Hey everyone — I’m getting a little frustrated. I keep seeing these gorgeous dresses on Pinterest but they aren’t sourced and so it’s hard to figure out where to find them or something similar. Basically I’m trying to find a blush or non-white long sleeved wedding dress that is not fitted through the hips but is also not SUPER poofy. Does anyone know of anything like that out in the wide world of weddings? Ideal budget is $1000 or under, but can go up to $1500 for the absolute perfect thing.

I think the 2nd gown is Hayley Paige Hayley gown. The third pic looks a lot like the Willowby Amelie gown. The Amelie is closer to your budget. If you want a blush dress you might want to consider adding a topper to a bridesmaid dress or taking a dress with a tulle skirt and substituting a layer or two of pink tulle. Or check out Etsy for a dressmaker.

Im wearing this for my wedding. BHLDN decided it’s a MOB dress but it feels very bridal to me (and would not be pleased if my mom wore it to my wedding!). The beading is GORGEOUS in person–its beaded over lace. The front and back are fully lined but not to the beading, so it could definitely be easily altered if you wanted more of an illusion-look (like the sleeves). The skirt has a single crinoline layer, not super poofy by any means, just enough to give a little structure. And it’s way under budget 😉

What do you think of champagne? I have the Willowby amelie dress, and it’s white over champagne. I think it can be custom ordered in blush, but I think the price brand new is $1600. I’m not sure because I bought preowned.
If you are willing to buy without trying, you could look at Milamira or Cathy Telle or some others on Etsy.
ETA: yes, the amelie dress can be ordered in blush! http://watters.com/Product/Willowby/54719/

Any chance you want to sell me your Amelie dress after your wedding? haha
I’ve seen that one before it’s just impossible to track down a place to try it on. BHLDN doesn’t carry it anymore.

I am a long sleeve dress lover too! Maggie Sottero and Allure both have long sleeve options. Also Davids Bridal has some that are inexpensive.

you could go separates from BHLDN. This topper and this dres would be under $500 together (the dress is a bridesmaids dress officially):
This by Stella York is white or ivory lace and tulle, but the satin under layer is available in sable and cafe colours – whatever they mean.
The Amelie dress you posted above is available with a blush or champagne underlay as well!
