      Candie - you're absolutely right. Hopefully some of the gorgeous sweet 16 dresses featured here will help those looking for them :)

      Katie - the best thing about them is that they're timeless and can be used for other occasions, should the wearer wish to get them out of the wardrobe once again :)

      Wonderful FD! I'm sure it can be overwhelming for parents to see the price tags of some of these dresses, as well as the attitudes of the 'prinesses' they're shopping for. Who doesn't want the dress to be both 'perfect' and 'inexpensive'? Ok, so I'm sure there are those who's pocketbooks are deep, but not most of us. Thank you for picking out some great ones!
