Ok, ladies, so here’s the deal. I have always dreamed of getting married in a lace wedding gown with a keyhole back, but thought that I couldn’t after my cousin got married in the lace keyhole back dress from David’s Bridal . So, I thought that I should steer completely away from lace, so I got the Wtoo Kensley gown- with pockets! Although the gown is gorgeous, I just can’t stop thinking about the beautiful look of the keyhole back of a lace dress, and am now on the search for one within budget, but my wedding is a month away!!
Although my cousin wore the dress from David’s Bridal, it’s within my price range (would it be bad to wear the same dress? She got married over 2 years ago). I also loveee Watters’ Greta gown, as well as Wtoo’s Lycette gown, especially because there is more lace on the dresses, but can’t find them in any stores where I live! I would need a size 6 or 8 in ivory….any suggestions?? Or is anyone selling a dress similar to this look?

Unfortunately, I can’t see the pictures of the dresses you posted and I don’t know your budget, but someone just posted this on a classifieds ad:
Check KimmySumShuga’s post
She’s selling a lace keyhole back dress that has a tulle overlay that would make it different enough from your cousin’s dress, but with plenty of lace and a unique character to it.

If that’s the dress that you want and it’s in your pricerange, GO FOR IT!! Your cousin might notice, but the overall possibility of anybody else noticing is slim. What they would notice instead would be your glow from feeling beautiful like you have always dreamed of :).
But if you can find another dress like the one from DB, that would make your mind more at ease, do that too. But if you are really worried I would just ask your cousin, I’m sure she wouldn’t care, especially since it was two years, not two months ago! Just get whatever you want to get, and don’t worry who else has worn it in the past 🙂

Found the dress of my dreams in LACE!! Now I need to sell my first love:
It’s a Kinsie Wtoo Gown by Watters in white, and is gorgeous! It is a size 4, has a sweetheart neckline, and is an A-line and fitted at the waist. The back dipps down into a V where there are buttons cascading all the way down the Chapel train! it has a removable ruffle collar as well, which can really make the Southern look dramatic! Oh, and did I mention it has POCKETS?! I paid $800.00 for the dress, which was a real steal, but now I am willing to sell it for $500.00. It is brand new with the tags and with no alterations!

While I wouldn’t let your cousin’s dress keep you from wearing a lace keyhole, I personally would stay away from the same dress she wore. That’s just me.
Have you considered looking at Allure dresses? They’re pretty much known for lace dresses, and I consider them to be pretty reasonably priced (considering they’re lace). All of these have a keyhole back:
I’m wearing a lace Allure and I LOVE it. Just picked it up yesterday and had my first fitting. Here’s my dress:
