My Dream dress is Mon Cheri 111223. When I saw this dress the first time I said “OMG this is the dress I want to marry Mr. Sapphire in”
But alas it is from the 2011 collection. My wedding will be in 2014. If I ever find a sample of this dress it will be a miracle.
Was your dream dress discontinued before you had a chance to try it on?
POST THAT SUCKER and lets fawn over what might have been.
ETA: I would love to know what you ended up choosing after you lost the dream one. Or if the dress ended up finding you in the end.

@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:

@MissFireFlower: I know you and I to be very budget conscience ladies so to hear you say you would pay FULL PRICE for something is a testimate to how much you must love that dress. Speaking as someone who never pays Retail Value for ANYTHING, there are very few things I would pay Retail Value for.
ETA: OOOOH, you went with a Halter?! I thought your gown was strapless with pickups? Did I miss a trend somewhere? I You still doing that kickass veil?

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.

- Wedding: March 2014 - Brazil Room
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.
