? for the girls that have more than one dress

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering why you ended up with more than one. (aside from if you are getting a second one to trash)

 

Did you end up with 2 because you started shopping too soon and your tastes changed?

Good question, I have always wondered how that happens also!

I just changed my mind after having a panic attack in the dress (I bought it impulsively)...I think I realized it wasn't what I really wanted.

Just an FYI - some of the dresses I've tried on and loved take up to 8 months just to get in, that doesn't include alterations or anything (I think that's an extreme case) . They say though, that you should start looking quite seriously a year beforehand. Or at least according to some of the salon people I talked to. I've gone dress shopping 4 or 5 times and get a tweaked idea of what I want every single time. Everytime I find one that I think is the one, I wait a few weeks and go try it on again. If I still love it, we call it the "benchmark dress" and we compare everything to it.

I have the exact same fear. I've found a handful of ones that I love, but am not sure if I've found "THE" dress. But I don't think there's any harm in going early. If anything, I think you'll just get a better idea of what you want... plus, it's SO fun!!

I have two. I found a dress I loved, it was $1500, which was more than I wanted to spend, but I really liked it. So I brought my mom & my sister, my mom thought it was too much for a DW, and she was practically attacking the poor saleswoman over the price! So I was really frustrated after that and decided I was just going to look for a dress on ebay.

 

Well, I ended up getting a gorgeous dress on ebay, its so pretty, the material is so soft and perfect and it fits perfect and I only paid 225 for a dress that sells for $1000. But all I could do is think about the dress I really wanted. So I went to the salon last month and ordered the one I wanted and it will be in one month before my wedding, yikes!

 

I think its okay for you to start looking now, but if you're nervous you might change your mind, then wait to order when you get to about 8 months away or so, I think by then you should have a good idea of what you want.

When I first got engaged Jcrew had dresses on sale. I got one for $70 and one for $80. I figured at those prices I might as well try them out. If I loved one great - if not no big loss. Neither was the one so I ended up with my "real" dress. Now I'm going to use a cheapie for TTD and sell the other.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
