my dream dress is discontinued ... need help/ideas finding a new dress
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 3:00 PM

My wedding dress is an Alfred Angelo princess dress. I don't know the style # because at the time I was helping another bride with her wedding. I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with this dress though. Our wedding is going to be in late May. Outside in a garden. We're having a fairy tale theme, FH calls me his princess. I've attatched three pics of the dress I wanted. Its discontinued and now finding any other dress is going to be hard because I've had my heart set on this one. I want spaghetti straps and classic white. If anyone knows where I could still possibly find this dress or one similiar to it please let me know! Or if you can suggest another line of dresses? I really never did any reserach it was the first dress I found and loved it. So please check out the pics and help me if you can! Thanks!

Try this dress from David's Bridal

This was my dream dress, until I found another one I liked more....not for any particular reason, I just felt the other one fit me better, but this is still one of my favs. Best of luck!

♥Just married!

I have a "princess" dress that I am selling.  It is listed on ebay right now and there is one person watching it but it has not been purchased yet.  The auction ends very soon, though!

If it doesn't sell then before re-listing it, I'll give you the option to buy if you'd like and we can handle it without ebay.  Let me know if you're interested.  Either way, I wish you the best of luck in finding the right gown!

I can't get over your dress you are selling! So much info! that's a great price too.

 

As far as the dress you are seeking- I really wish I could see the pictures-but here at work I can't- i have a list of dresses that have been discontinues with pictures of them at home. I will get back to you later tonight if not in the morning.  I hope I can help.

OH!  Also, you could see if www.juliusbridal.com could re-create the dress for you.  They are a real brick and mortar store (I think in NY?) but they sell online.  They can do custom pieces.  I know of several brides who have used them and been very happy and have seen real photos of their dresses on the wedding days.  Some of the other wedding websites out there have members who have posted their experiences with Julius Bridal so anyway, you might try that too.

A great way to find a discontinued dress is to buy it used.

Why don't you try preownedweddingdresses.com?

Don't forget you can always add spaghetti straps to a strapless dress.  Very easy, and some even come with optional straps.

I love the dress you had picked out!  It’s definitely fit for a princess!  That Alfred Angelo dress reminds me a lot of Mary’s Bridal dresses.  Have you checked out their collection?  These are similar, too.
