Dress Shopping on a budget

     I have what I thought would be a AMAZING dress budget! Well that was until I started dress shopping. I never thought that so many dresses were thousands of dollars. And of course I love looking at those dresses and falling in love with them even though they are so far out of budget.
    There is some amazing and affordable dresses at Davids bridal and Alfred Angelo. And yes I have been to Davids bridal and tried on dresses before But I have not been able to go to Alfred Angelo yet But it is on my list of stores to go to!
    But I am pretty sure I am going to fall in love with a dress that is so far out of budget I couldn't make it work even if I wanted to Like this Martina Liana style number 260.
   But luckily I know if I find a dress that I could not imagine wearing anything else for the wedding I could always find it used on a pre-owned wedding dress site. Here is a list of a few I found with a  quick google search

    And I'm sure that those are not the only ones. But it is a good start! So when I am trying on wedding dresses when I am asked what my wedding dress budget is I might fib a little bit... Because if I find a dress that I am in love with I can just search the preowned wedding dress sites until I find the dress I need! Plus when buying Preowned you don't have a 6 month wait, 9 times out of 10 they already have a bustle and one of the best reasons would be the price difference! You only wear your wedding dress for a few hours anyways right?

    Bridesmaids Dresses

    From TheKnot.com
        I love the look of mismatched bridesmaids dresses. Not only do I like the look of it I also like how easy it is. All you have to do is say Get a Pink bridesmaids dress. Easy as that! No one mad because they don't look good in the dress. Or complaining the dress is out of budget. They get to choose their own dress! You can pull the look together by matching jewelry or shoes. And that would make a great bridesmaids gift! Sounds perfect doesn't it...
        But "Huston we have problem" I am not the only one planning this wedding. Juan has a say in the wedding too. And if you cant already tell what I am about to say Ill just put it out for you. Juan says "NO MISMATCHED BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES"
        I almost feel like saying you don't like my idea then you pick a dress that looks good on all 5 bridesmaids, For around 100 dollars that I can just veto your idea if I don't like the dress. But luckily I found a dress that all of the bridesmaids agree on. For under 100 dollars AND Juan and I have come to a decision. All of the girls will wear the same dress but just in different colors. So instead of the picture already posted I will have something like this.
         So what is this magic bridesmaids dress that will look good on 5 different bridesmaids you ask. Well It is from David's Bridal It is the Cotton Sateen Strapless dress with Ruching And it Even has pockets! It is Style # 83312. It looks great on everyone. It is under 100 dollars and I in a a round about way still get my mismatched bridesmaids!
        Now I still have to find a dress for me... I should really get on that...
