Very pretty! It’d be tough to find a gown exactly like that for that price point, other than literal vintage/thrifted finds because lace is usually pretty expensive to make.

 

What draws you to this dress specifically? Is it the cap sleeves, the deep V, the scalloped edges, the horizontal panels in the skirt? Just the general flowy feel of it?

 

This one is $600, but it reminds me of the one you posted:

As for the used option – what size are you?

I’m working with a family friend to create a wedding dress, so I can also attest to the cost of lace. Lace is very expensive, and the nice lace that looks flowy and romantic (instead of stiff) usually uses entirely natural fibers and easily costs more than $50/yard (a lot of it is closer to $100) and multiple yards are required.

If you want an all-over lace dress, your best bet may be trying to find a pre-owned gown, or hitting up some vintage thrift shops (sometimes you can find something amazing).

Best of luck.
