At first weddding I shouldnt have had at 18, I found it in a bridal magazine and had bridal store get it for me. Bought it and sold it after wedding for only 1/4 of the price.
This wedding we got married at a little castle bc of our fairytale romance so we rented a renassaince style princess gown and also prince outfit for us from professional costume shop for the weekend and returned when we were done they were perfect for us and soooo affordable too
I've been married twice. My 1st dress came from a small local bridal boutique. That dress was aweful! My mom told me if she was paying for the wedding, then she was picking the dress. I looked like Little Bo Peep.
I bought my 2nd dress at a thrift store. It wasn't really a wedding dress, but I didn't have a traditional wedding and I loved it.
