Would you ever do a post/respond to a query about wedding dresses? I’m hoping for one that has lace and visual interest, but isn’t too vintage looking, with a budget around $2,000. (Current first choice is the Janey by Nicole Miller.) I really trust your taste but realize that’s outside what you typically cover.
Thank you!! Nicole
I like the dress you chose, and how it mixes a sophisticated silhouette with lace. For something a bit more modern, I like the lace trim on Nicole Miller’s Tonya dress. The dress is very fitted, so I would buy a size up and tailor down.
Using your original selection as a jumping off point, I chose five dresses that caught my eye.
I was looking around on BHLDN and I found this fantastic Jolie gown. The lace attaches to a mesh underlay, so you get the sleekness of a sheath with a hint of softness. I also like the larger flower in the lace, which gives you more texture.
If you’re looking for something less-fitted and more ethereal, I like this under-$1,000 Penelope gown. Though, I would probably trim the bow in the back to remove bulk, and add a ribbon belt instead. Additionally, I like their Maeve dress with a lace bodice because you can choose the smooth skirt or add a playful tulle overlay.
Theia is a great brand for dresses in your price range. This strapless Courtney dress has a flower-petal texture and an ombre of soft pink at the hem. If you want straps and lace, this low-back Nadia dress is sleek, and utterly sublime.
