the uncommon dress for the uncommon bride

I have to admit, I wasn’t really looking forward to dress shopping when I got engaged.  Why? Because I have expensive taste!  I like things BECAUSE not everyone likes them.  I usually try to fight the hottest trends or at least not embrace them fully… Although, my husband would disagree with that statement and point his finger at my closet!  The point is, I’ve always been drawn to classic and romantic pieces.  So when it came to the difficult task of finding a dress that was unique, beautiful and within budget, I thought I was a goner.  To my surprise, I found MY dress the first day I started looking.  It was the only dress in the store that I genuinely loved and it was perfect for me.  So here are some ideas for looking outside-the-box when searching for your perfect dress at a great price!
