So, I posted a thread yesterday about bridesmaids dresses and everyone shared such beautiful dresses!!! I was hoping for some help with ideas on wedding dresses too.
I am going dress shopping for the first time with my mom this weekend. I know I want a lace dress in either A-line or fit and flare, but I can’t afford anything more than about $1200…at the absolute most.
Any ideas??? Show off your lace dress 🙂

This is mine. Lace and tulle. But it’s about $2300 unless you find it used.

Here’s mine! It’s A-line and available at David’s Bridal. However, it’s discontinued 🙁
With it being discontinued it was $599! I was so happy with the price.

@rachelmichelle: Wow that dress is breathtaking!
My dress was the Casablanca 2004. It looks like this:
But mine looked like this:
I added full sleeves and neckline (for religious purposes) and an a-line skirt. I knew when I saw the dress that for the neckline/sleeve issue it would be great because the top was already built up so adding a neckline/sleeves would not look “added on” but I always wanted an a-line. (Well really I’ve always wanted a ballgown but different story for a different time..) Well Casablanca does custom changes. The original dress was less than $1000 and with the changes (plus other alterations charges because of course it didn’t come perfect) it was about $1500. My absolute favorite part of my dress was the scalloping at my neckline.
ETA: I also cut the train off because I’m short and it’s just not my look but the train is gorgeous – sheer lace.

@star_dust: Thank you!! I can’t *wait* until September when mine gets here, in my size. <3
I just have to say, I *ADORE* your sleeves. I honestly think it looks even better on you with the sleeves than it does on the model!

My Maggie was about $1200 and there were many other Maggie’s or lace dresses that were cheaper than the one I chose… here she is… only bad thing is how much she is costing to get altered (taking in on the sides, hemming, bustle and possibly straps will be over $500 I think).
