I think I’m mostly looking for company in my misery, but also I’m looking for a magic answer.
I fell in love with this dress:
But it’s only one dress and it’s online, and I’m afraid it won’t fit me like this model! I’m shorter and not a waif. And $450 is even higher than I wanted. (I’m a bride on a shoestring, I’d like to pay no more than $100 ideally, but for the perfect dress, I feel like at this point I’d sell my kid. Luckily, I don’t have one of those.)
Does anyone know of a place, online or in Montreal, that sells more avant garde, nontraditional wedding dresses? I just don’t want to be covered in $3000 icing and ruffles. I want chic, elegant, romantic, but also a bit laid back and funky. And preferably, not this long.
My complaint cycle looks like this:
Bhldn’s collection this year is a little too froufrou.
J. Crew is too plain.
Vera Wang is too expensive.
Regular dress shops are too casual.
Am I being ridiculous?
I’m thinking yes.
I need fresh ideas! Inspiration! Anyone else feeling like this?
