First and foremost – what is your wedding dress budget?

2nd question – have you tried on dresses? Are you sure you want ALL of these details? 3rd question – since your wedding is over a year away, do you have a venue? The venue & “feel” of your wedding will play a role in picking your dress.

If you know exactly what you want… this could be a good time to hire someone local (with experience!) to create the dress you’re imagining for you!  It’s scary not to try on a dress beforehand, but I have friends who have done it and gotten exactly what they wanted for far cheaper than most people spend on a dress.  It’s worth at least having a consultation meeting.

Enzoani Evadale

 

And that’s as close as I could come.  But it’s a decent start, you could take it to a seamstress for more crystals

Ah, my dream dress:

A Lazaro dress – everything you’re asking for except the asymmetrical waistline. 

However, unless you’ve tried on similar dresses, you might not actually like this style on.  My friend tried this Lazaro on (we were BOTH in looooove with it before) and it just wasn’t as flattering as it is on this super tall model. 

Have you considered shopping at an actual store and buying the sample?  They usually offer a 20-30% discount if you buy the sample.

Beautiful dresses. I know some designers can custom a dress using a top from one and the skirt from another. I would look into that! Also, you can always ask your a seamstress to add bling to the bodice?

@Blanche:  That’s my dress!  Smile I think you’re right though, based on the description, it’s a great match.  I fell in love with the raw edged organza and that was what sold it for me.  I also loved the lace bodice. I was able to purchase it as a sample for $875.  It was originally $1499. Maybe it’s a good time of year to look! You could definitely have more beading added, or get a shiny beaded belt. They had me try one on at my fitting, but I was actually looking for a little less bling.  It was also a lot lighter weight than a lot of the dresses I tried with similar shaped skirts which was really nice.  Good luck!!

@Blanche:  I found Enzoani Egypt that is just like the Evadale only with more bling!

 

@Mata_Hari:  Hope you like this one… my dress is Enzoani and I absolutely LOVE it!

I LOVE the high neck dress. It’s very elegant and not strapless.

I have very similar dreams for my dress!  Less bling than you potentially… but asymmetrical, dropped waist, rough organza, probably sweetheart neckline.  Still searching 🙂
