dress deal or not...

Recommended Posts

I think I may have found my dress, It's actually a BM dress, but the store had the floor model in white, it fits perfectly looks fantastic and they are getting a replacement floor model in soon so I can probably buy it right off them for less then $280

 

This is it: Venus Bridals

 

The problem is their reason for getting a new floor model, the one I tried on has a blue stain from a seamstresses pen.

 

My mom and I have a few ideas for getting rid of, our disguising the stain and I have asked some theater wardrobe ladies for their advice (I work in theater) and they had some good ideas. I have also contacted Venus Bridal to try and find out what kind of pen their dress makers use so I can target my efforts.

 

Any advice from you guys? I love this dress, but my fiance is worried I am going to go down the aisle with "something blue" on my hip

Well, I don't know anything about getting pen out, but it's a very pretty dress!! I can't imagine it would be some kind of strange super pen that didn't come out like a normal pen...after all, wouldn't a seamstress make sure to use some kind of pen that would come out since he/she is around fabric all the time??

 

Maybe if you're nervous about it you could find a used one or a cheap on on ebay or somewhere else online!

 

I would go for it if you really like the dress...but then, maybe you shouldn't ask me, because I bought two wedding dresses AND two TTDs....I can never make up my mind!

 

Good luck!!

Well the lady who owns the shop is exchanging it for a replacement floor model so she won't sell it.

 

I'm still going to buy that dress style though, $280 is a steal

Ok so if you're brave try white ammonia. I was at a bridal store that is closing so all they had were samples. The dress I liked for my TTD had tons I repeat tons of black marks all over it. She came out with a rag she soaked with the ammonia and with a little bit of time all the marks were coming out perfectly. I still couldn't decide on the dress though...lol.

Depending on where the stain is, my best friends dress actually had a flower that was attached to the side of the dress. Her dress was from Demetrio's and it looked beautiful.

 

Hopefully the mark will come out but if not you have other options.

 

In this pic you can see the flower.

Thanks guys,

 

I've tried the same model on in a size 10, and it fits better then the 12 with the stain, so I am going to order it in a 10

 

I wish everything about planning this wedding was as easy as finding that dress

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
