Hi everyone, I need help!
I am in love with this Winnie Couture gown, #9101 (see attached pic), but it’s too expensive for me. I am seeking your help to find gowns that are similar to #9101.
It’s has a mermaid/trumpet silhouette with diagonal please for the upper body and slight pickups towards the bottom of the skirt.
I tried on the Allure 8526, but the skirt is too slim for my taste, i like the skirt part to be wider/fuller, such as the #9101 one.
Please please PLEASE help me find a gown that i can afford to buy!!

Here is the link to a similar dress on preownedweddingdresses.com. It’s $1,100 plus shipping but it’s NWT.

That dress is beautiful! Allure has several like that besides the one you listed. Check out 8755, 8760, 8768, 8700, c129, and 2351. (What can I say, I’m an allure bride- I love them!)

That is a gorgeous dress, and good luck with your search. have you thought of putting a crinolin under the one you don’t like as much, to give it more body?

The designers making my gown- The Chic Bride/CiciBridal have two slightly similar dresses for a good price- France for $700 and Calista for $975. My dress, Gabriella, is also similar and normally sells for $420. Only France has pickups on the skirt, but this shop (its brick and mortor store in Indiana is called The Chic Bride and its etsy store is called CiciBridal) does custom dresses for an affordable price! You can always e-mail or etsy convo the owner, Connie, send her a picture of what you want, and see how much it’d cost for her to duplicate. 🙂

How about Mikaella 1406? LOOOOVE this dress – was my #2 choice (went with a lighter weight taffeta gown instead since I’m having an outdoor summer wedding). Not sure your price point, but I found it for around $1200. Search for it on the boards, a bunch of girls have tried it on and have real life photos posted.

thank you all for the suggestions!!
i have tried on Mikaella 1406 and really liked the dress at first, then i found the pleatings and pickups of the gowns are too “structured” if you knwo what i mean.
i was browsing the board and saw a dress that i think might work but don’t know the designer and the price range, can someone help please?
it’s the one on the right:
