Hello there ladies! This is my first post on WeddingBee 🙂
I was wondering, does anyone know of any designers who make dresses similar to Pnina Tornai? Silly me, I was browsing through dresses and fell in love with a Pnina, which is WELL out of my budget (budget being under $1000).
I love dresses constructed primarily out of tulle, and I love over-the-top sparkles… which is what led me to this Pnina:
I also really like this Impression dress, which is actually in my price range (this dress retails for ~$800):
I’m not sure how I feel about the strap, though.
Anyway, my question to you, ladies: have you stumbled across any similar dresses? Any primarily tulle gowns, or any gowns with the heavy beading/embroidery/etc. on the top (not necessarily tulle)? Any help would be much appreciated!

a lot of gowns have heavy beading on the top. i tried on a bunch of casablancas like that!
you should look at mrs. poodle’s dress (she made it herself) and mrs. ribbon’s dress (vera wang)…both have lots of tulle.

Thank you! I will definitely look at their dresses 🙂
I’m starting to get dress-dizzy, I think. I’ve looked at so many dresses that they’re all starting to blur together… which is what brought me here, haha! 🙂

This dress by Moonlight Bridals looks like the first Pnina you showed…

My dress has a tulle-like (I think it isn’t tulle…it seems finer than that, but has a similar effect) skirt, and I am in love. Justin Alexander

I love TULLE too! This one has been a recent on my list, its not tulle on the bottom but I am sure you could get it modified!

You should check out PC Mary’s! They have a ton of ~$800 tulle ballgowns. They have huge trains, though. With the one I was looking at, I was planning to chop it off :).

Yay, I’m just happy tulle gowns are still in style. 🙂 I got mine from a sample sale it’s a Pronovias Laica. From what I’ve seen tulle gowns were really popular a few years back, so if you look on preownedweddingdresses.com or bravobride.com you should find something in your price range with the tulle.

What about this one? It’s Blu by Enzoani “Darwin”. I tried this dress on and it’s gorgeous! Lots of tulle and bling!

With your budget in mind, I would say to try Vera Wang for David’s Bridal! She just launched with them so I’m not sure if they are in stores yet but you can definitely inquire!

How about this?
The sparkles aren’t over the top, but I looooove the sheer tulle on top of the all over sparkles. And belt or brooch would add even more sparkle! Gosh I like this dress. Man I really need to stop looking, lol!
