Imagine finding the perfect wedding gown and then realizing that the designer no longer makes it.  I don’t know about you, but I would liken that feeling to downing a heaping spoonful of ‘suck’.  Well.  That’s what happened to bride Rena.  But things may turn out alright for Rena, as the discontinued dress of her dreams was way out of her price range in the first place.  So don’t worry, Rena, your CAI/GOI fairy godmother is in the house, and she’s found a host of dresses that will make you forget that discontinued dress ever existed. Let’s do this.

I am madly in love with this simple yet stunning Amsale dress spotted on Style Me Pretty, but of course the Amsale web site no longer has it, and I know I can’t afford a dress in the $4-10K range.  Can you help find something similar in the $600-1000 range?

Many thanks!

- Rena M.

    Britt, you are awesome! These gowns are beautiful, and give me hope in the world (or at least, the world of bridal dress shopping). The Mori Lee and Jasmine collection are my favorite. I will have to go check them out in person! Thanks so much for all your help

    I totally love this style, great roundup!

    Rena, for a couple more options, I also recommend looking into Jenny Yu dresses, a lot of them are similar styles and on the simpler side, and around $1000 if you can get them on sale: http://www.jennyyoo.com/wedding_alternatives.html

    Also this one by David's Bridal, which is $750 and very pretty in person if you take the loosely attached stupid tulle flower off (IMO): http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Ball-Gown-Fea
