Vintage Wedding Dress

Rachel, on April 26, 2019 at 9:36 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 9

Hi!! So I'm having the HARDEST time finding a dress I like in my budget. I guess I have expensive tastes. My wedding is next May, we're having a speakeasy/art deco theme and I love A-line (but fit and flare isn't bad either), beaded, floor length gowns but I can't really find anything under $1,000. I don't mind used either! Any suggestions? So far my favorite is something like Maggie Sottero's Etia. Thanks a million!

    Look for pre-owned dresses! I knew going in that I have expensive tastes but was not willing to spend more than $1000 on the dress. I ended up with a discontinued (but never worn) dress from a bridal consignment store.

    I had great luck with Stella York and some of the sister brands. My dress was about $1100 on sale. My dress is below. You may want to look into BHLDN they have some great sales, look for 40% off clearance, and have that aesthetic.

    I would also suggest searching for Maggie Sottero trunk or sample shows at bridal shops in your area! If you can find one, call the shop and specifically ask if it’s possible to try that particular dress. They might be able to help you out! Good luck!

    I got my Maggie Sottero from $275 new with tags. They have thousands of dresses. Good luck!

    Shop Gossamer has actual vintage dresses and I believe many under $1,000.

    My dress is $1250 but it's also getting custom made from this:

    I found it on some flaky website and after all the research on trying to find the designer/legit place to buy it, I talked to someone who can just remake it for me (with a few minor changes).

    Check Poshmark! I got my dress on there for $200 and I’ve seen loads that’ll go great with your theme

    Actually buy a vintage wedding dress. You will save tons. Lots of etsy. Miranda's vintage bridal online is amazing!
