- Wedding: September 2008
Hi! I am desparately in need of some help and am hoping that one of you fantastic Bees or your readers may be able to point me in the right direction. I am getting married in September and so far, the wedding is going to be a bit untraditional. We’re really just winging it. Now, here’s my problem. I have fallen in love with a dress. Not just any dress…a creation. A vision in….orange? Yes, that’s right it’s not a wedding dress. It’s this gorgeous frock from Christian Dior’s Fall 2007 Ready-to-wear line. (It’s from the same season that Cameron Diaz’s dress for the Costume Gala 2007 came from.)
I love it sooo much. A bit unconventional, I know, but everytime I go try on regular wedding dresses, I don’t feel anything. But I keep going back to this dress over and over again. I feel like this dress suits my personality perfectly (lots of fun, but a little quirky) and is thereby an extension of myself. I heart it.
So here’s my big question. How the heck do I get my hands on this dress, or even find out how much it costs? I can’t find its style name/number anywhere. Now I know this is probably a pipe dream that is about to burst-there is probably no way I could ever afford this dress, even if I sold my soul to the devil. (I’ve already offered it, but he said no thanks-that Dior dress is worth waaaay more than one piddly little soul.) So my next question is do any of you Bees or your savvy readers have any idea how to get this dress at a discounted price or have any secret handshakes that will enroll me in a secret society that gives out designer duds for free?
Oh yeah. There’s one more little catch. I live in Edinburgh…as in Scotland. I’m originally from upstate NY and that’s where the wedding will be held. But I am sooooo ready to fly pretty much anywhere in the world for this dress. (Or at least down to London.)
I’m not sure what else to do. Should I forget about this dream dress and just pick something that I’m not head-over-heels for? Or should I try to hold out for the super-amazing-most-wonderful-and-perfect-for-me dress? Please help me!
