cubiebee:  as for coming up for custom…I’m nervous about it!  I picked heavy matte satin as I loved this in the dresses I tried. I paid for a fabric upgrade.  I asked for a long train as I liked those and trying on that eve dress showed me I loved bateau neckline so went for that in the topper. And the Stephanie allin dresses told me how brilliant an in built corset is! So im having that added to the dress when it comes from China. The bow ideas came from Jesus piero. And the covered buttons down the back was on that eve dress too.  One of the dress shops plonked a very long ribbon veil and it just made even slimline dresses so I’ve gone with that to give it some wow.   Here are the inspiration photos I sent to them. It’s nerve wracking though. Great for budget but if I had a bigger dress budget I would have kept looking for one I can be sure of from trying on!

 

and this is me in that actual pronovias dress. I do still think about it and wonder if it’s still there. It was £700 in the sample sale.  

Ignore wonky neckline here

cubiebee:  That one is Rosa Clara Brenda–it’s 2013, and I don’t see it on the site anymore, though. 🙁 But maybe you could luck out with a sample?

cubiebee:  no idea! I’m awaiting 2nd lot of mid production photos after the started a dress the first time around in the wrong fabric. From what other bees say, it’s fairly fast once they get going. And as theres no lace or appliqué, I think that speeds it up. Can’t wait anyway.

and yup the dress was an operation to move about. After this pic they added another petticoat. It really looked magical like that.  If I could have had two dresses I’d have gone for it!

This thread is the only one I’ve seen that actually makes me think twice about my dress! Those are some beautiful dresses.

cubiebee:  I looked really good in Oscar too, but I didn’t want my mom to spend that much. I then went to Rosa Clara and fell in love for 1/3 of the price. I ended up with the Encanto (the train detaches for dancing):

cubiebee:  They are based in Barcelona. Luckily, we have a Rosa Clara store where I live. But it looks like they are stocked in a few places in the UK: http://www.rosaclara.es/en-gb/find-your-shop/

My dress is Rosa Clara Two, which is in your price range. Actually, you could fly to Spain, buy a dress and maybe have some money left over.

Maybe someone has already suggested this — but it sounds like a big tulle skirt plus cami/bodysuit would work really well for you!

I love the look of this top plus the long skirt pictured in one of the pictures. I wonder if they could make it for you? (site currently just has short skirts).

So many cool skirts on etsy!

Or a custom dress (maybe something like this with a different top?)

cubiebee:  if you like rosa clara, look at dresses by jesus peiro and dutch brand marylise. Jesus Peiro is commonly available in Europe.
