budget for it.
I ended up trying on a bunch of other stuff and the shape I am most comfortable in is the ball gown with a natural waist. What I would like is a tulle ballgown with straps and SERIOUS SPARKLE.
My budget is about $2000 but I could go over for something that was amazing.
If you ladies could suggest any designers or specific dresses I should look at I would really appreciate it!

@TrousseauHorse: I know a blingy ballgown! Essence of Austraila D1537. I love the back!

That’s very pretty on top and in the back. I would prefer a natural waist and a tulle skirt though.

Try looking at Allure dresses, their sparkly dresses are beautiful & well-balanced. They also fit your budget!

this is from the maggie sottero fall collection( it’s actually the “esme” lol) haven’t seen it in person but it looks amazing! idk how easy it would be to add straps tho!

Admittedly, you’d almost certainly find it easier getting straps added to a strapless tulle sparkly ballgown.

@TrousseauHorse: What about Pronovias Ursula? One strap but sparkley!

Cinderella 205 bride here and my dress couldn’t have been any more sparkley!
The skirt is COVERED in sparkle. I wish I had a picture that captured that best. Here’s a picture of another lovely bee showing the sparkles.

@TrousseauHorse: I would recommend looking at Casablanca and Allure gowns. They are both within your price range and have some sparkly top yrulletulle ball gowns.
I loved this Casablanca, but it is not a natural waist. I don’t have the rest on my iPad, but I will post more

i’m obsessed with this new Monqiue Llhuliler Champagne. It has a sheer over lay with cap sleeves. And it’s sparkly to the max!

Just so you know Casablanca can make custom changes to any dress when you order it.

I second the suggestion for the Maggie “Esme” dress. Its AMAZING.
