OF YOUR DREAMS

FOUND

Expensive and exquisite dresses are often

to be found in the “for sale” columns, or on

Trademe. Many have been purchased or

imported from overseas and you may discover

a genuine designer bridal gown at a fraction

of the original cost. You can always have it

re-fitted or altered with beading or a trim

to your personal taste.
