Hoping I can get some advice from some savvy shoppers.
Where should I buy a Monique Lhuillier Magical corset and skirt from to get the best price? The cost I’m being told is about $7200. The crystal belt is an extra $990! So expensive I know but I’m in love with it!
I’m too scared to buy a second hand dress so would prefer to buy a new dress as I need to have it shipped to me and won’t get to try it on beforehand. I also don’t have time to make a sample sale :o(
As I’m getting it shipped I’ll need my dressmaker to alter it at my cost- if you don’t need altering can you ask for a discount?
Any advice about which stores to approach or how/ if I could ever ask for a discount for whatever reason is greatly appreciated! I’ve never shopped for a wedding dress before so don’t know if asking for a discount is a big no no or if I’d be silly not to ask?

I’m not sure what you can do if you can’t go to a sample sale and you don’t feel comfortable with pre-owned.
However, remember that some people sell new dresses on the pre-owned sites. Sometimes, they find a second dress and try to sell the first.
Also, try to high end bridal consignment stores. Many (Le Dress in Atlanta, White in Chicago, Your Dream Dress, Encore Bridal, VOWS in Boston, and others) have their inventory online.

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: Thanks so much, I don’t live in the US so an idea of stores that stock this dress is even a great help. I’ll check them out!

Can i ask how much you paid in the states for the top and skirt? I live in the UK and love the Magical high wasted skirt and Corset, but thinking it would be cheaper if I bought it in the US. It was £7080 for both items total.
