I agree with PP. Check online at used wedding shops. Even kijiji or something might have one! I was able to sell my brand new wedding dress on kijiji. And, if they are in your area, you can buy it on the spot! 🙂

Both of these from CSB have a corset back:

Sweetheart, size 14, $250:


Unknown designer, size 18, $200:

 This one is more expensive, but it’s been in their inventory for a few months, so maybe you could explain the circumstances and see if they can lower the price to move it. Maggie Sottero, size 14, $400:

Nicole Miller could be an option. My dress has a corset back and they may have more that have a corset back as well (although mine is the only one I tried like that). I ordered my dress on a Saturday and received it in the mail the next Friday (although they tried to deliver it on Wednesday but needed a signature). They have a bridal salon in Soho if you’re interested but it depends on the type of dress you’re looking for. Nicole Miller dresses tend to be more on the non-traditional side of the bridal fashion spectrum.

Also, have you tried David’s Bridal online?  It looks like they do both two-day and overnight shipping.

And remember, a seamstress can put a corset back into practically any dress.  So if you find one you like, just take it to someone to be altered…?

Buy consignment, or an off-the-rack dress from a department store or some-such. You’re not going to be able to get a bridal salon dress in 2 weeks.

@Jenniphyr:  If you look two posts above–the OP did find a gown in a bridal salon.


OP your dress is gorgeous. I’m happy it worked out for you.
