Second, I'm engaged, hurray! I'm sure you get that a lot. I have y'all to thank, though, because you cut through all my wedding confusion with the most beautiful dress in one of your other personal shopper feature. In that feature, the shopper wanted a Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief- esque dress, but NOT in white. Well ... I'd simply be happy with that dress in white or cream ... and on a budget - preferably less than $1,000 (including alterations, which would probably put my price range around $800 ... I think?). I'm a size 4/6 in normal dress sizes, I'm looking at October for the wedding and I would LOVE y'all even more than I already do if you could help narrow the field for me. Turns out weddings are pretty overwhelming! Thank you! Ashley"
