Good morning BABs! Another bride has fallen in love with the style of designer Berta’s gowns, and CAI/GOI is here to help! Mandy J wrote on this post asking for help:

Absolutely in love with Berta style 15-101 (long sleeves, backless, godet train, geometric inspired details). My budget is $3k and under. Thank you!!

Happy to help, Mandy! Berta has a unique modern, yet romantic style, and I see why so many of you find inspiration from her designs.  I’ve focused my search on gowns with a backless design with sleeves, and kept an eye for any geometric or modern patterns to the lace details. I’ve also tried to stick with gowns with slimmer silhouettes, that aren’t full ballgown skirts. Here we go!

Berta; Style 15-101; Fall/Winter 2015

Soho gown; $2,070 by Grace Loves Lace

Blanc gown; $2,250 by Grace Loves Lace

Mai gown; $2,450 by Grace Loves Lace

Style 694; $2,500+ by Demetrios

Deirdre gown; $1,000+ by Maggie Sottero

 

Karina gown; $2,000+ by Theia

Monica gown; $1,550 at BHLDN

Style 7702; $1,200+ by Ti Adora

Lenora gown; $1,000+ by Watters

My Love gown; $1,750 by Etsy seller WhiteMeadowBridal

And this one doesn’t have sleeves, but the geometric lines look stunning and you might be able to add sleeves or a shrug…

Style 6492; $1,500+ by Lillian West

I hope we’ve found something with that modern geometric look you found so inspiring with the Berta gown.  Until next time!

    Hey BAB’s! I don’t know where y’all are at, but here in Chicago or “Chiberia”, it’s BRRRRZZ. So, stay warm and drink lots of hot toddies, and watch all of the ’90s cheese on Netflix, (’cause there’s a lot of it) while you still can. Anywho, the real reason we’re here: Berta strikes again. I did a request a while back featuring some Israeli designers and I believe she was included. Her designs have captured the heart of reader Ashley and nothing has been quite the same since she saw this dress. Well, we have to do something about that! With all the pretty out there, surely we’ll be able to find something for you, lady! Here’s what Ashley had to say:

    “Hi! Hopefully you can help. Thanks to the all powerful…and EVIL…Pinterest, I have fallen in love with a wedding gown. A Berta Wedding Gown. An $8,580 Berta Wedding Gown. And every dress I have tried on since, does not remotely compare! My budget for the dress is below $3K. HELP PLEASE!”

    Damn you, Pinterest! But also, THANK YOU you evil, evil thing … but so awesome. The Pinterest struggle is real, you guys.

    I know you really like the long, lacy sleeves so I tried to stick with that, but I wanted to include a couple different options still featuring those lovely lace details. Plus, since BHLDN just released their new line, I HAD to include something from them because: PRETTY. ALL OF IT. SO MUCH. I hope I gave you some ideas to help you find that perfect dress! Please let me know if I can help in any other way. Until next week, BABs …
