The WHITE PUFF!

Tis told that this would be the most important dress any female would put on! It MUST be an outstanding piece that makes its wearer resemble a princess freshly pulled out of an enchanted fairytale. Seeing there is no equality in this world and we are separated by social classes and wealth status the price of the white puff (aka the wedding gown) varies from woman to the other.

Follows is the most expensive wedding dress ever made. The horrendous piece costs $12 million (wala ebalaash ma akhtha) its a collaboration between Renee Strauss (Wedding Gown's Master) and Martin Katz (Jewel Dealer). The white rag (aka the dress) carries 150 carats of diamonds!!They spend all that money and DIAMONDS to make this crappy dress and they couldn't come up with a better design??!! I swear I can wrap a bed sheet and stick the diamonds on it and I would make it look spectacular not this piece of crap!!
Couple days ago I went to the airport with my aunt and was doing her Vat/Tax-free or whatever you call it. The man behind the counter got a bit too chatty with me seeing I was there for a while (Aunty + Shopping= NeverEnding Shopping Spree) so he says that the highest tax-free return he did for Kuwait was for the blue bloods and their shopping that mounted up to £500,000 including a Wedding Dress bought from Europe for €150,000 that's about £130,000 ya3ni roughly 60,000 KWD!!

For fuck sake why would ANYONE spend 60K on a fucking dress??!!! I am a shopaholic to the bone but I would NEVER spend that amount on a dress that would be worn for ONLY 1 night!! OK even if you are a friggin zillionaire it sounds a bit wrong to spend that much on white puff that's gona be worn for couple of hours and in Kuwait's case divorced after a year or so! So my question is..

A. How much did the already wed Brides spent on their dress?
B. How much did the Bride To Be are going to spend on their dress?
C. How much would the Bride Wannabe's think they will spend on their dress??
D. How much do the Grooms to be or has been think a bride's dress should cost?

Ideally I would kill for an Elie Saab specially designed gown but realistically its way over priced! Seeing his dresses are around 30,000KWD I am not willing to spend more than 5 or £6,000. So how much are you going to cough up for the white puff??

Note: Seeing money is an icky subject for some to discuss all Brides Been, To Be, and Wannabe's can leave their Price ranges as annoynmous.

I didn't get a dress from the bridal section because they were all big (cinderella/princess style). So, a KWD 1,300 Jenny Packham left me breathless;)

Yara said...

I wasnt a bridzilla or interested in every detail of the wedding and obsessing about everything.. Even my dress we just went to one place and i liked it and got it from there ( Ostoura in Sal7ya) it was around 1500 kd, the wedding was at our house and my mom took care of everything.. my makeup was expensive though, by Munira Al-Faray it cost 500 kd

I would never pay for a dress that costs as much as a car. A 20,000 KD dress that will end up never worn again in my closet?

hatha fisaq.. I'd rather my parents give me the money instead to put it in my kids education fund.

Soul !! no wedding? :(

jesterat314 said...

I'm going to spend no more than 50 bucks on her dress, and with the economy nowadays, thats like 250 fils.. there you go..

No, realistically, there is a limit, but how much i dont know.. 12 million might be a tad too much though..

By the way, whats up with the expensive makeup.. ?

Hmmmm ;> i see that ur willing to entertain the notion of a white dress/marriage ;> that makes me happy ;>

Do I have to buy my second wife a dress as well!?? Please say no!

Âme said...

A good custom made bridal dress would come anywhere around 3000KD - 5000KD and custom jewelry would cost more.

My grand mother got it stitched for my mother, completely done at home even the woven fabric. They just bought the jewels and other stones to be embedded.

The dress had little thin stick like pockets to hold fresh flowers. That's the best I like in that dress.

Its simple and no glitter, yet very elegant. Only 4 colored diamonds, rest were white.

The fabric gives a very special touch. Ethnic.

I don't blame you the ones they sell in Kuwait are way tOO puffy.. just a q.. aren't ya worried someone would show up wearing the same dress? seeing its not from the bridal collection..

yara:
now you're not the average bride!! usually girls go nuts when they're planning their big day! that's a good price.. but the make up sounds pricey is she good at least?

WooWoO:
so your opting for a wed and dash bride without the white puff? screw the kids take the money and spend it on your honeymoon :p
You got a lifetime to worry about the little bastards..I see leave the worrying for when you get them..

Jester:
Hahhahahah!! Dude you're cheap! magrooda ely btakhthik :p obviously 12mil is way too much but I might gor the 2nd most expensive white puff at 8mil! that sounds better doesn't it :p

FourMe said...

Jester:
Oww the make up is part of the whole shabang.. you probably haven't heard of the people who fly in the makeup specialists from Lebanon and other places for around 5,000kd! a dress you'd say fine you can stare at it till the end of time but water paints scribbled on the face for 6 hours thn washed off!! that's like pouring money down the drain!

Dr:
No n0 noOoo not entertaining anything its just that I would kill for an Elie white puff, the shabka, getting laid for one night and divorcing the bastard the next day:D

haso0na elmal3o0na:
If you're her first then I am sorry to say you have to :/ Or better yet let her borrow your 1st wife's dress :p

I would probably buy a very simple dress- short preferably or ankle length, Audrey Hepburn style not more than 600KD but then I never plan to have a traditional big wedding anyway. Just a family gathering where I can walk around and have fun.
