So, as soon as I got engaged, it was a big joke.. well maybe not really... that I would find my wedding dress at a thrift store or Craig's List. Well, I didn't. I actually fell in love with a beautiful designer gown at a boutique, and it was about $1000... which is actually the cheapest dress I even tried on! Wedding gowns are insanely expensive these days! We didn't buy the dress at the boutique because there was still one more boutique to go to the next weekend. My mom ended up finding my dress online from Deanna Bridals for $312... and we ordered it. You may think I'm crazy for ordering it from China, but it said the designer name on it so I thought it HAD to be the exact dress. Well it came in the mail two nights ago, and I facetimed with my family as they opened up the package for me. Turns out it isn't the designer dress but a replica. My mom and stepmom are on their way to my apartment for me to try it on. I'm so nervous! I hope I love it as much as the original! Hopin', wishin' and prayin' it works for me because there's no returns, only exchanges!
About the dresses above... aren't they beautiful?? These I found at the Goodwill for $40!! I think they're beautiful, but they just weren't the style I was going for... shabby chic, duh! haha. The bottom one fit me perfect! What do you think of them?
Would you ever order your wedding gown from China or buy it at a thrift store?
