But not because I was unsure, it's because I'm being a savvy shopper instead. I live in NJ,and there is no sales tax on wedding dresses in NJ. PLUS, there's a great bridal boutique about 15min from my house highly recommended by a friend who purchased her dress there for her recent September wedding. The NJ boutique has a trunk show in a few weeks for my dress' designer which means about a 10% discount if I place my order at the trunk show, AND the alterations are about $200 less than Kleinfeld who charges $700 flat fee. So.....I think I'll be making out pretty well!!  Yay : ) I'll be purchasing a dress in a few weeks but I can say my search is over!



 


Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.

      For anyone travelling with Sunwing!!!!  They have a dress program!!!!  I didn't know about it, but my TA is an angel and he signed me up for it, what does this mean?  There is a designated spot to hang your dress....make sure you ask about it, whichever supplier you are flying with...

      One more tip - when you get on that plane, make sure you TELL the stewardess NOT TO FOLD YOUR DRESS.  They have closets and other methods of hanging your dress, so don't just take their word that it has to be folded and put in the overhead bins.  They lie lol.

      My alterations place told me the same thing and of course I didn't listen on the way there and my dress was the ONLY dress folded - it was hung with everyone else's but they put the loop on the bottom of the garment bag over the top of the hanger...It was bustled in the garment bag and the loop for my bustle ended up breaking...I was pissed...
