Oooh! that dress is beautiful.

 Have you considered looking for it used, or if not having the dress made by seamstress or dressmaker? 

What area are you based in?

Billie was MY dream dress too! I stalked it for a year and never once saw it for sale second-hand, so unfortunately you may just have to pay full retail price for it. I couldn’t afford it so I had to pick a different dress for my wedding. I hope you get it, it’s a fantastic dress!

Melissa Sweet totally has the tea length covered. All of her dresses are to die for! Have you thought about looking at high end bridesmaids dresses in white. They usually don’t have the long train that is typical with some wedding gowns. In the meantime, check out this amazing post on tea length dresses: http://kenziekate.blogspot.com/2007/11/time-for-tea.html

Here is the website referenced in the blog post: http://stephaniejamescouture.com/ and you’ll find all sorts of tea length dresses! My pesonal favorite (besides the Melissa Sweet dress you picked out) is the Audry.

annie — I’m in the Milwaukee area, and have heard great things about Becky’s Custom Sewing in Bay View.  She really does alterations, but maybe she would consider doing a custom dress for you?  She did alterations for a bridesmaid dress for me and was extremely reasonable (and nice, too!).  Just a thought.  A google search of her name should bring up her info.  Give her a call and chat — it’s worth a shot!
