Have you tried any Saison Blanche dresses? This is a random suggestion but I  feel like I tried some on from saison Blanche that might have been along the same feel of the ones you posted. And they are great quality too!

Watters has a cheaper line called Wtoo that has some pretty nice, similar dresses…

WTOO is Watters’ less expensive line and the dresses are beautiful, comparable to WTOO designs and made of very luxurious fabrics just like the more expensive line.  I recommend checking those out.  I’m a WTOO bride and I love it!

Have you tried Casablanca? I feel like their stuff is somewhat similar to Watters sometimes…

@ckow85: I don’t know if there are others beyond the website, but I have to say, you’ve got to try them on.  I hate my dress on the website – would NEVER get near it….but obviously I love it on me in real life.  I also agree with the PP about Casablanca, too – they have some really beautiful dresses at a reasonable price and similar to Watters styles.

You could try pre-owned.

Have you called Pearl’s Place to check their pricing?  I purchased a Watters dress and the price at Pearl’s Place was $450 lower than the dress shop.

I went with a Watters long bridesmaids dress in ivory. I just tried it on for the first time last week! The construction is not as heavy as a wedding dress but with a crinoline slip I think the A-line will be the fullness I am looking for. I don’t like a lot of sparkle, but if you wanted to add something you could find a nice sash on etsy with bling! 

Hope that helps! Oh and forgot to mention I spent $230!

You should look at Mikaella Bridal, she has some styles that I think you would like. Look at 1556, it’s from a previous collection, also look at 1650, 1654, 1656 and 1659. Most Mikaella gowns are under $1500 closer to $1000

This Mori Lee has a similar pleating detail as the Watters Tyler. I don’t know the exact cost of this dress but every Mori Lee I tried on was less than 800 dollars and I tried on the big, elaborate ball gowns.
