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 requested $500 budget, so I’ve searched for all sorts of knee-length reception dresses that include tulle skirts and/or lace tops. Consider these options “inspired by” the lovely Bien Savvy gown. Let’s check them out!
