- Wedding: April 2012
I got a text from my mom at 730am on a saturday… lovely I know, saying that I should get a different dress. My mom actually picked out my original dress and I could afford it at the time but couldn’t justify the price so I ordered a replica online. The replica is pretty similar just needs crinoline and some details fixed in the back. My mom said flat out that it would be a pain in the behind to get it altered and offered to pay half for a new dress. I am frusterated that they didn’t offer to pay half from the beginning so if I choose to get another dress I am out $400 plus what I spend on the new dress. I take a lot of pride in being under budget on our wedding so far and so does Fiance and Future Mother-In-Law. Both my parents said they loved the dress when I showed them the replica in person and now three months later I get this. I lost my job and am going to school full time right now. I seriously don’t know what to do at this point.
