I am strictly budgeting my wedding, as a sort of boycott to the extravagance of American weddings.
I am having a hell of a time finding a wedding dress that’s under $700 and that is ACTUALLY a style I want. At this point I am just being picky.
However, I had found “the one” that was about $500 and gorgeous. It was going to be perfect. The company in Ukraine even made it custom to my measurements!
THEN…the dressmaker over DOUBLED the price of the dress
SOOO I will not be ordering that dress
I have also been searching other places for “the dress” but I can’t stand the overpriced and gross polyester nightmares that David’s Bridal sells.
I have looked all over etsy and nothing compares….or I don’t like the neckline
I haven’t seen anything on other websites that blows me away and I want something made from a fabric I can STAND to wear for 9 hours and not sweat all over and feel gross on my wedding day.
Short and curvy I look terrible in strapless
I want something romantic without being terrible and poofy
I don’t look good in anything without upper support for my large twins….
at this point maybe it would be easier to just make something…..
oh yeah, I do that….
I can sew. I sew pretty well.
I also have been dreaming of making a Chemise A La Reine (18th century style gown)
so….that’s what I’ll be doing.
I just ordered my fabric for $32
Meaning I may make my wedding dress for less than $50….I call it a win
