Can I ask your advice? I have a perfectly beautiful wedding dress that my future mother in law purchased for me (for a separate engagement event in Turkey). It is lovely, but not really my style. Everyone tells me that it looks beautiful on me, and I feel very pretty in it. It would certainly save a lot of money if I used this dress for my wedding. But…I can’t help shake the feeling that I should be picking out my own wedding dress, and it should be in a style that suits me down to the ground. The financial reality is that yes, it would be great to save the money I would spend on a second dress for our honeymoon, but it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to afford the second one. In short, it’s doable for a budget friendly dress.
What is your opinion? Would you stick with the original dress or get “your own”? I keep thinking that it’s one day out of my life, and am just weighing how much money I’d be spending to wear the dress for a few hours…
Thank you in advance for your thoughts!
