@SouthernGirl: Do you have a picture? Or have you posted it already? Sorry if you have, I must go back and look through your threads..

Sorry you feel this way though! I hate for you to be unhappy about something that should make you feel so special.

Have you thought about posting it on the bee classifieds? The post office could help direct you in the way to ship it…

@SouthernGirl: Would you mind posting a picture? You don’t have to have it on if you don’t want.. Just to get an idea.

Let’s see her! And maybe we can figure something out.

@SouthernGirl: So is it the simplicity that bothers you? Because I actually really like it! I honestly don’t think you would have any problem selling it. Ebay will walk you through the steps for selling, it’s very easy. And you can also list it on a pre-owned wedding dress site, and like I said the bee as well.

I hate that you don’t love it. Every woman deserves to love her dress. I also hate that your friend made you feel pressured. That wasn’t very kind of her.

I feel like if it was jazzed up with a bright sash and some sparkling jewelry (and steam pressed) it would look wonderful!

I think its pretty!  I think you could probably get some tulle flowers or a sparkly brooch to pin at the corner of the ruching.  A really simple dress means you can REALLY get all sorts of fun accessories.  If you don’t think your mom is going to pay for the dress, why dont you get her to buy you shoes or a veil or other accessories?  

But if you absolutely hate it, David’s Bridal is having their $99 dress sale now.  Maybe you can pick something up and cut back on other areas of your wedding?  

Good luck, you’ll look beautiful either way.

Go to the stores and see what you can find, thre absolutely best deal.   I once found a silk dipioni gown for $50, it was beautiful!! 

Try classifieds, see if someone in your area is trying to sell a dress for really cheap.  

Good luck!

In all honesty, I don’t really like it… but I just like a lot of details & sparkles.  The important thing is whether or not YOU like it.. and right now, it doesn’t seem like you do.  You deserve to love the dress that you get married in.  You should consider listing it in the classifieds on the bee.  I’m sure you’d be able to get at least $150 or so out of it.. especially if you throw in the veil.  Like someone else said, DB is having their $99 sale, so if you can sell this one, you’d be able to get the experience of trying on different dresses & getting one that you really love.  You could try to sell it on preownedweddingdresses.com.  I’m not sure exactly how difficult their process is though.  eBay is really easy though… they pretty much walk you through the whole thing.

@KatyElle: agreed! And maybe add some beading on the bodice. It’s a pretty dress! But if you don’t love it, nothing we will say will help you. You’ve gotta love it, too!
