I am so sorry your dress didn’t turn out as you’d hoped. My advice would be: keep looking! I got my dress 6 months out and didn’t need to pay rush fees.

One thing I would keep in mind is that certain things on certain dresses can be adjusted. When I was trying on dresses, my consultant would point out things that could be changed if I wanted. For instance, straps or sleeves could be added, illusions could be lined, necklines could be adjusted, modesty panels can be added to the front, etc. So if there’s one or two small things you don’t like about a dress you try on, ask your consultant if they’d be able to change it.

Have you looked at Maggie Sottero or Stella York/Essense of Australia? They range from $700-$2000 USD.

This isn’t quite as geometric, but it comes in ivory over nude with low back:

This one doesn’t have as much contrast, but has low back and more chunky/geometric lace:

Also more lacy, but lots of color options:

Idk but I kinda like this one:

Also I might be biased because this is my dress, but it comes in ivory over nude and is much higher contrast in person:

Not sure your price range but do you have anyone that carries Laudae in your area? Her style of dresses are stunning and a similiar style to what you’re looking for. I believe they are in the 2000-3000 Canadian range (1500-2300 USD). Her website and some photos: https://www.laudae.com

darlinglilred :  Thank you! I totally get it! I really wasn’t a fan of the allover lace over lace, which so many of them were. I liked mine because it was more scroll less flower, and slightly more open. But definitely more froofy than you’re going for!

I think I only saw 1 geometric pattern out of around 50 dresses I tried on. It doesn’t have quite as much contrast as I think you want, but it was pretty cool! It was a Blush by Hayley Page.

Where in Canada do you live? The Bride’s Project in Toronto has lots of pre-loved dresses, and proceeds of their sales go to Cancer. It might be worth checking out.

This is the first dress I thought of to suggest but not sure how you’ll feel about it.
