Can't spend 5K over a discontinued gown!

I found a gown I love, a Pnina Tornai NLLHA, but its $5K, probably discontinued from the origional collection from 2006, and is only alledgedly at Kelinfelds! Does anyone know a great custom gown shop who makes bridal gowns in the grater Northern NJ area?!

I don't know where you can go, but DON'T go to Maria Roma in Philadelphia. They make you pay for the sample, and they won't draw you a picture first. You have to TRUST a couple women who have very bad taste. And a dirty store. Just a warning.

MrsK2B,

Out of curiosity, I googled the dress and quickly found that someone in London is selling the same dress that she wore at her own wedding. I have no idea of your situation, but if you're really on a budget, you might want to look into pre-loved dresses.

As far as getting a custom dress made, I have no idea how much that would cost, but just be aware that any skilled seamstress is probably going to be fairly expensive. My grandmother used to do weddings before she retired, and even fifteen years ago she was charging a couple hundred dollars for bridesmaids dresses and 1000+ for bridal gowns. Just be careful who you go to; I am always nervous about things like this.

Finally, I'd say maybe try to look for replicas of the dress or dresses you like. They can be a lot less expensive and still high quality. And keep an eye out for Kleinfeld's sales; I've heard they're fantastic and you might get lucky.

I googled that dress and it came up on kleinfeld's website, so it seems to not be discontinued. I'm not sure how far you are from NYC, but if possible you could go there and at least try it on. Sometimes it's easy to fall in love with a dress from a picture, but then you try it on and it's not what you thought.

Also, many of the ladies on here are skilled at finding similar dresses by other, less expensive designers. I'm going to post the picture I found of the dress you listed, but please let us know if it's not the right dress!
