After months of waffling, and telling myself just to wear a dress I already own, I finally bit the bullet and spent too much money ($163) on a rehersal dinner dress that I absolutely LOVE!
Also, after months of searching for a cheap alternative to the crystal cuff that I really wanted, I finally decided that, it’s my wedding gd-it! and I ordered this way-too-expensive bridal cuff (in a 1″ band instead of 1 1/2″) ($100).
These may not seem like extravagant purchases to some wallets, but I am a student. I probably (definitely) shouldn’t have spent this much money. But I can’t say I’m sorry about it. And as much as I hate my birthday, it did come in handy because I got $200 to blow on these silly (and amazingly beautiful) items!!
What did YOU spend too much money on?? Show me, so that I don’t feel so guilty.

I love ALL their stuff. They have beautiful dresses, shoes, lingerie. That whole website is a vintage girls’ heaven. The dress is called the “Honey” dress, and comes in all different colors.
Also and FYI for anyone curious: The cuff is from “The Crystal Rose” on etsy. Her stuff is gorgeous. I think I have favorited everything in her shop.

I found this dress through modcloth, actually. They called it the “aisle be there” dress, but it was always out of stock. Luckily, they identified the maker of the dress, and I was able to track down their website with a little detective work I like to call google.
But more to the point… didn’t anyone spend way too much on anything?? SHOW ME!

Not really. I guess things I spent money on that I didn’t need to:
My bridal shower dress and shoes. I already have more than enough shoes and I could have bought a cheaper dress BUT both were on sale and I had to have them LOL. Both were 50% off so they were a steal and ahalf. And the shoes I can wear for the Bachelorette, E-serenade and RD. So win win.

I take exception to your statement that you have “more than enough shoes.” I don’t know what that means, and I don’t believe it could be true.

It’s amazing what you can talk yourself into buying when you think “I only get married once!”
I splurged on shoes (two different pairs), our ketubah and decor items. I also ended up spending more on hair and makeup than I originally anticipated – but it was totally worth it!
I ended up renting a dress from Rent the Runway for our rehearsal dinner since I didn’t want to purchase a white dress that I would probably never end up wearing again.

For my wedding? Mine were my boots. But I can wear them forever, not just when we eloped. I had been lusting over them for about 2 years, and decided my elopement was reason enough to justify it! They are Old Gringos.

@GroovyHippieChick: So pretty!!
@PhillyProper: I feel like I have talked myself into far more than I should have. I keep watching my budget tick up…
@GFerg: Nice that you can rewear them! I’m sure I’l rewear the dress whenever I have an excuse, but I don’t know when I’ll wear that bracelet again!

I’m not going to comment because frankly I feel guilty in looking at your extravagant purchase….clearly I spent too much money.
However I wanted to say that dress is GORGEOUS and that cuff is to die for. You will look stunning!

@Treejewel19: Don’t be like that! This is America (at least, where I’m posting from) and you don’t have to feel guilty because you have more money than someone else. That is Capitalism, baby.
It’s extravagant for me because I’m a student right now. Hopefully, in a few years, I will have a new definition of extravagant. 😉
