- Wedding: March 2016
I’m planning on finalizing my date/venue for my Spring 2016 wedding within the next month or so, and my next task will be finding a dress. I’m hoping to spend around $700 for my dress (not including alterations which I’m expecting to be pretty pricey considering my body type) but it seems like even the cheaper dresses that I’m interested in start around $1,200. I’m okay with buying used, but the thought of having my first bridal shopping experience in a run-down consignment shop with unfelpful staff and sifting through hundreds of dresses really doesn’t do it for me. I know myself, and I tend to get very easily overwhelmed in these situations which leads to me losing hope and giving up before really trying (this is why I can’t go to Ross anymore). On the other hand, I don’t want to go to a nice boutique with the intention of just trying on dresses in case I end up falling in love with one way out of my price range. It seems like going straight into online shopping without first being fitted and getting an idea of how I look in different styles would also be a bad idea. Does anyone have any tips on how I can go about shopping for a budget dress without feeling overwhelmed or disappointed with the experience?
