I work in bridal and we carry the Essense of Australia D1702. We just got a new dress from designer Mori Lee which is pretty similar, might be worth checking but in all honesty I prefer the EOA to it but I will let you decide for yourself, the Mori Lee is a little less expensive than the D1702 as a bonus.

Have you seen Wtoo Agatha? http://watters.com/Product/WtooBrides/13704 Their Love Marley Penelope also has a similar look, although it has an illusion neckline: http://watters.com/Product/LoveMarley/53707 

Both are around $1000. 

And, speaking of Mori Lee, have you stumbled across this one? It’s gorgeous; classic while still very dramatic, the drape is beautiful, it has a really defined/ deep sweetheart neckline, and I got constant feedback from brides that it looked more expensive than it was. I have to agree; the silhouette (if not the details) is very vintage Dior. Especially striking in the caramel/ ivory colorway pictured. I forget the MSRP of this one, but I want to say it was under $1500. http://www.morilee.com/bridals/bridal/2674

The EoA dress reminds me of the Watters Sydney dress.  I think it is around $2300 so would have to check out preowned sites.

MadameX:  I second the 2674!! I’m not done dress shopping yet (planning a trip to the Reading Bridal District next month!) but the ML 2674 is definitely my number one right now. The MSRP at the salon I tried it on at is $1480, but RK Bridal and New York Bride have it as $1270…I’m sure that means it’s somewhere between the two prices.

I have tried this one on and the Wtoo Agatha and like the Wtoo a lot more (I’m petite and was drowning in the EoA lol).

There is also this gorg Stella York that is very similar (same company – I think). TheKnot.com says it’s $750-1000 too!
