Boy, did I have a challenge for today’s CAI/GOI post, you guys! Reader Lauren commented on this previous post with a request for an Anna Campbell look-alike. Specifically, she’s on the hunt for a gown like the “Lucinda,” which features all-over scalloped lace, a natural waist, and a sparkly, beaded belt. Finding a dress exactly like the “Lucinda” for under $1000 was tough, but I hope the dresses I’ve listed below come close to matching what you’re looking for in your wedding gown, Lauren. Let’s check them out!

Some of these dresses lack a bling-y embellished belt, but not to worry. We’ve got that covered too! I think your best bet may be to find a lace dress that matches the silhouette you like the most, and then add your own sash or belt to complete the look. Below are a few affordable options from Etsy, which is a great resource for finding sparkly belts and sashes in a huge range of prices and styles.
Wedding Belt by FalabellaBridal, $24.90 via Etsy
Wedding Belt by EventbyEunice, $48.99 via Etsy
Silver Wedding Belt by BridalByCrysteliz, $54.99 via Etsy
“Princessa” Bridal Sash by BellaCescaBoutique, $69 via Etsy
Those are some sparkly belts! Remember, if you purchase a bridal belt separately, make sure you coordinate your sash color with the color of your dress. And if you’re DIY-savvy, the Interwebs abound with instructions for making your own bridal sash. So Lauren, how about those lovely lacy gowns above? Keep us posted on what gown you choose as THE gown for your wedding. Good luck, and happy shopping!
