Hi Girls, So far my wedding planning has gone without a hitch (miracle). Yesterday myself an my Mam went into a bridal shop here in Galway and tried on some dresses. I came out of there with the feeling that I had found the dress I want. I was over the moon. I asked the girl if it's from this season's line or would I have to order sooner than later. She told me it was 2007 and not to worry. Great! I went home to check it out online and guess what? It's discontinued! I rang the shop and told them what I had found so she said she'd ring the supplier on Monday and see if they have any remaining in stock. She didn't even apologise the biddy. So I went onto an online website and sent a couple of emails to a crowd in New York and they're going to see if they can get one from the supplier as well for half the price. I'll be hearing about it tomorrow. And your woman in the shop never told me that you could get it in Gold which I specifically asked about. Anyway fingers crossed because I really loved it, but if not I'll keep looking.

I will post a link to the dress tomorrow if I am able to order it. Otherwise I won't for I will be a bit sad. I'm going to NY in November so I'll pick it up when I'm over there if they can get it for me. The fella was very helpful in the email. I'll keep ye posted.

Well girlies. First I didn't hear from the shop (the wagons). You'd think they'd be trying to get all the custom they can. I did hear from the New York shop though. He went to the designer and lobbied with them on my behalf and now they're going to "build" the dress especially for me even though it has been discontinued! I'm absolutely delighted! :o)ll Here's a link to the dress (is it the same as your swellin?) ;) http://www.sinceritybridal.com/eu_en/co ... =586&disc= [img:7vvvsf5q]http://www.sinceritybridal.com/photos_big/3111_b1_050919055435.jpg[/img:7vvvsf5q]

Das Kitty, do you mind me asking what NY shop that was? PM if you prefer. The only reason I ask is because I saw a dress in a shop at the weekend and was delighted when I saw the designer was stocked on RKbridal (not stocked on any of the other online retailers recommended here). I rang them to get a price and she couldn't find the code, no code, no price, no dress, sort of attitude.

Its actually Best Buy Bridal.com They have a shop upstate New York. What's the dress designer and I'll see if I can find it on any other site for you. PM me if you like. :thnk
