Hi bees! I need some advice and/or insight into my dress situation.
SO, I’ve gone to one bridal salon and tried on a bunch of dresses in different styles. One dress looked amazing and I think any normal person would have said “THIS IS IT!”, but the dress was just so average to me. I’m looking for a unique but classic gown and the only dresses I’ve been attracted to have been $10,000+ or from a up and coming foreign designer. This foreign designer does make gowns for girls in the states. She communicates through email, phone, and video chat. I initially was hesitant until the said designer announced a trip to NYC this month. I now get to meet her in a few weeks to go over all the details. She has also already given me a price quote ($5000-5500) which is in my budget. My Maid/Matron of Honor is the only person who thinks this is a good idea. Everyone else is weirded out by the situation.
What do you ladies think? Am I crazy to have someone in another country make a gown for me? I’m getting discouraged about the whole dress situation.
