Also, as a tip for others who are researching dresses, I found this one on the RK Bridal website. They have over 5000 dresses by major designers listed in their online store and they often list prices. I use it like a wedding dress database :-).

So glad this had a happy ending!  It was so frustrating not being able to find it anywhere, and it’s such a gorgeous dress, I’m excited to put a name/number to it!  All the best wishes for you and your mom.

I also just want to tell you that I have been where you’ve been before.  My mom was diagnosed right before my senior year of college with extensive stage small-cell lung cancer.  Doctors weren’t sure she would make it more than a year.  

Fast forward three years and she was (and still is, for that matter) still doing well, though after 1.5 years of not needing anything was about to go back to chemo.  It was June, I was recently engaged, and the wedding was set for November.  I decided on a Wednesday that we would go shopping that Friday, just the two of us, before she started chemo, mostly just to look.  Second dress they put on me was it.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Watching your mom suffer in a time when you need her most is terrible and I wish you didn’t have to bear that burden because it sucks.  If you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me.

She’s still with us, almost 4 years after diagnosis.  Though we’ve recently received bad news (she has metatheses in her brain), every day we get is a blessing.
