- Wedding: October 2012
I am new to the Bee’s and new to posting, but I have so enjoyed reading about everyone’s journeys here!
So…after months of agonizing over TWO wedding dress purchases, I have done the unthinkable and purchased a THIRD dress. Here is the first dress, an Olivia Collection Sample.
I impulsively bought this dress my first time out of the gate shopping. I loved the classic style of this dress, but it was a sample dress that was WAAAAAY too big, and the color of the attached sash (a pewter/lilac) was throwing off my color scheme. I loved this dress, but bottom line — it wasn’t MY dress. I agonized 2 months before heading shopping AGAIN.
Second dress was one of those – I was IN LOVE on the hanger. I eyed this dress for MONTHS before buying it. I adored the Champagne Color, and most of the all, the pricetag ($499 brand new!) But after loving in the salon, buying and waiting for it to come in….it somehow didn’t look good on me. I felt frumpy and too old-fashioned.
So after another couple of months of agonizing over THAT dress, I FINALLY got up the nerve to go out BY MYSELF and find the dress of my dreams. I didn’t have any other opinions clouding my head, and I went with my gut. And I am SOOOOOOOOO glad I did. I cannot WAIT for my dress to come in and wear it down the aisle! I’m an official WINNIE COUTURE bride now, with my dream dress and a DETACHABLE train – how cool is that????
So now I have TWO dresses to resell. What’s the best site for that? Ebay? Craigslist? Here? Any suggestions would be great! 🙂
