I found a dress on line that I am head over heels for… and then I found out the price tag on said dress and that it is not available in my province or any provinces near me…. *sigh* I have dubbed it the “Unobtainable Dream Dress”… Isn’t it beautiful!?!?
*sigh* … If you know of anyone who has this dress and wouldn’t mind parting with it, let me know! …. I know that that is highly unlikely… But a girl can try can’t she?!?!?!
Do you have an Unobtainable Dream Dress?

THIS is my dream dress. I can’t afford that kind of price for a dress, Don’t even think my Fiance let me, and he is the sensible one of us. So if I could ever choose freely, it would be this one! I love the details.
Oh and second runner up:
It is labled -4000 -5000 dollars.. too much money!

@Elolith: They are both beautiful! I especially love the first one. Some days winning the lottery would be nice! lol

@PennyLainne: I’m not sure what your budget is, but I feel like I’ve seen similar gowns at the least the bodice part. You should look at the Blue by Enzoani collection http://www.bluebyenzoani.com/main.html
@Elolith: You too, have you seen the Dabra and Denmark gowns. Also look at Anjolique C103: http://www.anjolique.com/?http-0-action=process&http-0-requests=cms-1&cms-1-action=get_item&cms-1-id=393&cms-1-content_tags=view,primary_content You could add the cap sleeves or buy a little lace bolero.

Wow, elolith, that first dress took my breath away. I love it!
Here’s my unattainable dream dress. I’ve posted it a few times before:
Eugenia 3512, Spring 2009 Collection.
Not only am I certain it would be out of my price range. I’m not sure it ever existed, lol. I’ve only ever seen it on the designer’s website and china replica sites of the model. I’ve never seen it posted on a pre-owned site, blog, or real wedding online.

This would be mine. Couture Pnina which is probably $20k…O.O I know it’s offbeat, but I would rock this so hard…with a different veil and minus the gloves of course.;)

You could always have Jasmine Bridal or Dressilyme make a replica.

@DeadUtopia: I’ll take the gloves, if you don’t want them. Seriously, I have to find out where I can get myself a pair like in her shows.

There’s an awesome designer sample stores in SF and LA called Bridal Galleria www.bridalgalleria.com
I got my Monique Lhuillier there and paid 1/3 the original price. I thought that was a score, because there was no way I could pay retail for any of the dresses I liked.

@PennyLainne: I love the Aglaya, it’s like everything I wanted in a dress.. but I have to have my feet on the ground and be realistic.. even though that lottery ticket would have been nice! 😀
@Crabbabs: Oh! That is a cute and unique dress. Iloved the details on the shoulder. 🙂
@DeadUtopia: Your dream dress was so cool! I liked the stripey fabrics in the skirt! It’s offbeat but so different 😉
My Fiance doesn’t let me do the replica way anymore, he thinks I will stress out about the whole dress situation and for me the dress is the big stress momentum. I’ld rather check the preowned, and there never seem to be one in my size though.. ugh 🙁

The seller is a credible seller that I read about in Bridal Bargains: Secrets to Throwing A Fantastic Wedding On A Realistic Budget (2010 edition.)
