There was a thread on here a couple of weeks ago asking what your dream dress would be if money were no object. It got me wondering . . . how many of you girls did get, or probably will get, that dress? If you didn’t get it, did you get something similar that was cheaper, or did you go in a different direction? Just curious what everyone’s experiences are.

From the beginning, I had one dream dress. I loved it since the first time I saw it. I always thought it was out of reach and never considered it a real option. However, I HAD to try it on. Turns out, it was THE dress. So I had to get it :] It was slightly over budget, but I’m only doing this once!

My dream dress is a pnina tornai. I ended up with a pnina tornai. Its not a brand new one which would be ideal, but I purchased a sample gown from church street bridal whose proceeds go to abused women and children so it was a win win. I got my dream designer and I helped people in the process.

I found my dress on the Allure website and right then, I knew it was the dress of my dreams. It was basically everything I could have wanted and more in a dress. It actually ended up being MUCH cheaper than expected.

Yes and no. If I had unlimited money, I still would have gotten my dress. However, my dream dress was actually made by an independent designer in NYC and I didn’t have the nerve to buy a dress that I couldn’t try on before hand.

I don’t have a dream dress per se (at least not yet), so my answer is that my dress will likely be custom made based on a lot of other dresses i like- so yes.

I did have an unlimited budget but I never had THE dream dress. When I found what I wanted I was thrilled it was under $2k as I had predicted I would spend much more.

I always dreamed about Vera Wang’s Gemma. I could never bring myself to spend so much on a dress so I bought a similar VW White gown. It was lovely and I tried to love it as much as the Gemma but it just wasn’t quite right. So about a month later I came across a Gemma sample in my size for less than 30% of the original price …. and the rest is history 🙂 So so happy with my Gemma!

I didn’t have a specific dream dress, but at one salon there was a dress that was so gorgeous on the hanger but it was about $20,000 so I didn’t try it on. If money was no object, perhaps I would have put it on and fallen in love, but I’m still happy with the custom $2200 dress I did end up with (:

I want the Naiomi Neoh Clementine dress from her Secret Garden Collection. Too expensive for ny budget, so I will go with Dressilyme to make her replica for a much cheaper price.
