Girl, 

I’m getting a Jenny Packham replica made from Jasmine’s Bridal Shop. The Jenny Packham that I fell in love with (May Blossom) is $6,000. And that’s just not possible for me.

Jasmine’s made this Packham replica:

I just got my fabric samples in the mail, and I’ll be placing my order shortly. If you search the boards for Jasmine’s, there are a bunch of gals getting their dresses made by Jasmines. 

GIve it a look.

I hear ya!  My absolute dream dress is the Jenny Packham Foxglove!!!  Jasmine’s actually does a replica for a pretty good price… $500 I think?  In the end I went with something else myself, but check it out.

Not sure about prices, but these should be significantly cheaper than the Jenny Packhams.

Have you tried on either of the styles in person?

I’m a street 12-14, and I’ve tried on my dress (but mine is a full A line)- Jasmine’s makes it to your measurements, so I wouldn’t worry about it not fitting. But it would be helpful to try on a similar style at least.

@SingerOfAllSongs:  Wow, you aren’t kidding. I just google searched the entire state of Oregon, and nope, no Justice of the Peace. 🙁

Can you take a quick trip to San Frann?

Just kidding.

My 2 cents? Just go try on a bunch of sheath dresses in your size, and take notes. If you get it made from Jasmine’s, you can tweak whatever you don’t like.

Have you been to these stores? All in Portland, all with similar styles:

Cocoon Silk

Lena Medoyeff

The English Department

Embellish

Sarah Seven

 

i think your best bet would be one of these couture evening wear designers. I viewed their new collections in NYC a few weeks ago at the couture show (I am in the biz- and I live in Oregon). Google these:

terani couture

mac duggal

sherri hill

jovani

lara designs

Do you ever find yourself in Vancouver? I just did a quick google search and there are a few stores that carry Jenny Packham. I think it’s a 9 hour drive or so to Vancouver so not suggesting you leave right now or anything, but if you ever do go to Vancouver or find yourself near the border maybe you could try them on?
