Is this dress for the bride or bridesmaid dresses? I’m confused. Anyway, I did image reverse searches but unfortunately they have yielded nothing. this dress in the picture reminds me of most Gypsy and Traveller wedding dresses. Very big, very sparkly, very embellished… a little (dare I say it) gaudy. No disrespect intended, it’s a an uncanny aesthetic and no doubt unique, but these dresses are always custom-made. The most famous gypsy dressmaker is Thelma Madine. I would suggest contacting local dressmakers. They’ll usually give you a great deal for mass orders (i.e. bridesmaid dresses). Another way to cut the cost is to check out prom dress boutiques. Yes, prom dresses! They are undoubtedly less expensive than similar-looking dresses that are merely tagged as “bridesmaid” dresses! In my experience, whenever the term “wedding” is attached to anything the price goes up nearly 20% or more. It’s ludicrous! You can get very elegant prom dresses to use as bridesmaid dresses for $100 or under per dress. My advice to getting exactly what you want (and being conscientious of costs), is to work your way around dealing with “wedding” vendors, including wedding-specific attire/dress stores.

If the bride-to-be is looking for something big, poofy and sparkly, you’ll find that in quinceanera dresses. I just found a similar silver dress here:

This is another silver dress:

I’m uncertain how reputable the online stores are for those links (I honestly just did a google image search for dresses) so do be careful.

Good luck!!

I would contact Catan’s in Strongsville Ohio. They are the masters of all things bridal and if they can’t tell you they can find something similar or better.  If you don’t want to call them find a GREAT bridal store well experienced in your area and show them the picture.
