I personally was not going to be the ultimate consumer on a dress I was going to wear one time. The cost per wear just didn't work out for me personally. So I bought a 2nd hand never worn Stella York dress for $200. Can't beat it! This is my dress. Would love to see all your unique, vintage, 2nd hand, handmade, etc. Wedding gowns. That's my dress! Just not on me yet lol.
