- Wedding: November 2008
So, I already bought my wedding dress. Its a Melissa Sweet Valentina. I bought it at only the 2nd store I visited and I went with my parent’s in my grandmother because my bridesmaids couldn’t come. It was a Melissa Sweet Trunk show so I felt pressured to buy because everyone was saying how beautiful I looked in it and because of the discount. So I bought it for $ 4000, well with in my price range.
Afterwards, I was feeling complete remorse because I didn’t have my Maid/Matron of Honor with me or my friends. So, I decided to keep my wedding dress a secret and continued to shop "just for fun." What a bad idea that was.
I fell in love with the Ines Di Santo Susanna dress with the detachable rosette train and jewled belt which costs a total of $8000. Totally out of my price range, but I love it.
The Melissa Sweet dress in unreturnable and all sales are final. But now I’m stuck with the feeling that I’m not going to wear my dream dress down the aisle.
My Maid/Matron of Honor says that its my day and if it means having 2 dresses that cost a total of $ 15,000 with alteration, shoes, and veil, then so be it. But it almost seems ridiculuous to spend that kinda of money on a dress you wear fro 6 hours.
Any advice? What should I do?
Thanks in advance.
