I tried this dress on, and honestly I wasn’t impressed. The lace feels much more stiff/rough in person than I was expecting. Also if you look at the dress just from the waist up (like most pictures on that day will be) this dress just looked like a lace tank top!

abkesq:  I love the Janey. A word of advice: I think there is a substantial quality difference between the BHLDN version and the Nicole Miller version. I know they’re supposed to be the same, but I tried it on at both salons and was amazed at how differently they were constructed and the lower quality finishes.

That being said, I’d recommend looking at secondhand dresses given your price point. I also was trying to stay under $1000 and fell in love with a Jenny Yoo dress (Jenny Yoo and Nicole Miller are partner companies). I huntered around at preownedweddingdresses.com until I found a dress that was a similar shape and fabric.

I know some of these are a little more than $600 but most all over lace wedding dresses start at about $1000. That’s why I also included some lace bridesmaids dresses (that come in white & ivory) that are way less, under $500.
