When I first started looking at dresses online, I fell head over heels in love with Anne Barge Brigitte, without realizing how expensive it was. I poked around and learned it was twice my budget, so I never even tried it on. I’m happy with the dress I ordered (Pronovias Oleida) and there’s no way I could have afforded it, but when I see pictures of Brigitte I still swoon a little! It’s so classy.

Yeah, my dream dress was a huge ballgown by vera wang. I just couldn’t justify spending so much money on a dress… i went with another ballgown I found for $600.

I never really thought I’d get married so I never really had a “dream” dress. When I first started looking at dresses I fell in love with a Justin Alexander. Ended up with a similarly styled Oleg Cassini.

Nope, I bought my dream dress. It was $300 over budget, but I thought it was worth it.
