It is gorgeous! I haven’t seen anything like that with the sleeves.. it’s not very popular these days. I thought I’d go with sleeves, but wound up in a completely different direction.

This is just a couple things I saw on a website to give you an idea or direction:

I’d google and research or see if anyone on Etsy could make it or maybe Jasmine’s Bridal Shop?

@kirabee:  You can always find a strapless/thin strap dress and wear an opaque bolero over it. You should check out Rosa Clara, San Patrick, Pronovias, La Sposa, Aire Barcelone, etc. (not too expensive, but very regal designs). 

Rosa Clara Brenda & Aixa

Pronovias Amatista

Rosa Clara Belinda & Belice

    

San Patrick Rociera & Alegria

The whole sleeves thing is actually pretty common in LDS dresses, google mormon bridal gowns and there are a number of designers who cater to the more conservative style required for a temple wedding but are still super cute!

@kirabee:  Not sure why your post stuck out to me so much, but everytime I look at wedding dresses, I’ve been looking for something like that picture! Found this: http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/view/27031/Other-Size-10.html and it looks really similar other than the beading on the neckline, which could be added easily. I does have a V shaped bodice, but I couldn’t help sharing!!

Hope you find your dream dress!

This Allure has a similar shape, sleeves, banded waist, and full skirt.  You could probably work with a tailor to open the neckline and de-poof the skirt, and obviously you can always add embellishments.

I’m not shocked the designer is in Utah – the dress I like is by a designer in Utah where they do a lot of LDS dresses.  I predict these kind of dresses will be the next trend.

The saturation with strapless dresses has to come down eventually and I think these are going to back in the trend rotation very soon.

@kirabee:  I live in NYC – I have salons every few blocks yet I’m still booking a roundtrip ticket to Salt Lake City for my dress.  Unreal.

@kirabee:  No – I’m an agnostic bride that thinks the LDSs have it right when it comes to modest fashion Wink

I know you were looking for a designer dress but a lot of Bees have been happy going the replica route.
