@calgarybride2015 That's where I got my inspiration picture from! But I found the same topper on eBay for half the price. I had to wait about a month and a half for it to get here but it was only $12 with shipping. 

 

Funny story: When it arrives in the box, the glitter side is covered with blue film for protection but I thought it was the color of the topper and was really upset for a little bit. I buy stuff from China on eBay all the time, but it's a gamble of whether you'll get high quality stuff or not. I was pleasantly surprised with the topper. Like other people said, the toppers look much smaller in-person

@TNT2015

Thats a great deal! Can you tell me what the sellers name is on eBay? I also love eBay and have bought lots of wedding stuff on there so far. Good to know which sellers are selling quality items.

@calgarybride2015 I always check a combination of Etsy, eBay, and AliExpress to see if I can find things for cheaper.

 

@yycbride2016 The seller was suntopfavor. Here's a link to the actual topper I got.

Thanks @TNT2015 I'm going to check it out! I kind of want a custom one with me & mrs on it. I've seen ones that have a starfish instead of "&". They are more money than I can really justify though.

I've been neglecting my planning thread lately, but I've been super busy at work, and just started working out 5 days a week so when I get home all I want to do is sleep. 

 

I've done a lot of work for my welcome bags, which I'll have to take pictures of later and post. Two major updates are that I picked my photographer and my reception dress is on the way!!

 

Reception Dress

I love my wedding dress (see post above) but while it's fabulous, its fitted in the legs which restricts dancing and its SO hot. So, I decided I needed a reception dress. My budget was limited because I spent the majority of my budget on the other dress, so I changed some numbers in the budget to make it work. The FI has always said that he can get his outfit for much cheaper than what I budgeted, so I skimmed a bit from there to make it work  :D He still hasn't picked what he wants to wear (!!!) so he better be right.

 

I decided to do a custom dress from China after reading some threads on WeddingBee. She gets really good reviews for simple dresses and is very affordable. The dress cost $175 and took about 1 month to make. It just shipped out yesterday and should be here by next week! I'll be sure to take pictures when it arrives. Here are some pictures she took of it before it shipped out.

@TNT2015 OH thats gorgeous! I love it! That looks like it will be much easier to dance in and enjoy your self without feeling restricted! Good for you for getting it at such a great price. I almost bought my gown online too but I chickened out. Can't wait to see pictures of it when you get it in the mail!

My reception dress came!! and for what I paid, it's really nice. Comparing it to my actual wedding dress, you can tell it's cheaper, but it's definitely lightweight and much less hot. This one is a corset back too, but it was much easier to finagle getting it to stay up than the other one. I had to cover my face in the pic with me since my FI knows about this board.

 

My only problem with it is that the boning in the top portion is flimsy, so I'm going to replace it with stiffer boning, and hopefully that + doing the corset up right will make the top fit better. I can sew and do minor alterations, but if it needs work that cost a lot of $$, I'd rather just sell it and be hot in my wedding dress than spend a bunch more $ on it.

It's really pretty. I can see what you said about the top boning. Hopefully you can fix that yourself. I think it looks great though and not cheap!

Your reception dress is gorgeous! I love it. I'm sure you can fix the boning in it to make it stay up better. What a great deal though!
