The dress you can't have – tale as old as time

Negotiating with the buyer on Still White is probably your best bet but I also have another suggestion…

There was a dress that I needed for an event and it was sold out everywhere so I went into slight stalker mode and jumped on the brand’s Instagram page, clicked on their “tagged in” function and found someone who had bought it and tagged the label in her pic. I sent her a message and asked if she’d consider selling it to me. It turns out she had worn it twice already and didn’t think she’d wear it again anyway so she agreed to sell it to me for dirt cheap.

Now, that wasn’t a wedding dress and I understand people may be more reluctant to part with the gown they got married in but it’s worth a shot. Some people will even be happy to be given the opportunity to offload it and make some money back. Who has space these days to store a dress they’ll probably never even look at again?

I tried on the Decklyn gown!  It ultimately wasn’t for me… I had my eye on the Kenny and that’s what I ended up getting.  I suggest you either keep an eye out online, or try on similar dresses from other designers!  I assume there are no other areas of your wedding that you can cut cost on to be able to afford the gown?
