So I finally found MY dress after 5 months of engagement… My mother and FI keep telling me to hurry up and order the dress from the salon…but I just couldn’t make myself do it. We have the money to buy two of these dresses if I wanted, but it just seemed senseless to me to spend money on a dress I would only have on for a few hours. So I’ve been online 24/7 looking for a pre-owned…
I’ve found the right size, but not the right color…
The right color but not the right size….
Similar gowns that weren’t quite right….
And Monday I almost pulled the trigger on one that was a couple sizes too big and figured I’d just alter it.
Then yesterday I looked ONE MORE TIME….and found the EXACT DRESS BRAND NEW WITH TAGS for $400! And my mother decided she wants to pay for half of it! So I get my dress for $200 basically!
Sweet! Persistance pays off! 🙂
(I know no one really gives a rats a$$, but I’ve been totally stressing over this, and needed to document my success somewhere!)

@zippylef: $300! That’s awesome! I did find one for $300, but it was the wrong size, so I figured I’d end up paying more in alterations.
It’s not a very expensive dress to begin with….
It only costs $600 from the salon…..but $200 savings is $200 savings!!

Congrats! Great bargin.
I do sympathise with going crazy about little things you think other’s will never notice… also guilty of having bridezilla moments. Plus more money to spend on other stuff 🙂
