Each of us has been married before, so we're hoping to have a small, intimate celebration rather than a traditional big wedding. We're also working on a limited budget. Can you help with a dress? I'm looking for something in a shade of white/cream/ivory, maybe with a halter top and an elegant shape - nothing too ballgown or mermaid-like. I'm also 38 years old and a size 12, so I need something age and size appropriate. I'm hoping to stay under $300. Please please can you help?"
Hey ReadyForLife2.0!!! I'm Found of You, and I love simple weddings. I wore #1 at my wedding three years ago, and it was both gorgeous and super comfortable. After my wedding, I had it professionally dyed black, and I still wear it.

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
