Who paid for your dress

Recommended Posts

I paid for my dress. Both my parents are retired and on a tight fixed income. I also paid for their plane tickets. My mother is very eager to help with all my DIY projects though...which works great for me!

I paid for mine. This is my second marriage. I got married 10 yrs ago at the tender age of 21 and my mom paid for that dress. I'm guessing she thinks she already paid for one, not going to another...

Me too! My mom bought my first dress when I was 19. And I hated the dress then and I still do now. I was 5 months pregnant at the time (and huge) so I pretty much had to take whatever second hand dress I could fit into.

So I'm paying for this dress myself and my mom is contributing in other ways.

i also paid for my own dress. that way - it was much easier to stick with the kind of dress i wanted, vs having to take into account alot of opinions (if you're having someone else pay)

I paid for mine! We are actually paying for the whole wedding.

 

About 9 years ago when I bought my first house, my parents gave me the choice of money to help with the down payment, or money for a wedding, I chose the house! Now that the wedding is here, I'm sort of wishing we had some help, but FI's mom is broke to the point that we are going to have to pay for her to come to the wedding, and his dad, although stinkin rich, isnt really in the picture sad.gif

I paid for my dress. My mom would have loved to, but it's just out of her budget. My parents are saving very hard just to pay for their tickets, and they are determined to do so. But even so, I'm prepared to cover their costs if they fall a little short.

 

In any case, I'm glad I paid for it -- that way I don't have to feel any pressure to buy someone else's dream dress!

I paid for my dress at the reasonable price of $452.00 my mom is helping with all of the DIY Projects and my Dad is offering to upgrade us to the Honeymoon suite for our stay. FI and I are paying for everything else for the wedding.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
