HELP: Need similar but cheaper dresses!

I'm in love with Allure Bridals #8903. Low cut back and lace.. absolutely gorgeous. But it's like $1500. My limit is $1000.


Any suggestions for similar dresses that are in my price range?

have you looked at the preowned dress sites? bravo bride, oncewed, weddingbee classified? have you looked at netbride or bestbridalprices? have you called other shops in your area to see if they could get it cheaper? I think unique-vintage.com sells the allure line.


what about having it custom made? alot of brides have had luck with dressilyme(look under the forums tab then groups on this website) or etsy has tons of dress makers on there, jasmines bridal is another custom website.


heres two ads for that dress

Zeuster - I did see those two dresses, but I'm a 4 and have to look into if having that style tailored would be a problem, bc I know some dresses can't. 


 


Allbyfaith - Thank you! That second to last one is very pretty!

I have one more idea have you tried craigslist? sometimes if you look at the bigger cities bridal shops will advertise on there and have big sales. they will sell major brand dresses for 1/2 off. I saw a few of these ads on craigslist Los Angeles. I did not look to see where you were located. But maybe this will help.

I don't know if its to late but when are you getting married cause I bought that dress but a size 6 if your wedding isn't till after mine I can give you it but to have it altered you have to find someone who alters lace

Hope this helped and congrats on your wedding
