So after faffing about buying a sample dress from Justin Alexander (because i was ‘fed up’ of looking) i had MAJOR dress regret. Im talking nightmares about the bloody thing! Anyway i started the search again for a dress that actually met my requirements (fishtail, glittery, no lace) and stumbled across Allure couture c267 which was only released two weeks ago. I enquired all the bridal stores in the country and nobody had it – i was also informed how disgustingly expensive it was! So i gave up on that. A week or so later one store emailed me telling me of another that had it – turns out its 3 miles from my house! One id been to before that stocks mainly Allure but i hadnt seen it there, and i thought i may as well as they may have other new ones.
Sure enough they had it – in the stock room! They said because they are the importers for the UK they sell to the other shops in the UK, and that no other stores had bought it because of its cost, and that they planned to sell it to a store in Poland or Russia as brides typically spend a lot more apparently.
I put it on and it was THE most beautiful thing id ever seen! I compared it to other allures i had tried on there, and Fiance was there – he almost started crying when he saw it on (i have only ever seen him cry ONCE – at a funeral!!), It was THE ONE.
Only issue? Price. Thankfully, the lady decided to sell it to me as a sample, eventhough the only other person to wear it was their model when they did preview shows. So i got about 25% off! Ive put a 50% deposit down and ill definitely have to sell it after the wedding.
BUT ARGH im so excited! Its so beautiful!!:D 😀

@NLbride: Well considering i already had a dress that cost me £1000 which was my original budget, im technically about 2.5 times the budget if i can sell the other dress! But i definitely didnt realise i would throw all sense out of the window when i found ‘the one’! 🙂 And thank you!
