- Wedding: December 1969
I was newly engaged and had been to only one gown appointment when I went to the Kleinfeld’s sample sale last Wednesday. The whole event was pretty stressful – waited in line for 2 hours before being set loose to scavenger "the" dress. I tried on my first dress and felt like a million dollars. It was voluptuous, dramatic, couture, and half the original price. It was also completely different from the type of dress I intended on getting. After the high wore off, I returned home and started having major second thoughts. It’s a beautiful dress, but fit more for a grand affair, not my small, outdoor event. And even though I got a great deal, I still spent more than I was expecting too, not to mention the cleaning and alternation fees I still have to front. So I’m not sure what to do? It’s a sample dress so I need to get it altered anyway, do I scale the dress down? Do I try to sell it and buy the more appropriate dress? There are so many styles to choose from!
Anyone else purchased a wedding dress on an impulse? Or had second thoughts on wedding dresses at all? Anyone tried to do major structural alterations to a dress? Anyone tried to sell their dress?
