What is your favorite "I found it!" moment for a Reem Acra gown?

A bride had come into Vows numerous times specifically in search of Reem Acra gowns, but she always left empty-handed. Reem Acra was the only designer she could picture herself wearing. She knew everything about the designer, from her birthplace to her intricate beadwork patterns. One day, she came back in to retry a Reem Acra gown that she had previously tried on. She felt that the gown was still missing something because she wasn't getting that "feeling." We had just received a rare shipment of Reem Acra veils, and there was one veil in particular that was covered in Reem Acra's signature beading. The veil retailed for over $2,000! Barb placed the cathedral veil on the bride, and she finally had her moment. The best part was that the veil was only $99, and the gown was $1400. She saved thousands of dollars on her entire look!
