Who paid for your dress

Recommended Posts

Fi and I are paying for the wedding.  When I started dress shopping, I had gone out to a few stores with FI's mom and by MOH (they live in a different city than my parents).  We had seen a few that I liked, but the sample of one I was looking for was way too big, so I had to look around at some other stores to see if anyone carried it in a smaller size.  It's hard to judge the overall look when the dress is 10 sizes too big and clamped here there and everywhere.  So my mom and I went out to a couple stores in our city.  She told me straight up that she was paying for my dress.  I wasn't expecting her pay but I was very grateful she made the offer.

When we announced our engagement and destination wedding my dad promptly transferred us $5000 to make sure we could pay for our trip.  When I picked out a wedding dress my mom volunteered to pay.

 

My FI family hasn't mentioned anything yet, which surprises me.  But we're just planning things as if we're paying, and if they want to contribute then hooray!

My dad said he would pay for half of my dress but then my sister was in a bad finacial situation so the money for my half of the dress went to her. Luckily I didn't go overboard and buy a super expensive dress!

My parents have always said they will help me with my wedding but once we are engaged I plan to go "dress shopping" in my home town with my mom and sister- try on a ton of dresses and then surprise my mom by trying on her gown. I hope it fits and is properly preserved because I would love to wear it with some minor changes. I remember her saying that my sister or I could change it if we wanted but neither one of us ever pursued it. I'm assuming she wont suspect that I want to wear it. sneaky sneaky :)

 

Anyways- if I can't wear it for whatever reason I will use the money they give me to pay for the dress because I feel sentimental in that way.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white.
