Frugal Wedding Finery
Just wanted to pass along what happened to me this week end. My stepson was getting married and I found a $25.00 floor length gown at a thrift store. It was lovely and in style and fit perfectly. Unfortunately, before the wedding I found out it was too formal. I ended up wearing a classic dress I had purchased for a cocktail party 10 years ago:) and it was perfect! The mother of the bride, normally a frugal woman, bought a very expensive dress for the event. As she got ready the zipper broke and they had to almost cut her out of the dress and hour before the ceremony. She too ended up going back to her closet for a suitable dress.
My hubby used a 15 year old tux and the groom borrowed his younger brothers suit. I don't have the pictures yet but if I can figure out how to load them after I get them I will.
All in all a great day at a great savings and no one knew any differently.
