I hear you!  No beading at all for me, but I did go with crystal drops earrings and a sparkley brooch to liven things up!  If you are looking for some embellishment on you rgown, you could try looking at Maggie Sottero gowns – some of those are very understated and beautiful.

I’m not a fancy, sparkly kind of girl either AND I’m on a tight budget.  Here’s a link to the dress I’m wearing.  It’s a bridesmaid dress and $163 but I think it’s beautiful and elegant.  Maybe try something like this.

i went for an all-lace dress with no sequins and no glitter. 🙂 it was from watters. they’re more affordable than other designers and have beautiful dresses.

I am not sure what your budget is, but Reem Acra makes some dresses with beading that is not over the top.

When I started looking, I thought I wanted something really simple without beading or poofing.  My cousin (and MOH) made me  try on a beaded ball gown.  I resisted and said it would be a waste of time, but she insisted.  I loved it.  It wasn’t overly beaded but certainly had some sparkle!  

 In the end I chose a Judd Waddell without beading but I am planning to wear some sparkly earrings and bracelet.  I am also thinking of getting a veil with some delicate beading on the edge, but I haven’t decided for sure.

Oh, one of the dresses I tried on and loved (even though it was a little out of my price range) was the Kenneth Poole "Aria" dress.  It has some beading on the front (but not as heavy as some of his styles) and a GORGEOUS train in the back.  If your budget allows, you might want to look at it.  It is a beautiful and flattering gown.

I got my dress from Sophia Tolli.  It has the tiniest bit of beading on both hips, but otherwise is just satin with some rusching.  She has some bead-y dresses, but many that are not.

I appreciate your delimma.

I got my dress at David’s Bridal.  It had mostly pearl beading- with just a little glitter on the bust.  I tried on lots of dresses at DB that either didn’t have beading or had minimal beading.

One idea if you really can’t find beading that you like is to get a dress without beading and buy the embelishments seperately.  You can buy beaded embelishment that can be sewn to the dress.

I knew I wanted simplistic, and that pointwas driven home all the more when I saw what you described — uber-glittered gowns!  I knew I didn’t want the expense or heavy weight of that for my wedding. 

I fell in love with Melissa Sweet gowns — they’re simple, but beautiful, and the fabric is usually the point of interest — ruffles, ruching, pleats, etc.
