After shopping at David’s Bridal and a couple of boutiques, I think I’ve found The One. I tried on Sincerity Bridal 3666 in ivory and fell in love. It will be even more perfect with a sash. I was going to likely walk away from it because at $852, it was out of my budget. I had tried one on that was similar and half the price at David’s Bridal (WG3339). Tonight at my dad’s birthday party, my stepmother offered to help with some of the cost! I was floored! She wants me to have the dress that I love. I was really appreciative, but later I told Fiance that I’m concerned about one thing. My mom wanted to pay for my dress, but she is disabled, broke, and not in good health, so not likely to come into money. I reassured her that it was okay, I want her to save money for her meds and things. But if she finds out my stepmom bought over half of it, she will be devastated. My mom has mental health problems and a dramatic/emotional personality, so I’m not sure how to handle this situation. Any ideas?
Also, any Sincerity brides out there?

Could you explain this to your stepmom and ask her not to mention it to her?

Can you talk to your stepmom and ask her to keep this under lock and key?

@seevan07: Could you ask step mom to keep it between you? I hope she would be ok with that, as I would assume that she didn’t offer to pay just so she could take credit. My Mother-In-Law loves to speNd money and has spent a fortune on gifts for my shower already and she asked my Fiance if she should give me some in private as to not hurt my moms feelings since she can’t afford that much.

Yea, def ask your step mom to “vault” it! If she is any bit aware of your mom’s condition, then she should understand.

Yeah, I can, I just hope she won’t want to mention it for attention or on accident bc she can be a blabber. She knows my mom’s issues and feels for her. My stepmom has two sons, so I’m the only girl to dote on. I’ll have to think of a nice gift for her.
