Hi brides to be!
I’m pretty lost on where to start my search for a budget friendly dress. I am absolutely in LOVE with Jenny Packham dresses, but it’s about 5X my budget.
Any suggestions on stores that carry dresses for $800 and under? I live SoCal and can go to LA or OC.
I’m really hoping to find a similar style to her whimsical dresses; sheer cap sleeves, empire waist, flowly (not poofy) and a vintage feel to it.
I appreciate any advice 🙂

@MrsSkasick: Out of curiosity, have you considered having a dress made by Jasmine’s or DressilyMe? You can get a dress quite close to your dream dress that way. Otherwise, have you also thought of a preowned dress?

The only dress I can think of that has:
– Empire waist
– Flowy/A-line (not pouffy)
– Vintage feel
is a DB dress (T3299) — The picture was from a reviewer; here is the link: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Cap-Sleeve-Lace-Over-Satin-Gown-with-Illusion-Back-T3299
It may or may not be what you are looking for though:

Can you post a picture of some of the Justice of the Peace dresses you like?
Not sure if this is at all what you’re looking for…

@HisMoon: I was and maybe still am highly considering it! I’ve heard nothing but good reviews. But I’m sure you can understand my hesitation, it’s a big decision!
