The picture of Dabra is not very good – I can’t tell what it really looks like, so I looked at the stock photo of Dabra, and I found similar dresses to it…

 

This one is $460.. it’s not quite as full I think, but it has the applique on the tulle.

This one is $525 – bit more of a mermaid shape.

This is $483, but it’s got a rouched bodice.

This is $168, and it’s the closest I could find.

 

Hope this helps!

@booka345: My cousin ordered one that just came in from Dressily, and she loved it.  The beading was a little different, but that wasn’t a dealbreaker.

I agree you should not panic and take a week to let things sink in about the dress you tried on that’s in your budget. It is beutiful and you really can’t go wrong with it, but I don’t want you to have dress regret…so I think you should take a breather and get back out there. Put this dress on your top contender list.

 

My dress is similar to the one you want..not nearly as much tulle or detail…and more of a mermaid style than a drop waist..but take a look at mine and you will see ther are others out there that might fit into what you dream of and can afford. Mine was not under 500.00 but It I tried on similar styles in drop waist ball gown that were within that range.  I ended up going mermaid cuz I wanted that sexy look. Anwayzz..just take it easy, you will find something you love. Dont’ get hung up on a dress you’ve never even laid eyes on or tried on.

have you checked preowned sites like preownedweddingdresses.com, oncewed.com, recycledbride.com, etc? or craigslist? you might be able to find your dream dress used or as a sample on one of those sites if you have a fair deal of time before your wedding?

 I thought the first one is seriously beautiful, and then I saw your Dabra pic – woah!  I love the Dabra!  And although the first dress is beautiful, it’s a completely different dress, and if you truly love the Dabra, then I think you should keep looking for something more similar to it.  You can do a search on the replica dresses on here, and find out which ones people had good experiences with.  I second the preownedweddingdresses.com suggestion.  I purchased my Vera Wang from that website, the original price was $6K, and I got it for $1400.  Good luck!
