This is my first post though I have been through a lot of threads whilst going through my dress hunt. The problem that I have found with hunting for a dress online however, is that all the dresses that I’m falling in love with, I am having trouble finding them in shops where I can try them on. They are either from collections a few years ago or are by designers that are less common.
This is where I would like to tap into the Weddingbees knowledge and wealth of experience!
Dresses that I have fallen in love with include:
– Enzoani Blue – Brighton (2009)
– Pronovias – Ronda (2009)
– Allure C153
I am based in Toronto, Canada.
Do any of you know dresses that are similar (i.e. v-neck, lace or tulle, lace beading or lace applique, mermaid/trumpet) that I would have a better chance of locating? OR even, do you know any place that stocks these styles?
Thanks so much!
ps. My back up dress is the Casablanca 1975. Not a bad backup but I would really like to try some of these too.

@KatNYC2011: That’s not a bad one too.

Ronda was in my top 3, so pretty! You’d have to buy it used though.
Adela (more sweetheart than v)
Alcala has illusion straps like Ronda

I’m also from the GTA, but I went to Gatineau to dress shop with my mom & sister.
My dress is really similar, it’s Allure 8825; lace trumpet with straps, which I removed to reveal the sweetheart neckline beneath – better for my body type. I bought it at Dominique Levesque in Gatineau, and though I know it’s probably too far away; I would highly recommend the store – amazing service.

This is Casablanca 2030. It will be for sale in 3 weeks after my 10/08/11 wedding if you like it. 🙂 It’s Spring 2011 so maybe a store will have it?

@Annabelle86: I maybe might be that has the cincinnati? If not, would you please let me know who you saw it on if possible? I’ve had a hard time finding others with my dress and would love to see it on other real brides and not just the stock photo (which I agree isn’t so awesome). 🙂
@Tickie: My dress by Blue by Enzoani fits a lot of your criteria and looks astonishingly similar to the Watters dresses posted above. You could definitely add a belt with some sparkle if you want the bling (which I’ll be doing for the reception- I like shiny things too haha).
