kelbrimale :  ugh these are both so f-ing gorgeous.

I don’t have alternatives, sorry- imo the craftsmanship and materials make a huge difference, so if you want those things, either make the splurge or buy a sample. 

But if it’s just the style you’re after, another bee might have good suggestions for you. 

Just love both of these dresses! Post a pic of yourself in them when you get ready to choose, we love dress pics:-)

kelbrimale :  I think there’d be quite a few Hayley Paige dresses in that price range:

kelbrimale :  Reem Acra just nails that bridal but modern and feminine without being too sexy. That last one (13) is to die for!

Also like the HP dresses PP posted. Love Berta, but they tend to be so specific, they kind of dictate a whole vibe on top of being more sexy than you want.

Beautiful dresses, though, all the way around- you can’t go wrong.

kelbrimale :  Try them all on, and post pics here! You never know what dress might surprise you.  Plus, it helps other bees and it’s fun:-)

The reem acra domenica was my runner up dress! I ended up with a beautiful Anne barge so maybe look into hers. They are a bit more simple/understated than Reem but so very elegant. 

As far as budget, you really do get what you pay for here. My dress was over $7,000 with tax. I believe the reem acras are in this range as well (I think I was quoted $7500 for domenica?) but they are really stunning in the workmanship and materials are really unparalleled.

I tried on many dresses in the $1000 to $4000 range and it’s really not comparable. After trying on those Reem Acras, Marchesas, and Anne Barges, the watters/Pronovias price point just didn’t cut it for me!! Everything felt tacky and cheap. The last few you posted are gorgeous in pics but if you go to try on the watters and HPs I honestly think you’ll notice right away – it’s night and day  

Good luck! And check out Anne Barge (though I’m biased!!!)
