Recommended Posts

I can't believe you found such a good deal!! Thats awesome. I hope that some of your good luck rubs off on me...I'm still looking. I think the dress will look great in the TTD photos bc its so sparkly. Good choice!

UGGGHH! SO sorry I haven't posted pics of myself in the dress yet!!! It came in, and fits me beautifully, but I got into issues with my mother on the day that I went and showed it to her, thinking she would be taking the pics I would post -- family drama!!!

 

REMINDER to ALL: You can pick and choose your friends, but you can't pick your FAMILY!

Thanks, Ladies! Again, I just need to find a way to get some pics of myself, and I will post them up on here as soon as possible! The dress actually looks a little bit different in person than it did online, but I was pleasantly surprised, and you can't beat the value on a dress you want to "trash" anyway!

 

HAPPY FRIDAY to all!

My drama with my Mama about doing a TTD in my actual wedding dress has come to an end as of this morning! HOORAY FOR eBAY, I SAY! I feel like I searched the far reaches of the planet (well, of the internet anyway) to find a dress for less than $100 that wasn't completely hideous, and I had a little luck! Taking the advice of some of you who highly recommended looking on eBay for a cheaper dress for the TTD worked out beautifully. I ended up being the only bidder on this dress, which just so happens to be in my size, for only...drumroll, please --$75! The seller is even covering shipping costs!

But, I wanted to post it on here and see what everyone thinks before I get too excited, you know? BE BRUTALLY HONEST, BDW Ladies!

Here are the pics the seller took of herself in the dress:

I hear ya on the mama drama: every time I mentioned wanting a TTD shoot, she looked like she was going to cry because she wants me to wear it for AHRshitfan.gif

Sorry, you're dealing with this I am still interested in seeing the dress on you.
I ended up buying a $150 dress at David's Bridal to trash. My mom doesn't know yet, but she better be happy cuz she got her way although it cost me an extra $150!

I love the TTD idea.... how is everyone going about doing that? on the day of the wedding? or the day after? Ive just recently heard of this and would love to know more about TTD.

Thanks.

THANKS, "Destination"!

 

I'm psyched that it sounds like you know exactly where I am coming from on the mom-issue! And, get this! Even though I spent the extra money to get a separate dress for the TTD, she's STILL not happy! The thinks the idea is completely ridiculous, and I don't see the point in arguing with her anymore of the topic, but I find it reassuring that I won't have to worry about whether or not the dress can be dry-cleaned back to perfection, since I don't plan on saving it anyway!

 

Maybe I'll try to sell it in as-is condition after the wedding to another bride in search of a cheapie dress for their TTD?!
