Hi Ladies! This is such an awesome space for us September brides! I had no idea! 🙂 My wedding date is 9.10.11! It seems so close! We have all of our vendors booked minus limo & florist…(we’re going to order flowers & have my fiance’s grandma help me put them together! ) I picked the bridesmaids dresses, MOH’s & MINE!! 🙂 I got it off the rack and wasn’t expecting to find it so soon but it was a steal & had to take advantage! The question I have is this….
Is it okay to keep the dress in the garment bag it came in for the remainder of the time?? It seems like it’s so long to keep in the closet? & it’s in my aunt’s closet for that matter…..I don’t have room in mine…& I don’t want the man to accidently see it! what do you think??
Also, I’m looking for teal heels for both the bridal party & myself…prefferably low-budget seeing as their dresses were already on the high end….
Thanks Ladies! 🙂

@mrs.ball2b: What kind of fabric is the dress? Is it bunched up at the bottom in the garment bag?
You will probably need to get it pressed/steamed prior to your wedding if the bottom is not hanging flat.
As for shoes, have you checked out zappos.com or 6pm.com? Also try looking at ninashoes.com.
I’m a September bride too and I cannot believe how quickly it seems to be coming!

I’ve always been told to not leave dresses in a garment bag because it can yellow the fabric. I’m no seamstress, lol, but it’s what they all tell me!

Mine is in a garment bag in my closet (live with FI, but he doesn’t want to see it before the day so he won’t be peeking). It was also off the rack so it is already really wrinkly and will need a good steam cleaning before the big day.
Oh, it is also already an off-white color and with the wedding having a ton of vintage-y elements, I’m not bothered if the dress gets more yellow. 🙂

@KatNYC2011: It’s lacy & already an off-white color so i’m not toooo worried about it changing color, but i just wanted to get feedback. 🙂
@R.Elliott: Good to hear! Thanks! That’s the same with my dress too! It’s has a very vintage feel to it & is lacy with beadwork from top to bottom. I was already thinking that it should be fine if it turns a tiny bit more yellow-ish but I just wanted to know if I was the only girl out there with a dress in the closet already? 😉
Thanks for the advice ladies!

@mrs.ball2b: I think I purchased mine back in August, lol, so you’re definitely not the only one who has bought one! Mine’s supposed to come in soonish :).
