My $70 (plus $70 shipping) wedding dress is here!
Posted 28 April 2007 - 04:16 PM
Since getting the dress, I have started to think that I needed to go a whole different direction (less poofy, more body conscious) and have gone into Defcon Four thinking about what the hell I am going to do within the next two months about a g.d. wedding dress.
What is wrong with me?
Should I just get that one altered? I'm sure I'll get over this and be fine with it.
My mom said she would totally foot whatever REAL wedding dress I want, but I just think it's ridiculous to spend a lot of $$ on something you will seriously only wear once. I am just way too practical/cheap to be a beautiful bride, I guess.
What a crap week.
Okay, enough of the gloom. Just an update!

This is what I did and then I looked for the dresses on ebay, and I ended up buying one that was a similar style to ones I had tried that I liked
but sometimes you can find the exact dress too.
Another option, which might be a really good one for you if you don't want to spend a lot, have you checked out davids bridal??
They have a lot of different styles and a lot of different prices, and they ususally have sales every few weeks, so you'll be able to save even more.
Don't wear a dress you hate, but if you like it and think you can be happy with it, then get it altered. But if you really think you don't want it don't bother with the alterations.

Thats just my opinion. I wish you all the best!!

I had the same issues about not wanting to spend lots of money on a dress. My original dress (now reception dress) was $80 and then I got a more traditional wedding dress on ebay after I had second thoughts for $70.
I actually had fallen in love with a Watters dress, but luckily, I didn't have time left to order that for my wedding!
You can try ebay again for a less poofy dress. Also places like Norstroms and JCrew have beachy dresses that are pretty inexpensive!

I've been looking online at all the discount places, I also found a couple of Pronovias dresses I liked that someone's selling new on eBay, I posted on another thread, but here they are:
My mom and I are going dress shopping (ugh) again this Saturday, so I can try things on that might be similar and see how I like them. If I can't make myself like any dress, though, I'm taking the too-big dress to my tailor.
I have to tell you guys, I am really struggling in my head about spending any more money on this. I mean, really. A dress you only wear once? But my mother is being pretty insistent that I fall in love with whatever I wear, so here we go.
