      Yikes that is crazy expensive, even moreso if you are having more than one bridesmaid! Gorgeous though!! I love the colors.

        I LOVE IT! They are very pretty. They are on the pricey side, but look worth it!

          Very pretty, but totally insane pricing! If you love the dress that much, check with a seamstress to see if they can make it! Also, I love that bracelet, but you might be able to find someone who can make something similar! Check etsy and find a seller you like and send them a pic!

          I just realized that I ended every sentence with an !, but that's cuz I really do like the dress and bracelet, but they are too expensive. Unless you are purchasing them for your BM's, but even still, WAY expensive.

            Wow... that is cute! Maybe you can find it on clearance at an outlet store in a few months when the season is over?

              Carly! I love the dress too!

              Yeah the dress is definitely not in my price range, but I am going to see if I can find someone who can make something similar. I don't want my girls to have to pay more than $150 for a dress... I think that dress is so expensive because it is 100% silk and... is technically a couture party dress.

              I'm pretty sure I could find a girl on Etsy to make a cuff similar for me.

              Aye. Big dreams. :)

                Both are very pretty. I have expensive taste too! Haha! I love the detail on the dress-very different.

                  That dress is absolutely exquisite and to DIE for!!! The jewelry is so pretty too. But yes the pricing is painful, lol. I would definitely see if you can get a knock off made cause good Lord it's beautiful!!!!

                    wow, that's more expensive than a lot of wedding dresses! tbh, I think that if you're buying the dresses you could definitely spend the money in better ways, and it's definitely not fair to make a BM pay that much! I'm sure you can find something similar that's much more affordable. There are a lot of talented seamstresses out there that can duplicate pretty much anything too (sometimes the result is even better than the original) so you definitely have some options :)
