So what that I know about dresses….does it matter that Im not engaged yet? With shows like SYTTD and Bridezillas all over the TV, its pretty obvious that we are living in society where knowing about dresses, silhouttes, fabric, etc isnt just for brides to know about!!! So bring on the lace, the mermaid gowns, the beading!! If wanting to know about pretty things is wrong, I dont wanna be right
So three cheers to my fellow bees that know the difference between a Pnina and a Melissa Sweet! Big shout out to the ladies that can spot a Jcrew wedding gown a mile away!! We are NOT living in a dream world or desperate just because we have an interst in things that other women might not!

@mrssoontobeh: It pays to be an educated consumer. My mom always told me that. Weddins are so expensive. I do not have the disposible income to go shopping willy-nilly without any kind of thought about how I want to look and feel. I am in Theater So i have worn alot of dresses, I know which fabrics I like and don’t (no to satin or tafetta). It makes me SMART to know how much which designers cost. It’s smart of me to know the botiques in my area and which designers they carry. it is smart of me to know about The Bridal Garden! The Economy is not friendly. Being anything other then an educated cosumer is Ignorance…or Eliteism
Side note: Do you remember the bride from SYTTD who was there with her mom trying on Pnina’s willy-nilly? The mom said that 3Gs was her budget and the bride is trying on $9,200 Pnina’s! When the mom asked for the price, the bride said she didn’t know. the mom says “What, you go trying on dresses willy-nilly” and the bride says “Well of course it’s expensive…it’s P-ni-na.” And she was basically expecting her FMIL to foot the rest of bill. SMH if someone was genorous enough to offer me 3 grand to buy a dress, and I am not puttin anything else I would certainly be respectful of that price point….but some people aren’t respectful….

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Im with you….im in the fashion biz and would love to make a move into the wedding field (my SO tells me I would be a FAB wedding planner, so maybe someday Ill give it a shot). I just think people should realize that just because they know nothing about dresses doesnt mean that others cant
Sorry for the rant….Im just starting to get a bit fed up with the snippiness of the community at times. We are supposed to be here to support eachother, not call eachother DESPERATE just because we might show an interest in weddings. As you and I both showed, our current professions lend themselves to knowing about dresses and fabrics and such…
