I’d reach out to Mrs. Snowpea as she had her dress custom made. 

Also, look at bridesmaid’s dresses and in the party dress sections of high end department stores as you might be able to get something off the rack for less money!  When I was looking for a wedding dress I didn’t set out for tea lenght.  If I’d known that’s what I’d end up doing, I might have started looking places other than bridal gown stores.

I agree with Mrs. Onion, try bridesmaids dresses. While we were shopping for bridesmaids dresses at Jenny Yoo, I also noticed a lot simple and elegant wedding dresses as well as bridesmaids dresses that could be purchased in ivory or white that would make beautiful wedding gowns.

If you’re interested in custom, one of my reception dresses was made by Chrissy Wai-Ching out in Seattle and it was under $1,000. She is fantastic and has a lot of experience working long distance with brides. She provides unlimited alterations until you get the perfect fit. I also blogged about her a few times on WB.
