Should I Buy It

Recommended Posts

Catherine, I thought you were gonna propose to him on Father's day??!!

Maybe he has to S##t or get off the pot! OR, maybe you should wait, I do not know the answer. How long have you two been together? Couldn't you just tell him you found the deal of a lifetime and you would like to take advantage of it? He can only say one of two things, and if it is yes, you buy the gown...if it is not yet, then you have some decisions to make. I honestly think, for your own sanity, it is time to find out what is in your future.

 

Good luck sweetheart,

Lizzy

For ever off and on but we have been back together and commetted for 1 year Sept. Couldn't you just tell him you found the deal of a lifetime and you would like to take advantage of it?
that is or was my plan as well as the package I found in St Thomas. His job will send him and us to Hawaii for free for a conference if he meets a quota. So he is working towards that. Could use that as a platform as well.

I know the feeling all too well!

My fiance was heading to Iraq last year and even though we were already living together ... I told him it would be a lot easier to stick it out with some bling. :-) So, a week before he left, I got it!!! Now, we are so deep into wedding planning it's hard to believe ...and although he's been gone in Iraq since June 18, 2006 -- he will be HOME next month!! And the wedding will be here before we know it. Woo-hoo!!!!smile123.gif

I didn't know your fi is in Iraq, it has had to be a hard year sad.gif. I am so glad that marriage is on the horizon for the two of you! You will both deserve it, and will NEED the vacation. Glad he is coming home you must be crawling out of your skin with anticipation!!! Now forget the wedding (not really, lol), his homecoming, now that is a reason to celebratecheer2.gifcheer2.gif

I also think you should wait. ALSO, I do not think you should be trying dresses on at all. My FH and I talked about marriage and knew it was happening and even picked a month, but until he actually proposed, I refused to try dresses on. I think that would scare the Chit out of most men. I did not want to give him any reason to back down a little. Also, its considered bad luck to try on wedding dresses before you are engaged, you need all the luck you can get right now, don't spoil it :) Oh, I am so NOT superstitious, but some things just seem like they could totally tempt fate to me and this is one of them.

I say wait because it doesn't sounds like you are madly in love with this dress and feelings about dresses have a tendency to change overtime. i think if you bought it now you would just end up finding something you love later and end up looking for a buyer... a PITA!

Oh Catherine I say don't buy it, and stop looking because you will drive yourself mad (and him if he finds out). You will get married when the time is right, no need to jump the gun. The main thing is that he is there for you everyday, right? You don't need a license or a dress for that :o)

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
