I just won MY dress (David’s Bridal ct2406), new and never worn, also comes with veil (new), hair comb (new), a-line slip (new), and a bra (not my size but new)…
For $106 including shipping!! The exact same dress I was trying on a couple days ago and prepared to buy at DB for $599 plus tax, and that would be the dress only!!
And even better, I will most likely re-sell the veil (just not my taste) and bra on ebay and that will basically cover what I spent on the dress because it is a new veil and pretty popular according to my research! Typically sells for around $80, just the veil. I think it was just overlooked / passed over this time since in this case it was in a “lot” of items!
So in the end if I sell the extra stuff I don’t want, I will actually MAKE about $5 after it’s all over!!!
I really cannot believe how lucky we’ve been so far in ALL our wedding planning with things just “falling into place” like this, but this just tops all!
I stayed up half the night watching the auction and then worried to death until it was over, and then I was actually afraid of posting here about it for fear I’d somehow “jinx” it even though I’ve already won it. Silly I know. I couldn’t stand it anymore and just HAD to share with y’all!!! My SIL was on the phone with me as it ended, counting down with me, like New Year’s Eve but WAY better!
Oh, and it is such a relief to have this DONE! Now I can start back on the mundane crap I’ve been ignoring during all this dress search and hunt stuff… like buying textbooks for school and school clothes for the kids and so forth. I still have a ton of wedding stuff to do but this was a big stressor and now it’s done!

No pics of me in it (yet) but here is the stock pic:
And the dress I just won is identical, never worn, and the crinoline/slip is the same exact one I tried on in david’s bridal with the dress and still has tags on it!!
As soon as I get it I will try and get some pics with my son’s camera phone. My phone is currently crap. 😉
Thanks for the congrats, everyone! I can’t get over it! We had about $800 budgeted for my dress (total) and $150 for FI’s clothes (total) and now we’ve spent $30 on FI’s outfit (total) and now this!!! That’s enough for an entire extra plane ticket for someone who might otherwise not make it to our wedding! Or, a new tattoo for me! Bad bad, I know.
Here’s the veil (I will sell):
and slip (will probably keep):
Bra (not my size, will sell):
comb, probably will sell too but can’t find a pic of it exactly, looks a lot like this one:

Got my dress on ebay, too! I’m pretty surprised that the dresses go for so low ($55 including shipping for mine). I think most brides want to to make sure the dress has only been hers, or really want the experience of buying thier dress with thier mom/MOH. Mine was a sample sale from a TN bridal shop.
