I found a dress that I absolutely love. It was a sample from a discontinued style that fit me perfectly and had all the features I liked (sleeve length, neckline, etc.) I bet you can believe my surprise at that one! Because it's a discontinued sample, it's about $200 from a reputable bridal salon in a city near mine, and if I purchase a veil with it (the one that I thought matched it perfectly was $210), they will discount it even further. It's in near perfect condition. There is one tiny smudge that my mother and the sales consultant pointed out that they both think can be easily cleaned. I didn't even notice it. I just wanted to see if this raised any red flags among those of you who've done more dress shopping than me.
