@mudratdetector You should stop sharing details about your dress purchase with non-supportive family or friends. Who needs that? Where you buy and how much you pay for your dress is YOUR business.
Thank goodness these days we have so many resources to buy dresses –whether its at traditional bridal salon, online from other brides or thru a consignment shop.
I think I’m a Maggie bride (I haven’t gone shopping yet for dress, I’ve just been browsing online) The styles that I’ve liked of her dresses range from $500+ up to $1,500. I don’t only put value into the bridal store experience. I’m always checking out Nordstrams (they have amazing dress well under $400) preowned wedding dresses and other avenues. And if it saves me money in the process that’s even better!
Sites like this have made me realize that its not having a brand new dress or spending XYZ that makes the dress special. Ultimately its the woman wearing it that brings the dress to life, so cut yourself some slack. Simply find a dress that reflects your personality, style, which is flattering to your figure at a price point that you can afford.
