Excuse Me? Is Your Wedding Dress for Sale?
I loved my wedding dress so much more than I ever knew that I would. When I bought it, I liked the fact that the material wasn't too heavy since I was getting married on the beach and I have a tendency to pass out from overheating. I also loved that it was fit and flair and the bottom was sassy, like me. I didn't like the detachable strap and I was definitely having a beaded sash added to my waist. That's what I thought. So then my dress arrives at the bridal gown shop and I try it on and change my mind. The dress was really made for me -- it didn't require any alterations (with the exception of some thick chest pads) and fit me beautifully. I then decided that I loved the shoulder strap and no longer wanted a sash for my waist. Go figure. I loved my dress, and I can't believe how much everyone else loved it, too! I was overwhelmed with the plethora of compliments on my dress, and I was super surprised to find out that just the other day, one of my sister's friends asked if I am interested in selling my dress. She is having a destination wedding, as well, and has not found a dress that she loves yet, except for my dress. I'm flattered, but I don't really want to sell my dress. But on the other hand, what the hell am I going to do with it? My mom found her mother's wedding dress in her basement in the middle of my wedding planning -- and besides the fact that its size 0, it's not really my style. So back in the basement it went and still sits. Should I let my dress join my grandmother's dress and sit in the basement, or sell it so that this other bride-to-be can enjoy it on her big day, and I can make a little money -- actually, I'd probably give it back to my mom, but she wouldn't take it. I think I'm going to let this chick try the dress on this weekend. Maybe she won't even like it on and then I don't have to worry about it.
