I am in love with a South African wedding dress made by Hendrik Vermeulen. It comes from his "La Vie en Roses" collection and the dress itself is called "Charme de Paris." It is around $3,800 and shipping would bring it even more COMPLETELY out of our budget! I am regrettably fairly particular and have not found anything that compares. However, I know there has got to be something out there that won't break the bank and is similar.
I really want a lace bodice and some sort of A-line silk skirt...I love the different textures and don't really want a dress made completely out of lace. I am also really trying to stay away from strapless dresses and beading:/
I am open to purchasing a used dress if it is out of my price range bought new. Our price range is around $1,500 give or take and I live in San Francisco Bay Area in California. I am willing to travel to L.A.
Any help would be SOOOO appreciated!
