- Wedding: May 2009
I had to, had to, had to share with y’all.
A bridal shop in my town went out of business, and the owner was spreading the word via seamstresses and other bridal shops, etc that she still had about 40 gowns in varying sizes, from Pronovios, Melissa Sweet, Casablanca, etc.
So I called her, just to see what she was about. Turns out she closed her doors in ’06, and is now, thanks to the current economy, in some pretty substantial financial problems. The woman isn’t computer savvy and didn’t know anything about craqigslist, ebay, or any of our frequented sites (I mentioned the hive, preowneddresses.com and oncewed.com)
Anyway, I looked through her collection of dresses, and…voila! She had one dress, a dress that I would have glanced over as something that wasn’t…enough of something. But once I put it on, it was absolutely the one. It was light, flowy, gorgeous. it WASN’T strapless (a big no-no for me)
The best part….
In exchange for helping her get her other inventory sold via the web, $95 just paid for my beautimous Casablanca gown. Did I mention that she’s also throwing in my veil??
I just couldn’t contain myself!! I didn’t know stuff like this actually happened!
