Greetings, BABs! My name is Caitlyn, and I’m the newbie tackling your requests for The Broke-Ass Bride’s Can’t Afford It? Get Over It! posts. I’m excited to be here, so let’s go ahead and save you some $$$.
Bride Bex wrote in asking us to find her a gown similar to BHLDN’s Emma for under $700. A part of the Theia collection, the Emma gown features a cherry blossom inspired look, with laser-cut petals appliqued onto a tulle base. This beautiful dress comes in ivory or blush ombré and usually retails for $1295. Before I get into some Get Over It options though, I wanted to point out that if you happen to be a size 10 (ivory) or a size 4 (blush), you are in great luck, because the real deal Emma gown is on sale RIGHT NOW for, wait for it…..$600! Not your size? Fret not, as I’ve listed a handful of options below that I think are pretty similar to the Emma, all under $700.
Well, Bex if you can’t get ahold of the Emma gown, I hope the options I’ve shown you fit the bill for your dream wedding dress. The BAB has actually featured the Emma gown before in a CAI/GOI post, so you can check that out for even more suggestions! Happy shopping!
