Hey everyone! i’m new to this site *waves* by the looks of things, most members are from the states… correct me if i’m wrong lol!
Anyway I’ve been searching and searching (even tho my wedding is still 1 year and 5 months away) we’re also on a budget and i found this BEAUTIFUL dress… (and its not very often that happens… i’ve had 3 dresses since i was 6) but anyway… i’m too scared to find out how much this one costs because i love it so much, i dont want to find out i can’t afford it.
I’ll post a picture… Anyone else out there have/having this problem? I want to get a perfect dress and looking beautiful because its not very often i get dressed up like this lol i’m more a jeans and t-shit kindda girl!

go check out some online tailors and see how much they would charge.
There are a few out there that are pretty good. Check out http://www.chicgown.com.
They do custom made dresses. Maybe they’ll fall in your budget.

That dress is by Maggie Sottero, and I think her dresses run for around $1000. Maybe that fits into your budget.

Thanks <font size=”2″ color=”#81a026″>michelleee</font> I’ve got in contact with a lady from that website, she will be giving me a quote in a couple of days *fingers crossed*
Yes its a Maggie Sottero dress… and $1000 might be pushing my budget, paying off a house at the moment so makes things a bit tight.
Thank you for all the replys 🙂

hmm i got a quote from that chic place… its about $600 and something US$ so that makes it around $800 something AUS$… lol i’m not liking the idea of spending that much on a dress that i’m going to wear once… but hmm i dont want a cheap looking dress either… AARGGHH!
hmmm I shell if there is anyway that i can get that beautiful dress in my hot lil hands with out going over budget lol doubt it!
Otherwise i need to hunt for a good tailor or dress shop where i can get one of a kind 😛

That dress is beautiful. I know the one that is similar to that one at davids bridal is $1000. I know you said that was a little high for you, but it may go on sale. i know that with each collection they do the $99 gown sale and you can save a lot then. My dress was $50 off when I got it and we put it on my moms DB card and it is 0 intrest and 0 payments for 12 months, but she is going to pay if off before the 12 month period… so no intrest… If I see a similar dress for cheaper i will let you know!

Oh BP- I know $800 is a lot to spend on one day, but if it doesn’t mess with your budget I would try and make it work. It’s so beautiful, and in the broad scheme of wedding dresses it’s on the lower end of the scale. Having said that, if it goes outside your wedding budget, just say no and never look back. I had to do that with a Vera I loved, but I knew I would feel sick about it if I tried to make it work. I have not had one moment of regret in saying goodbye to that dress.

Hello everyone, I’m also new to the site and I’m having issues finding a wedding dress. I’m a size 12 so nothing ever seems to fit. I’ve been looking at Alferd Angelo, and I like a few dresses but nothing has stuck out. Does anyone that is about my size have any suggestions?
