- Wedding: June 2011
Sorry this is going to be a long post. It has been on my chest and I don’t know who to talk to..
I bought my wedding dress at Priscilla of Boston, full price. It’s Jewel 208. I paid
$2300 for the dress and my parents are extremely UPSET :'(.
They couldn’t believe I spent that much money on a dress. My parents are from a foreign country and they value money greatly so I can understand where they are coming from.
They asked my why I didn’t consider a replica. They kept saying I could get it for $300-$400.
I am having my wedding ceremony and reception at their house and we are having only 30 guests. It’s going to be such a small wedding so paying that much for the dress is not cool.
I, myself, feel a bit stupid because I bought the dress on my FIRST visit to the store. The sale rep wanted to make the sale and told me if I don’t order it that very day, I will not get it until the day before my wedding! (my wedding is in June).
With such a sense of urgency, I ordered it (paid my deposit and everything).
a week later, I got an email that Priscilla of Boston is having their sample sales and I am thinking ‘omg, what if there’s a sample of my dress? I could have saved 75%!! I am so mad!”
I know an amazing lady who can do my wedding dress alteration at a fraction of the price Priscilla is charging ($500!). So alteration is not my concern at this point.
I put my dress on sale here and at other websites, hoping to make a reasonable amount of money back after my wedding so my parents will be happier.
I care deeply about my parents and I know they are right about me maxing out my credit card for one dress is a bad decision.
I hope I will find peace with this dress before my wedding. Right now, the situation makes me so emotional :'(.
By the way, my dress is on sale here, if you are interested. I will be willing to give you a good price.
The dress itself is amazingly georgous.
If you wedding is before mine, you can also have the dress first, and give it back to me for my wedding.
