There is no such thing as out of date when it comes to weddings!!!  A wedding is an old tradition and it should be WHATEVER you want.

I don’t care what anyone says, I am copying this picture. It is a great picture and it captures the essense of what I’ve always wanted in a wedding dress. It is very classic AND classy.

Relax and keep looking.  You still have a little time.  You’ll either find something that you feel better about budget-wise or stick with the current fav (which you can’t go wrong with).  There are tons of options out there–preowned, bravo, powerbride.  Somewhere on this website is a whole post about it–the blogger’s name is Miss HotCocoa or something like that.  Gowns haven’t changed that much over the past 5 or 6 years, so if you pick a pretty classic style, you’ll be OK.

I don’t think that dress is dated at all! I LOVE buttons and high lace backs — I even got a bolero for that very purpose. That dress is lovely. As you probably saw in my thread, I have had a really hard time with the dress process. I am still very nervous about it all because I was torn on a big full ball gown with bolero or a slim lace dress. But I wanted to be classic in a Grace Kelly/Jacki-O way, and even if it is 100 degrees at my wedding, I’ll be in a satin ballgown. For better or worse haha! Here are some of my inspiration pics that may help you feel better about your dress, which I think it gorgeous, by the way!

@MsInterpret:  I can definitely relate!  The first time I was married was in 1977, at which time strapless dresses were considered a bit “tarty.”  Even though my wedding was in June, I wore a dress that went up to my neck and down to my wrists.

This time around, our wedding was in October in Massachusetts.  So I think that will be no problem; I’ll just get another long-sleeved wedding dress.  Umm… right.  All of the bridal salons acted as if I was looking for a wedding dress made out of animal pelts or something.

I ended up finding a strapless dress I liked. 

But NotFroofy, who is more amply endowed, was definitely not going for a strapless dress.  She finally found a dress that was a few years old, that had nice functional straps.

I suspect that your guests will love your dress, regardless of whether it is “new” or a few years out of date.  I think only brides who are planning their own weddings are really up on what is this year’s fashion and what is not.  So, just find something that you feel gorgeous in, and they will think you are gorgeous, too.

In wedding dress land, not horrible… but still a lot for me and for our overall budget.  I can afford it, but I am so thrifty by nature I feel I MUST at least try to see what’s out there pre-owned”

 

I SO get that! I could probably manage a lot higher than my budget, but it’s like my genes are screaming at me all the time ‘just hunt a little further, you can find it for a bargain!’
