- Wedding: October 2012
I walked into my local goodwill today and they had recently had a wedding gown store donate a ton of samples in ALL SIZES. From like 2 to 28!! Most of them were Jonathan Alexander. All beautiful. All just needed a new dry cleaning.
And here is the unbelievable part:
THEY WERE ALL FIFTY DOLLARS!!!
I found a dress I loved and it happened to be my size. And I can’t tell you how much I almost bought it. If I was getting married in the near future I would have. But, I have a little less than 25lbs to lose before now and October of 2012 and I made a quick call to a tailor. I would need it shortened, taken in and a couple of buttons redone. Estimate? Nearly 150. If it was THE dress it still would have been worth it. But I’m not willing to spend a total of 200 on and almost when one of the dresses making the final cut is 300 from David’s Bridal.
But still. FIFTY DOLLAR Perfect wedding dresses?? I can’t believe it!!!
