Just because you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a wedding dress, that you will wear once, does not mean you have to skimp on design or make. With all of the below dresses, you are communicated directly with the designer and maker of the dress so you are not restricted at all to what is available in a wedding dress store, where you are just dealing with a sales person. With dealing with the maker, she can understand you and your wishes.
