- Wedding: April 2012
You bee’s have been so wonderful putting up with me when I ask you dress questions. Thank you. If you can stand one more your help would really be appriciated.
When I first went became engaged I went dress shopping right away and bought a $400 dress just because it fit, was cheap and my friends liked it.
Well, I cried for 2 days because I knew it was not “the one”. I decided to take the loss and go looking again.
I found a Maggie dress. Primavera and loved the bottom but wasn’t completley sure about the top. The sales lady assured me that whatever alterations I wanted could be done beautifully. So I caved again and put $300 down on the sample that is a size or two to small but figured I could lose the weight in time.
I have never felt 100% about the Maggie. I hadn’t picked my theme yet and I keept thinking if the dress need so many things added/taken away from it is it really my dress?
I decided on a theme(shabby chic/country ) In a big backyard with 250 guests and realized this dress was all wrong.
I went searching again and foud “THE ONE” for sure this time. Watters Devenport. I went to put the 50% down and found out the dress was double my budget!!! I had told then $1200 and the dress is $2400!!! Needless to say I walked out empty handed and very sad.
I have scoured preowned dress sites and classifieds to no avail.
The place where I have money down said they could apply the money I have down towards another dress at their store but They can’t get the Devenport because they don’t carry Watters. They had me try on other dresses but none even come close.
My question to you bee’s is this.
Woul you keep the Primavera and get alterations done to try and make it what you like or find a way to buy the Devenport?
The thing is were are very tight on money for this wedding as it is.
I sometimes feel like it’s only one day and my FI would love me in a white potato sack I should just stick with the Primavera.
Which would you choose?
Dress 1 Primavera
or Dress 2 Devenport
*sigh* Every thing I wanted in a dress is in the second one. Scalloped sweetheart neckline, a line, lace and organza, flowy, light. (i would wear a different belt)
I looked and looked and had pictures of this and similar dresses. No one had anything remotely close for me to try on or even see except the place that had the Devenpert.
I should just stop all this. Right? Suck it up and keep the Primavera. It’s pretty enough. Right?
