Sometimes a gown calls to you like a low-backed, cap-sleeved, plunging neckline, lace siren, as the Berta 14-20 did for reader Jessica, who commented on this post:

I’m obsessed with these posts and have a dilemma myself… I fell in love with the Berta 14-20 when a model at a bridal show walked past me. The $8,000 price tag is out of my budget, though. Do you have any suggestions for similar dresses under $3,500? My wedding is October 15 of this year. Thank you!!

When it does, who you gonna call? #GownHunters!

    Affiliate Disclaimer NewToday’s CAI/GOI post was super fun to put together! Reader Marta emailed us asking for something a little non-traditional. She wrote:

    Help! I am not your conventional bride and am having such a hard time finding a dress. I love this one on BHLDN but of course this is their only dress at $2500: . Really like a low back but BHLDN’s dress in particular is a bit daring with the see through stomach. Anyway, looking for something rose gold/champagne (basically not white or ivory) that is interesting, unique and fun! Prefer a sheath/column dress over trumpet. Have any suggestions? Would love to find a dress between 500 – 750. I have officially tried on tooooo many dresses and i’m stuck. Thank you thank you thank you for any help you can send!”

    I’ve rounded up all sorts of gowns for this request, focusing on gowns in rose gold or Champagne (with some pinks and metallics thrown in for good measure). Most are also sheath or otherwise curve-hugging silhouettes. A few are maybe a little bit out there, but we’ve got unique and interesting covered! Let’s check them out!

    Phew! I’d say that’s a lot of unique gown options; what do you think, Marta? Offbeat wedding gowns are some of my favorites! And don’t forget, a gown doesn’t have to be labeled as a “wedding” gown to be YOUR wedding gown. Until next time, good luck and happy shopping!

Just tell us in the comments below! Please remember to include the budget you’re working with so we can find you the best alternative for you. Please be aware, though, that because you guys love this column so much, we can often build up quite the queue and it may be a while before we can get to your dream dress.

    Etsy ModDotTextiles Ivory and Gold Clutch

    Clutches are one of my very favorite wedding day accessories for a few reasons -- I think they're super cute, they're totally versatile (like, use it for all the pre-wedding parties and events well after the day) and look amazingly chic with your wedding day ensemble. Not to mention they carry the shit you'll find yourself wanting -- lipstick, tissues, vows, bobby pins, mints ...…

    Bien Savvy Addicted to Your Lips

    Today's CAI/GOI request comes from Miss Ashley, who is looking for a stunner of a reception dress; an alternative to Bien Savvy's "Addicted to Your Lips" gown. Ashley didn't have much luck finding a knock-off version, so she's asked the mighty BAB gown hunters for some assistance. I have to admit, there are few dresses that look exactly like the Bien Savvy gown under the…

    Happy Friday, darlings! Spring is right around the corner, and I'm starting to feel some kinda way about the promise of nicer weather, activities outside and of course flowers -- lots of flowers! I've been hard crushing on all things floral lately -- from dresses to shoes to paper bouquets -- and stationery is no exception. Luckily, the invitation gods have been paying attention and there…
