I am in love with every Claire Pettibone dress I see. Every gown of hers is gorgeous and the style and simplicity Im going for (especially her velvet gown) Unfortunately I cant afford them, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a designer with her style but more affordable? She’s very vintage paris inspired….and Im looking for a mermaid or sheath silhouette.

Have you considered buying one of her dresses that has been used or is a sample? You can check out websites like http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/ for example.

Are you willing to buy a previously worn gown? You might be able to find your Claire Pettibone for cheaper if you use some of the websites mentioned on Weddingbee, like onewed.com or even craig’s list.
Your other alternative is to get a "replica" or inspired gown. You can find out more information here.
I hope this helps!
