@Sapphire-Dreamer:  Reem Acra’s  “ribbon”

I would have payed full price for it- budget be damned. I tried it on at a local shop that sells used dresses only and didn’t know it was long discontinued. I should have bought her when I had the chance QQ

EDIT: I chose I different discontinued dress from Cosmobella as my dress:

My dream dress was Kenneth Pool’s Bridgette. It was discontinued about 2 weeks before I went dress shopping

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  You have no idea. I’ve bought (and sold for what I payed) 4 different dresses until I got to mine. I feel like a nutter-butter LOL

I ended up paying $59 for mine though-so not bad at ALL.

I’d still drop 4k on that Reem. I never felt so beautiful or perfect in a dress. My dress is a close 2nd.

I posted this in another thread, but the Melissa Sweet “Fern” was discontinued long before I even thought about being engaged (I think it was stopped in 2010 or 2011?). I found some used, but all too small 🙁

Probably get it replicated if I can.

When I first started dress shopping I really liked Maggie Sottero Destiny in pictures. I read somewhere that it would be discontinued that year (2012) so I called around to all the dress stores in my area to see if they had samples. Only one did and told me they were selling it soon so I figured I’d better go try it on! Didn’t like it nearly as much in person so it wasn’t an issue. And I think it’s actually still available to order anyway.
