The gowns you’ve posted are all stunning. 

To start off with, I would look at local bridal stores and see which designers they stock. 

Then, you can look at the designers websites and see if you like anything. If not, cast a wider net and see if other stores do other designers ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck in your hunt!

I just googled “short sleeve crepe bridal dresses” and Davids’ Bridal has special offers on three dresses. Prices range from $1250 to $250.  Silhouettes are sheath and a-line.  Otherwise I suggest that you try to find a seamstress on etsy or at your local alterations or sewing center.  The silhouettes look fairly simple so it wouldn’t be a hard dress.  My dress has a crepe skirt and it is a thick, heavy crepe which might be a little warm for a summer wedding.(Tara Keely 2450).

I have no idea if this is in your price range as it’s a new line – this brand is usually in the 2-3k range for its regular line – but Martina Liana has a bodysuit and crepe skirt in its separates collection that look like what you want:

 You have the same criteria as me so look at my dress! It’s an Essense of Australia dress, crepe fabric, clean lines, killer train, low back dress. It comes with the illusion netting and buttons and I’m going to add lace around to make more of an illusion back like shown in the picture (Mostly because I’m having a winter wedding and I felt a bit exposed in it!) 

not sure of price in the states but it was by far the cheapest one I tried on (about $1800 AUD) and the only one that ticked all my boxes.

Theres another crepe dress by the same designer too which doesn’t have the buttons up the back. Good luck!

It’s not silk crepe but poly crepe – you’re going to find it hard finding silk in your price range unless its preowned/sample/a really good deal. Possibly excepting J Crew/Nicole Miller, as others have mentioned.
