Let me start off by saying everyone looks beautiful!!!
I'm getting married in August 24, 2012 and I went last weekend with df to browse..to see what styles I liked since I wanted to prepare myself for Kleinfelds blowout sale. Well..I lovedddd this gorgeous Lazaro trumpet all lace gown.. except it was out of my price range at $5400, but she told me it was discontinued so it would be 50% off. Still out of budget. Plus, I wanted to wait for Kleinfelds. I couldn't get this dress out of my head, I love love loved it! I left Kleinfelds with nothing and I returned quickly to the local bridal store with my sister this time and we tried on that dress and others for a variety. I had that amazing feeling once again. My mom offered to pay my gown, but I still wanted a cheaper dress because to be honest, I'm quite practical and it's only for ONE day lol. I told the S.A. my budget was $2k max and she went to talk to her manager. She came back and said that her manager will clean, fix, and do all alternations for $2000! I jumped and nearly screamed yes! My sister said we could've bargained some more but I was too excited to think straight lol. The belt is separate but I might make my own, from what I heard it's quite easy. So here's my beautiful gown
Please do not mind the gut! It will be fixed lol.
