Looking for this dress...but affordable

Recommended Posts

I had my first experience wedding dress shopping with my mom this past weekend...wow!

For starters, I didnâ€t realize that the stores only carry one size of each dress usually being a 10 which is really like a 6 and I wear an 8 on a good day, so….that was fun!

 

Anywho, we found a lot of really cute dresses but I saw a picture of this Monique Lhuillier Miranda dress a while ago and I canâ€t get it out of my head. Iâ€m not willing to track it down and spend thousands of dollars on it, but I was hoping to find a dress in the stores that resembled it. No such luck. Found some things that were similar but they had a halter neck line instead of a v neck or they would have a lot of bling and be big and poofy at the bottom. I really didnâ€t think I was going to be this picky of a shopper, but as it turns out – I am.

 

If anyone sees anything like this, could you please let me know the designer and style – Thanks!

i tried that dress on -- it was gorgeous byut $7,000. good luck tracking one down that looks enough like it to satisfy you! i tried but didnt have a lot of luck because i was picky and there was always something that was a little too different about the non-monique gown that i couldnt get over.

Dang, long day sorry, if I could read that would help. I was just so excited to see the gorgeous lace that kind of matched. Bummer, sorry!

I appreciate the effort! I actually tried that dress on yesterday and it is super cute and really close, but (and it doesn't show in the picture) it's covered in pearls and sequins and it has a really long train...other than that - it's perfect :-) God I'm picky!
Before we started shopping my mom made the comment - wouldn't it be so cool if you loved the first dress you tried on...ha!

Didn't Kashmira wear this dress or something similar?

 

It's gorgeous but I think finding a knock off might be hard. I bet the lace wouldn't be as elegant as this dress. I hope you can find one though!

 

I like the David's Bridal one and I think that's the closest I have seen.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
