Etiquette help please!
About 3 years ago I broke off my engagement to my highschool sweetheart. We were well into wedding planning, no I didn’t leave him at the alter, so I had purchased a dress, and some DIY reception/ceremony deco. Just when I had given up on love or ever getting married again, I met my now fiance!!!!
The dilemma is, what are the rules regarding using any of the deco/ideas i had previously purchased for the “wedding that never was”? The DIY supplies aren’t really important to me and I will probably end up not using much of them. However, my wedding dress is my DREAM dress, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Also, it’s high end and cost me a pretty penny. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with a financially well off husband to be, so there’s really no wedding budget. Do I go out and buy the exact same dress I have hanging in storage, or do I use the one I already own?
My fiance said whatever I deide is fine with him, and that our wedding day is going to be about our marriage and starting a life together, not the minute wedding day details of the dress, reception, catering, etc….
But, Im an over-analyzer and would love to hear your opinions, or if anyone has been in this predicament before?
