I’m sorry I don’t have any helpful advice! I just wanted to say that dress is STUNNING 😍. I hope you can find something just as beautiful!

Meganquita : When is your wedding?  If you have some time up your sleeve, I would keep an eye out on all the second hand websites.  Some of them are even new or samples.  I would setup notifications in case this one gets posted.

Otherwise, stop trying on dresses out of your budget! lol

Scour Ebay. My best friend got a beautiful dress from Ebay for $128 that was the same as the $2000 dress she wanted and the quality was great!

Meganquita :  I’m pretty sure Preowned does, it comes up as an option when you go on their website, you just have to make a login 🙂

Just a word of warning – if it ain’t got the support you want, don’t buy it. From a bride who went through in built corset woes.

Meganquita :  I know it might sound crazy but you can search that dress on google and Instagram and just ask people if they would be willing to sell their dress..: I did it on here, I wanted the Maggie dress called Jade and was not willing to pay $1300 for it and I got it preowned for $750… didn’t even need to have alterations.

UK-bee :  yeah – I second this. If you’re anything bigger than a B, dresses like this mean you suffer the whole day.

Meganquita :  I’d contact Etsy seamstresses and see if they make anything similar – and if they would modify their dress to be closer to this? I think for legal reasons you can’t make the exact same dress – but something similar shouldn’t be too difficult.

UK-bee :  I agree with these two!

I would look for a talented dressmaker who can work with you to make something inspired by this dress, but unique, and with the structure to support you.
