This is kind of a weird request. In Washington, DC every year, there is a Cherry Blossom Festival in April. I am representing my state as its Cherry Blossom Princess and need a long, white, formal gown for one of the nights of the festival. However, there are a number of other wardrobe requirements and I can’t justify spending hundreds of dollars on a dress I’ll wear just for this, while saving up money for my wedding. Also, I don’t want to wear my wedding dress for this event and then wear again about a year later.
Does anyone have any ideas where to look? I would like to spend no more than $200 on this, as I’ll probably need to get it altered, and cut off the train. Any DC area brides who can reccomend thrift stores in the DC metro area? Any other resources? Thanks!
