    Hello Ladies!

    I’ve been off the forum for a while. I’ve been enmeshed in dresses and rings. Anyway, I am the girl on a budget (as you all know). So, I am always trying to find was to cut corners. For those of you who are in the same boat, I thought I’d let you know how I saved around $350 dollars on my wedding dress.

    After many weeks of shopping at many local stores, I found “the one”. You know the felling, when you put the dress on and the butterflies in your stomach start fluttering like crazy. The saleswoman almost had to literally rip the dress off my body! Anyway, my budget for my dress and veil was not to exceed $1,000 with tax. And needless to say, this was not going to happen at the store where I found it. So I shopped around. And I shopped some more with no success.

    Then I found this Ebay store called Val’s Collections. The Ebay store sells discount certificates for dresses that are sold at an online store at VAL Collections - Wedding Dress, Bridal Gown. How it works is you buy a certificate that is valued at around $75 for around $40 on Ebay then you apply it to a purchase on the website. The dresses on the website are already hundreds of dollars cheaper than they are in stores and then you save even more money on top of that!

    At first, I was skeptical, but the owner has excellent reviews on Ebay. She has also been extremely responsive and answered ALL of my many questions in a timely manor. SO I bought the dress. I will not receive it for another couple of months (the delivery time was the same with the local stores). But, when I do, I will let you all know.

    Anyway, if you are trying to save money check it out.

    And, without further delay…..here is a link to my dress!!!! MaggieSottero.com - Collection

    It is the Maggie and Midgley ASM3050. I am soooooo excited!!!
