For some reason my fiance, who never cares about ANYTHING girly, has been really specific in what he thinks a wedding dress should look like. It''s weird, but I''m actually a bit pleased that he has taken an interest in a girly detail. I was flipping through a magazine and he stopped me and pointed one out that he really likes. I didn''t notice it right away but after looking closer, I REALLY REALLY like it and want to go try it on. Problem is, the closest location the magazine and the website gave it are still several hours away from me. What are the chances of finding one in a local shop? Are there ever places that carry dresses that aren''t listed in the magazines? I''m not sure how to go about getting to one.

well, you should tell us what dress is! :)

If its worth it, make a day trip of it. Plus, sometimes not all shops are listed on the makers websites of the shops that sell their dresses, some are new, etc.

My fiance had ideas, too, no pick ups, and not giant and princessy. I ended up with the pronovias Diamante, which may be a little poofy for him, but I love it. :)

WOO-HOO!! Nevermind I went to a different website and found two places that are within an hour of my house!!! I''ll post a link to the dress to see what you ladies think. It''s very simple but if you look closer there''s just enough bling on the front of it to satisfy my need for sparkles, and the shape of te dress itself should look pretty nice on me. I''m 5''9" and about 140ish pounds. I''m hoping to be more like 135 and a little more toned by the time I''ll actually wear it
My fiance loves the simplicity of it. The only thing I''m not loving is the length of the train. I actually didn''t really want a train at all. Is there a way around that?

Here''s the dress

As the previous poster said, not all places list every desginer they carry. So call the stores close to you and ask i they carry your label and the particular dress. Some salons will also be willing to order the dress in for you at no charge (make sure you confirm there wont be a charge before you agree to it!). If all else fails, make a day trip out of it with your mum/girl friends. Good luck!

That''s what I thought too! I''m gonna see if I can find both. Realistically though, the first suits my body better.

Wow yours is beautiful angielea!

I can''t get that first link to work, or maybe it''s just taking a while.

I am having my train cut off of my dress. It is outrageously expensive compared to just having it hemmed (which I don''t see how this wouldn''t be the same process
) or bustled. But, it certainly is possible.

Thanks katamari. Good to know before I go deciding to do that I guess:) They all seem to have trains.

Thanks:) I got that one. It is really pretty and I love the way the fabric looks, but I really love the subtle "blingyness" of the other one.

Oooh ... Lovely, Kelli! I''m loving the 2nd and 3rd dresses. Glad you found a salon who sells this collection closer to you. I hope that you get to take pics when you go for your visit.
