Today’s CAI/GOI goddess is in the market for one of those Vera Wang stunners with sheer straps and an effortless ethereal glow. Personally, I prefer calling my sheer straps “Illusion necklines”. Much spookier. And far more Halloween appropriate.  But that’s beside the point.  Let’s get to the gowns.  I found bride Sue a host of gowns that may help her get over her Wang obsession. There’s even a few Wang picks down there. What’s that, you say?! Getting over the Wang with the Wang?! Is it possible?! Yes, yes it is. Watch and learn, brides.

Hi there!

I’m starting my hunt for a wedding dress and would love to find a more affordable version of one of these gorgeous Vera Wang gowns with sheer v-neck straps.  The ethereal, flowy design is perfect for my summer wedding and I love the v-neck as it offers a bit more support for that most important day!  However, the $3,000+ price tag for these gowns is close to a third of my total wedding budget, so I’d greatly appreciate any suggestions for similar dresses under $750.

Thanks for the wonderful blog and fabulous, budget-friendly inspiration!
