Instead, I'd like to wear a fabulous red cocktail dress-- red because my fiancee is Chinese and red is the traditional color of love and prosperity. So far, this BCBG dress is by far the front-runner, but its a little pricey (in addition to "fun" and "non-traditional" we're also "on a budget"). Please help me find something red and AMAZING to help make my special day perfect. Here's the deets: -I'm a size 6/8 -Id like to stay between $200-$400 -Its for my wedding in June, but I'm shopping this month"
