I’ve not purhased anything yet but it is hard!  There’s always so may pretty ribbons, flowers, fascinators!


P.s. I just bought fabric to make my first dress by pattern: a reproduction regency era day dress.  We’ll see how it goes.  I can handsew and I can sometimes follow instructions.  Put the to two together and we’ll see what happens! 😛

i think that is awesome that you’re going to make your own dress. can’t wait to see what it looks like when you are done making it! as for me, all i have bought so far is fabric that matches the color of my BM dresses. i’m giving them fabric to use when they look for their dress. that’s it for now but i have a feeling that those wedding purchases will become more common in the upcoming months!

I bought an amazing white dress sun dress that I thought would just be perfect for something wedding related, two years before I was engaged.

It made a lovely bridal shower dress.

@Creiddylad:  At least it isn’t monogramed costers or something. 🙂 If it’s something that you hypothetically COULD use, even without a wedding, I tihnk you’re safe. 🙂

@Creiddylad:  A few months ago I bought a silver sixpence from my SO’s birth year. You know.. “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe”? Eh. It was a couple bucks. I don’t feel bad about it. 😛

@Creiddylad:  oh wow, those buttons are gorgeous. I didnt know you’re going to be making your dress! That’s amazing. I wish I was that talented haha. I’ve been looking for specific items as opposed to ‘ideas’ lately, bookmarking exact items that I want to buy, but I havnt actually purchased anything (so far :P). So I’m right there on that crazy train with you!

@Creiddylad:  Love the buttons AND the ring!

At least you didn’t go nuts and buy a dress before you’re in a relationship. I worked with a girl who did that. Creeeeeeeeeeeeptastic.
