- Wedding: June 2013
Bees… I’m gonna have an aneurysm before this is over. Long story short, impulse bought a lovely Maggie Sottero Allyssa. Pretty dress, great price. Planned Destination Wedding to get married in June in GA, on the beach. There is no formal reception on Tybee/Savannah. We will all go out to eat/drink/party though. We will be having a reception back home the following weekend. Fell in LOVE with the Maggie Sottero Miri for a beach wedding. Listed the Allyssa (hasn’t sold) and bouget Miri off Tradesy for a great price. I try her on with my girls and on Bridesmaid or Best Man points out how lovely it is and if I want to wear it for the at-home reception, I should probably get ANOTHER dress to wear out the night of the wedding so my Miri is clean/undamaged for the reception.
My dilemma..my girls will all still be dressed in their BM’s dresses. I don’t want to go out on my wedding night as the Bride without looking like the Bride but I can’t buy another pricey wedding dress. The Allyssa has not been altered and since I’m selling it, I’d prefer to keep it that way. But I don’t wanna wear just some white cocktail dress either. DB had nothing that was affordable ($100) that was clearly a wedding dress. I don’t want to go home on our wedding night to slip out of a white cocktail dress for my husband. Should I just wear my dress and hope everything goes ok? Or should I get another dress….? UGGH
