Weddings are expensive enough ( I read the average cost begins at 10,000!) so if you can find the perfect dress and save why not?
Another idea that a friend of mine had was to purchase her dress at full price (1,000) and later sold it on ebay for 500, so really that works out at half price! If your looking for yours now all the best and check out Oxfam :)
Model I ain't but the dress was beautiful!
