Ok Albanian wedding and I have been given notice for the first time! Yay! So I can buy here and not need the needles sticking in over there

So it has be long bling dress: Any places people can suggest?

I am a pear size 10 - which is the problem over there - in vanity sizing and 5 6. I have very pale white skin with dark brow hair and eyes -hazel. I maybe in my 30s but I don't like anything hanging out -it has to hint rather than reveal.

Try phase eight?

How bling does it need to be? I think this colour might suit you?

MrsLettuce Thu 29-Jun-17 20:56:41

What sort of budget OP?

Bling in what sense? Are embelishments a must or must it just be vv posh looking?

MrsLettuce Thu 29-Jun-17 20:56:59

embellishments, even.

Thank you everyone intran that is the kind of thing I would choose but not bling enough. bing that is lovely and the sort of thing. Up to £200 is the budget as it is family plus I could eBay after. Unless there are hire shops in London? Has anyone ever bought anything off God Diva?

Quiz are always good for dresses with a bit of bling

I was going to suggest Quiz, or maybe Chi Chi London?

Ignore the first few rows, they're all bridal. There are some nice ones after that.

I'm not sure anything available over here will ever be bling enough for an Albanian wedding! The wedding dresses in the shops of Tirana are the blingy-est items I have ever seen, we speak of them often in this household (not helpful). Good luck OP!

Intransige Fri 30-Jun-17 20:59:14

This is quite bling?

Intransige Fri 30-Jun-17 21:40:27

Or this one?

I love this one

If you're in London, head over to Finsbury Park- Fonthill Road. Tons of shops with blingy evening/party/wedding dresses and very reasonably priced- it's full of rag trade outlets.

I was also going to suggest Fonthill Road.

Its the place people go for prom dresses etc and a lot of the Albanian women I work with get their event dresses there.
