Ok. I need help to find a wedding dress. THAT looks weird written down.

I seem, despite my best intentions, to be getting married next year, and I need a dress.

I want something very much like this (particularly the sleeves)- I am flexible on colour, but have a budget of £500.

Has anyone seen anything similar?

I was hoping to get something made, but it looks like it might be too costly an option- so any recommendations for a good but cheap London based dressmaker also gratefully received smile

firstly: congratulations grin
secondly: I love that dress

Thirdly: how did you get a photo on MN post? What have I missed?!

1. Thanks smile still a bit freaked out- swore I would NEVER get married.

2. I do too

3. There's an option down there v to add an image- does it not come up for you?

This is kind of a weddingy colour. But the sleeves aren't the same.


TheDoctrineOfWho Fri 08-Nov-13 18:45:19

Or do you want floor length?

Can it be any long sleeve or that sort in particular? This Ghost dress is gorgeous, and is dye to order so you can choose your colour.

MrsLettuce Fri 08-Nov-13 19:08:03

Ooh, tethers! <squeeee>

tethersend Fri 08-Nov-13 19:16:37

Ah, you guys... link here

Ok, the sleeves do have to be like that (puff? Dolman?) and I do want full length, or at least ankle length. Sorry.

tethersend Fri 08-Nov-13 19:17:28

Ruprekt, I'm on an iPad too- how come you can't see the pic? confused

And thanks smile

mammadiggingdeep Fri 08-Nov-13 19:19:31

Whoop!!! Congrats....

The green dress is beautiful...just stunning. The ghost dress is gorge too...

tethersend Fri 08-Nov-13 19:21:41

Thanks smile

If I could find the green one anywhere, I'd buy it. It's pretty much exactly what I want.

MrsLettuce Fri 08-Nov-13 19:22:01

maybe? I know you like a quirky / 60s /70s edge but it might be a bridge to far...
and, erm, this pewter lurex has ^something confused
You might find something here and IIRC they make custom stuff too.

What abot lightinthebox?

Can change the colour of any design to one you want?

BestIsWest Fri 08-Nov-13 22:26:42

That dress is stunning. Would be my ideal wedding dress too. Not much help am I.

Congrats by the way!

tethersend Fri 08-Nov-13 22:52:20

Thanks all- I quite like the yoox number, but not for a wedding.

I think I want the Issa one... Not going to happen is it?

TheDoctrineOfWho Fri 08-Nov-13 23:01:45

Is this Issa one any good instead? Sleeves are different.


TheDoctrineOfWho Fri 08-Nov-13 23:03:39

Ooh, the sleeves are closer on this one

also red

SthingMustBeScaringThemAway Fri 08-Nov-13 23:07:07


I haven't come across this site before - and you'd need to alter the sleeves...

tethersend Fri 08-Nov-13 23:07:29

That's the one, good find- but unfortunately I'm a size 16 which I think is a US 12 so could probably get my arm into that one grin

tethersend Fri 08-Nov-13 23:08:31

Thanks SThing- but it's the sleeves I really like.
