Dress chat- choosing the budget for your dress
I wanted to empty my brain of dress thoughts as I don't want to bore my FI any more!
I've got a long time until my wedding (May 2018) and I have tried a couple of dresses just to get an idea of styles and the cost of the dress I'd like.
There were a few that I love and I've just seen that one of them has had almost £1000 knocked off and is now only £450.
Which got me thinking...is it really worth spending ALL that money on a dress that is going to be worn for one day and then left in a wardrobe somewhere? Now that I know the pattern of when dresses go on sale (the one that has just been reduced I tried on in January and is now on sale in December) I'm wondering whether I should try on this coming January and then hope that the same pattern applies and I can pick up a bargain next December.
What are everyone's thought of the cost of THE dress? Splash out as it's a one time only thing, save because it's only going to be worn once?
I'm yet to decide what to do but this huge reduction has made me think I could shop a lot more savvily- the savings made here would cover my flowers or 20 guests...
