They’re beautiful! I looked at Etsy too, I would try on similar styles if you haven’t to make sure it’s the “look” you like, and maybe try to get measured while there so you know your exact measurements by a pro for Etsy! Also make sure there are lots of good reviews for that designer for their dresses, I noticed some had fab reviews for their items but none for dresses, so definitely do the research first! You’d have a totally unique, hand-made dress and that is pretty awesome!

nt0129 :  I agree with PP that you should try to go to a bridal shop and try on dress styles just to make sure you’ll like how you look. I was so sure of the kind of dress i wanted and in the end, i picked a dress i didn’t think i would after trying dresses on. Just a piece of friendly advice!

Original post, I likes the Grace Bohemian. After seeing the update, cap sleeve lace is the front runner for me! Both very beautiful dresses!

The second link is my favorite and I too, am an Etsy bride! My dress was made to measurements but still needed alterations. My seamstress added a hook and eye that the designer did not think to add. Overall the quality and fabric is amazing. Since I never met the designer in person, I’d say that her team did a very good job. Just missed a few minor details (hook and eye in a couple of places.) For me, Etsy was the closest thing I could find to my dream dress! Good luck! My dress is below ๐Ÿ™‚ also cost around 800.

nt0129 :  Keep us posted on which one you choose! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Just something to think about when choosing custom made-to-order measurements versus a standard size, I went with a standard size and totally recommmend it. I have read a lot of comments that people spent more money getting custom measurements in hopes that they wouldn’t need alterations, and had to get alterations anyways. So if the custom size is more money, I would just go with a standard one!

The Grace bohemian wedding dress – without a doubt it gets my vote! It is so unique and different from the cookie cutter wedding dresses out there, all from the second set looks “generic bridal shop – like” to me. I would not buy on Etsy if I was after that bridal shop look. 

I know the shop (ordered from them myself and received by now:)) and they sell all pieces separately too, so you could pair it with a different bottom, whether from them or elsewhere. I personally do not really like the slit in the skirt for myself, so I would probably go with a skirt like this instead: https://www.etsy.com/listing/480937018/heather-bridal-tulle-skirt-white-tulle?ref=shop_home_active_5

 

They don’t have standard sizes though, everything is made to measure and I had to provide like 20 measurements  and the owner had me retake several as she noticed discrepancies. Effort paid of though, didn’t need a single alteration, not even the length.

Second one. The first one reminds me of a flower girls dress. I feel like the second one, personally, has a more bridal feel and looks expensive.
