    Thanks Tammy. Let me know what you find?? I just tried to post a pic of my FI's ring and I got the same message. It was a 300 X 300 res file.

      Sometimes they are on the tag on the dress itself, although don't look for it if you don't want me to try to copy you (on second thought, maybe I don't want the number because then I'll feel like I might actually be able to find it...hmm...)

        Also, if you go to the designers website, they usually post their past lines. Like if it was her fall 2004 line....you can search for it that way

If you search for a specific dress on ebay (I searched for Priscilla of Boston) you might get the link to her ebay store.

            Here is the Priscilla of Boston gown I love (2902), it's like $5000+

            Hey Sarah that knock off looks pretty good, how much is she asking?

              I never thought of buying a dress online but maybe I will look and see what is out there. Sounds like a bunch of you have found some great buys.

                LOVELY! Thanks for sending me these pictures! I am going to have to check out all the awesome suggestions the girls have mentioned. It makes me feel a lot better to know that I have options to spending thousands on a dress.

                  Netbride is great. I found the bridesmaids dresses there for 40% less! They were delivered earlier than quoted.

                  When I was looking for dresses, I would go try them on at places like Dimetrios and then would contact Netbride or Pearl's Place. Pearl's Place is great - they won't quote you a price over email, but you can call them.

                  I found that some things that Netbride didn't carry were available through Pearl's Place.

                  (504) 885-9213.
