dress way over budget!!

Fri Jan 18, 2013 9:41 pm

I finally found a dress that I absolutely love. It's perfect, other than the price of course! It's not really in our budget of $1000, instead its almost 3!
I want this dress but I just don't know how to squeeze it in the budget! I could get a dress maker to make one similar I suppose, I don't even know if that would be cheaper?! Can any body recommend some one in SA? Or had a similar thing, surely I'm not the only one who's fallen in love with a dress way out of the price range?!

Yep, who is it by? There are online sellers of genuine gowns who sell much cheaper than retail.

its not a designer brand. Just a shop in Adelaide who make their own stuff, a lot of custom order things. I will have a look at that site tho!

LIW would have helped you out - but she got offered a job in the old profession that was too darn good to refuse.

What store is it though? I might be able to help anyway :D

Given they make on site I would not recommend getting someone to copy it - you wont get the same quality and its frankly a little mean to the designer. See if they can reduce the price with cheaper materials. Otherwise write down what you like about it and try to find something more affordable. $1,000 is a modest budget for a wedding gown but good luck!

yes LIW that's what i thought too. i did ask about cheaper fabrics, but it doesn't look as nice with the cheaper stuff . :lol:

coco yes definitely, but i'm yet to find what i want. it's fitted and kind of lacey/crochety type stuff over top. i'd originally planned to make my dress, but with two children it became quite hard, then i found this dress so it seemed easier to buy! i'm leaning towards making it again, just crocheting a cover for a simple dress.
