- Wedding: November 2011
So, I am a two dress bride and ended up buying the dress I’m going to wear for the wedding at a used wedding dress site, for $500… $550 including shipping. It is gorgeous, but it is being altered down to a size 0 and has a couple stains on the inside. Considering how hard of a time I’m having selling my old dress (an unaltered unworn size 0 Watters), I wonder if I will even be able to sell my current Watters after the wedding, having been worn twice before at that point:
FI and I are going to Secrets Maroma Beach for our honeymoon… I’ve seen pictures that couples have had done by the resort photographer before for $200 or less (including 10 or so prints), and they are GORGEOUS. We are also not having a professional photographer for our wedding, we are having friend who is a photographer do the photos. I’m worried our wedding photos won’t be that awesome as he has never done a wedding before. Do we throw away the $300 we might get back selling the dress, plus the $200 for the photo sesh, or call it a loss and just go with professional TTD photos for our honeymoon since we’re only spending $500 on non professional photos for the wedding day?
The frugal part of me is saying “count on the $300 selling the dress/save the $200 on the photog session”, and the other part of me is saying $500 was already spent, so get some great photos in a beautiful location.
