Honestly, you should have no problems finding a similar style at an affordable price. What is your budget?

@aliworthen:  Agree, the bodice looks FAB on you! Divine bust area.

I can’t really help with affordable options like this gown but I’m thinking Mori lee generally has similar styles at an affordable price.

Yes I would suggest Mori lee as well but don’t know if you will find anything new in the 500-600 range ?

You really should look at the bee’s classifieds section or at recycledbride.com, oncewed.com, and preownedweddingdresses.com. You could easily find a gently used, sample or brand new dress for hundreds less!

I had a similar budget, and I fell in love with a 1700 dollar dress, so I had mine made through Jasmines. If you feel comfortable with that, I highly recommend it, while they just shipped my dress (so I haven’t received it) they have sent me LOTS of pictures mid and post production, and it looks absolutely beautiful, just as beautiful as the original!

White by Vera Wang is similar. Or you could try Jasmine’s. I had a similar one made and posted about it on the bee from start to finish!

ITs beautiful! maybe look for discountinued dresses or sample dresses. I just bought mine which was a david trutera dress and i got pretty much for free thats how much of a discount i got. I couldnt believe it!

Also maybe ask the bridal salons what their policies are for sample dresses. Some give great deals.

I don’t know how flexible you are with your budget here is some idea i had for you. Also you can always see if they’ll give you some type of discount usually they can do 10% at trunk shows

this one i figured you could add a shinny belt


And here are a few more a little over but not by alot
