Ladies please help, i hate my dress:(

Recommended Posts

Ladies, I need some input on what to do... I had bought a dress from Kleinfeld's on their sample sale day, my future mother-in-law (who retired as owner of a bridal salon & who will be doing my alterations) was supposed to be there to help me find "the dress" but dropped out last minute, so it was just me and my mom. Well things started off ok but then I began to feel really rushed and ended up buying a dress that is just HORRIBLEsad.gif everytime I look at it I cry and to make matters worse my future mother-in-law says we can't do some alterations that we were needing to do! So I am stuck with a $1400.00 dress that makes me cry!! Why did I do this... Does anyone have any suggestion my wedding is in JUNE........

Been there, done that sad.gif I did cry. Many, many times. And then I bought a second dress.

It was terrible, but it had to be done. I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror with that dress on, much less look at my wedding pictures for years. I just couldn't.

 

So, I tried to sell the dress I bought and bought a new one.

 

Good luck!

I agree with Tiseege. If you feel that strongly about that dress then maybe it's time to put it up for sale. In the meantime hit up bridal salons looking for the dress that WILL make you smile on your big day.

i agree with the ladies hon. this is one of those situations where you might have to cut another part of the budget to get the dress you really want. the dress will be in pics and videos FOREVER and it will be a HUGE part of the memories you have of your wedding. the dress you hate, might be the one someone really loves!! so get out there and shop shop shop, remember you'll need time for alterations and stuff!! good luck :)

    • 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.
