- Wedding: January 2013
I’m new to this and this is my first post but I’ve used everyone’s posts as a resource for so long I figured it was about time!
So my story is as follows: my FI and I have been together for over 5 years now (we started dating in high school/ beginning of college). We went through college together and now he is trying to join the Navy’s Special Operations community. I’m super excited about this and am trying to be as supportive as possible!
What this all means though, is that we potentially need to be married way quicker than we thought! We had a couple of ideas- the first was depending on his schedule, if it moves too quick we would just get our license early and then have the actual wedding when things calm down. The other idea is to try and get married around Christmas time this year!
Either way- I’m trying to be prepared for both options. I fell in love with the attached dress but unfortunately it’s from a designer thats not very well known and I doubt I could even get my hands on the dress even if I could afford the full price (whatever that might be!).
So far I’ve seen some pretty good reviews of Coral’s Bridal and Jasmine’s Bridal. I emailed both of them for quotes and I’m just wondering if any of you have a preference/ suggestion. Originally my mom and I thought we would have a local seamstress make it but unfortunately she said that she couldn’t do the boning in the dress because it would be too complicated (kinda sad I like supporting local business).
Thanks bees for all your help!
P.S. this gown is from the 2013 collection by Franc Sarabia
