Any last minute dress purchaser’s

Recommended Posts

I am fed up with the dress search! I just want to get married to my BFF and have a good time with my family and friends. I feel like I am going to look nice in whatever I choose to wear and right now the dress search has gotten on my last nerve and become too big of an issue. I am confused on which dress to purchase. Even though you lovely BDW ladies have given me some good advice, Iâ€m still not sold on one and I donâ€t feel like trying on anymore anytime soon. Typically when I go in the store and see something I like and just buy it, itâ€s normally a keeper. When I go in the store and have to think about a purchase I sometimes end up never wearing it. As well as I often have clothes that hang in my closet and donâ€t get worn for a long time after I buy them. So am I crazy for wanting to purchase my dress last minute? Where would be the best places to go to at the last minute? Has anyone experienced this?

I see that your wedding date isn't until May, so I wouldn't even worry about it right now. I just bought my dress for our wedding in February. It won't be here until a few weeks before the wedding, but that will give me just enough time.

In my opinion, if you aren't "feeling" a dress yet, then hold off and look in a month or two. I agree that marrying your best friend is the most imporant part, but you also want to feel gorgeous walking down the aisle. I say hold off for now and then start fresh.

Just make sure that you purchase something 4 months before your wedding because that seems to be the average ordering time.

Good luck....and try to enjoy the shopping experience!

I am super last minute. I have put off buying a looking and buying a dress since I did not want to get suck into the chaos of trying on dresses and stuff. Well, now I am having a tough time getting a dress because I feel like I am running out of time. Bad idea on my part. Also, I thought it would be easy to get a simple destination dress..but I thought wrong. Good luck with your search. The earlier you search the more options you have.

    • 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.
