I like that it is structured and form fitting— but appears to be thick enough that it won’t show every single crevace! I am open to different necklines, different straps, and different material. My budget is well below $1,000– ideally absolutely no more than $600.
Thank you so much!

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!

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.

Wow, thank you all so much! I really appreciate all your suggestions– I just have to go through all of them now! 🙂
SkiBee0515 – Thanks for showing me the picture, and SkiBee0515 and larissakay: Thank you for telling me about the dress in person. To me, I think the dress looks great on you– but I do have overall reservations about buying from an urban outfitters/ anthropoligie relative– I’ve never been impressed with those stores’ quality (especially for their prices)!

To me, I think the dress looks great on you– but I already had reservations about buying from an urban outfitters/ anthropoligie relative– I’ve never been impressed with those stores’ quality (especially for their prices), so I’m not surprised that BHLDN is similar in that regard!
