Sure, I called and was told these prices.

Allure C241 = $3,148

Allure C227 = $2,405

Allure 8920 = $1,348

No sales tax outside of IL.  In march $500 towards headpiece and shoes for first w dresses. $400 with last dress.

Hope that helps πŸ™‚

@Rachael1287:  Just a heads up, check out the import duty (I think about 12%?) and VAT before you purchase (I’ve used this in the past – http://www.dutycalculator.com/). It can easily add a few hundred pounds that you pay once the postman comes knocking! I know it can still end up cheaper, but can be a nasty shock if you’re not expecting it πŸ™‚ 

EDIT: Also, shipping is included in the total, so if your dress cost $1,000 plus $100 for shipping, then you pay the duty and tax on $1,100. Which to be perfectly honest sucks.

@curlywurly88:  Yep! Be careful with the customs in Europe. If possible, have it shipped to a friend in the US who ships it to Europe for you, packed as a “gift”, just mention dress and some $30 value:):)

@asianyoushi:  Ship it as “gift” and write “Duvet cover” or Comforter on package. Have it packed in a Comforter bag as well.

@tisposeroperche:  That’s exactly what I did with mine. Had it sent to my friend in NY and she removed all tags, changed boxes and sent it by courier to me in Greece.
