Another 2-dress Bride here!!!
Posted 05 July 2009 - 04:21 PM
I swore that I wouldn't be a 2-dress bride but I can now see how we brides can get easily carried away! I still love my Maggie but I saw this other dress in a bridal magazine and fell in love at first sight. *Sigh!* I didn't want to spend more $$ on a 2nd dress, but I realized it may be the best solution. It is a Pronovias dress. La Sposa Madeira. I tried her on at the flagship store and fell in love all over again, but I couldn't fathom spending that much on a 2nd dress!! I searched high and low on the internet hoping that another bride was selling hers and I had no luck for a few weeks, until the sun shined down on me last week! A bride on craigslist was reluctantly willing to part ways with this gem of a dress. We negotiated and she became all mine for $300 and she threw in a free veil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Apparently, she needed the money more than the dress - post wedding bills were calling! I still can't believe my luck, but I can only guess it was meant to be. I highly suggest searching on craigslist or ebay or preownedweddingdresses.com for highly discounted designer dresses! I've heard lots of success stories from brides that have gone this route. My Madeira dress is perfect in weight for the beach and more appropriate, I think. I am beyond ecstatic - hopefully I'll be posting pics of me in it soon. So the plan is to wear my Madeira for my beach wedding and the Maggie for the vow renewals at our AHR. Mine will be ivory in color.
Here are some photos of the dress on a model, who rocks it btw!

Definitely one of those things that was "just meant to be"
