I am in love with the rosa clara two line! Typically rosa clara dresses are really expensive but the two line is within your budget.  I wore the belga from the 2010 collection and it was amazing.  They also make more sheath style dresses with gorgeous trains.  If you are a lace and beading girl though you need to find someone who carries it because you won’t be disappointed ๐Ÿ™‚


Here’s my dress, probably a little too a-line for your taste but the lace was to die for



My other favorite and 2nd runner up: Rosa clara cima

@SS2012:  Hi lace and beading bride!   ๐Ÿ™‚  I have a Signature gown (was made by a private designer in Richmond, VA).  It is a strapless, fit and flare style with gorgeous lace and beading.  I got the dress as a sample, so a few of the beads (pearls!) are loose but this can easily be fixed, and I never actually got to wear the dress at a wedding  ๐Ÿ™ It has a sweetheart neckline.  I don’t have any pictures online, but if you are interested I can definitely take some of me in it and also as it looks hung up on a hanger on my camera phone and upload them onto here.  The gown was originally $1300, I paid $1000.  I am willing to negotiate on the price for sure so let me know if any of this sounds good to you!  ๐Ÿ™‚  Thanks for reading!

Have you tried casablanca 1995? The pictures online don’t really do the dress justice…it is beautiful in person! It has subtle sparkle all over and the lace is gorgeous. I think it would be in your price range too. Here is a pic of me trying it on:

Casablanca 1995 absolutely stole my heart, and I was set on buying it, until I tried on the 1914. I was SO dissapointed with the trumpet fit, being set on a mermaid and one of the reasons why I fell for the 1995. HOWEVER (!!!!!!) the owner of the store suggested having the 1914 altered into a mermaid… the best of both worlds!!! It was already a size too big, so the alterations will be easy! I ended up buying a sample gown (and you can’t tell) for $500, and alterations will run about $180 total!!! WIN!!!! I hope this helps!!!

And check the resale websites for a new one with tags, and still be WAY under budget!!!

Maggie Sottero Gatsby (my dress)? Definitely lace and beaded, but it’s a slim sheath rather than mermaid/fit-n-flare… though it could probably be modified. Here’s the beading and a non-fluffed train… and my price after tax was around $1100.

I aso fell in love with the Casablance 1914 but the only thing I didn’t like was that I felt like it was too A-line.  I want something with a little bit more of a mermaid shape.  The bridal consultant said Casablanca is very good a customizing dresses and that we might be able to reference the cut of another Casablanca dress.  I might try this.
