So I really love the Claire Pettibone Chantilly and Sky Between Branches- really I just love the back of the dress though and I can’t afford the C. P. anyway. I also love the Veluz Reyes but I can’t afford it and don’t know where to get it anyway. Does anyone know of a nice alternative dress that is reasonably priced? I definitely want a mermaid dress and I would love it if the dress had beading. Should I get one made? Where? I haven’t heard back from Jasmines at all and its been two weeks- I am reluctant to go with a shop so overbooked. I have to have my back completely covered- no keyholes! I don’t want a bolero either. Anyone know of any good dresses or shops? I combed the old threads and didn’t find anything unfortunately. Anyone know of a dressmaker in the US? Any help would be appreciated.

@junebride2014: What does reasonably priced mean to you?

@junebride2014: not as beautiful as the Clare pettibone ones and maybe a little over your budget but I tried this sottero and midgley one and it is AMAZING on, pics don’t do it justice.

That one is very pretty but yes a little over my budget still. I am thinking about having one made but it’s scary because for every person who loved their dress there is another who has a horror story. I would like to get it made in the US if possible but I don’t know of any custom dress makers in the US. I have tried ETSY but people kept pressuring me to change it to something conveinent for them to make- a pattern they have already made before- and wanted me to choose from lace they already had instead of trying to replicate my vision. Gosh I wish I had more money for a dress 🙁
