- Wedding: November 2012
Hi bees! I’m planning a private wedding in Italy in November (I say private because it’s only my fiancee and I but not elopement because everyone knows). We are technically going to be legally married in the US then head on our honeymoon but during it, we have arranged for a fabulous photographer to do a long photo session all around Rome and also a symbolic ceremony.
In light of our expensive honeymoon and because I’m frugal at heart, I refuse to spend thousands of dollars on a dress that I’ll wear for 8 hours max. Also, I’m not concerned with minute details about the wedding except that I want amazing photos.
The debate is this, I tried on some dress here and saw a trend with the ones at the chain bridal salons…they are all made overseas. Having family living in China led me to start investigating ordering a custom made dress from there. I have found several sites and narrowed it down to one site and one dress. There are several vendors who will make this dress but i’m really nervous that I will be upset with myself if it turns out to look different than the photos or be awful quality. I do not expect designer quality for the price but I want it to show well in photos.
Who has done this and what are your thoughts?
Here she is…
