      I had difficulty finding something that was everything I wanted at first too. After alot of looking around online, I found a designer named Essesnse of Australia. They had a ton of dresses that were not too big, but had interesting embellishments. My price range was around 1000, and most of their dresses are right around there. They also have a line called Ella, which is much less expensive, and really cute. Here are the links...

        don't worry, I'm sure you still haven't made that many trips compared to a lot of people! I ended up shopping in 3 different cities before finding my dress! You sound like you have a fairly specific idea of what you want, but don't be too close-minded when you go dress shopping either. I was sure I wanted a drop-waist dress with ruching, a fairly full skirt, and no train, but I ended up getting a simple A-line dress with flowy silk chiffon and a small train. Relying too much on bridal magazines can be a bad thing too b/c dresses will always look different when they're on a professional model and airbrushed (they're best for just deciding if you want lace, beading, simple, etc). I managed to track down a few dresses from magazines that I loved, but even though they fit me and I have a pretty good figure, they were just kinda "meh." As it turns out, I absolutely hate the press photo of the dress I bought, and would never have considered it while flipping though a magazine.

        It may seem like you're getting nowhere, but seriously, just keep on trying on dresses! Chances are that when you finally find one and it's all over, you'll miss trying them on :P

          I'm going to keep trying. I like trying them on, it's fun, just frustrating to leave with no idea still of what I want.

          Thanks for all the advise ladies, I really appreciate it.
