Who paid for your dress

Recommended Posts

My mom bought me my dress. My fiancé and I are paying for the wedding. I'm her only daughter and my mom never really had a "wedding". Very grateful that she is doing that. I knew I didn't want an expensive dress since it would be in the beach so nothing too fancy. I made her laugh when I told her I needed another dress for my ttd. :)

I had every intention from the beginning to find an inexpensive dress, and I'm proud to say that I paid for it myself. My mom did say later that she wished I had picked something more traditonal and ballgown-y. Ha! That's why I didn't take her with me!

I paid for my own dress and my fiance and I paid for the wedding but our parents did give us checks as gifts for the wedding costs which helped with the bills quite a bit!

I am still in the planning stages but my mom is retiring this year after 35 years, and my brothers were asking what she's going to do with her retirement/pension stuff and she said one of the first things I want to be able to do is buy Annie's wedding dress.. I was like omg! I was totally planning to get it myself.. but this will be a very nice help. Mind you, I was never planning to spend more then like $1000-$1200 on the dress (and if I can find a nice one for like $500-$600 I'll go that route), and I'm not planning to go over that now. Now there has been a little bit of discussion because she likes me in a certain style of dress which is NICE but I really want to explore this other style... we'll see.. it's a 10 hour drive from our house to the nearest David's Bridal.. who have a dress on their site now that I have to try.. lol

I paid for my dress, my fiance and I are paying for all our wedding expenses...  Unfortunately, our families are not very supportive of our choice to have a destination wedding, so my mom wouldn't even tag along to come watch me try on dresses.

Don't feel bad because I know the feeling. Majority of our families are the same way. The only reason my mother is coming is because I am paying for it. angry.gifconfused.gif Otherwise she would be at home wanting to see pictures when we got back. So far she has not given any $$$$$, but wants to invite everyone under the sun the the shower. rolleyes.gifangry.gif

    • 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.
