When I was shopping for my wedding dress (just about a year ago from now!) I knew exactly what I wanted. I never went to a bridal store & tried on dresses with a group of girls, or anything cliche like that. I went straight to ebay. Thats right, ebay. I bought the shiloette of my dress there for $100. The original design of the dress was based off of this STUNNING, GORGEOUS, DROOL-WORTHY Jim Hjelm Design.
& thats how my sweet little $400 dress came to be. And in case your wondering, I will not recommend getting your dress less than a month before your wedding or getting it from ebay. I was lucky, you may not be.
