oh goodness another 2 dress bride
Enter preownedweddingdresses.com. I've been randomly trolling the used/sample dress resale sites for a long time, hoping hoping hoping I would see one of the 2 dresses that made me swoon in the beginning. The Jim Hjelm one is often up for sale, almost never deeply discounted because honestly, they don't have to. It's gorgeous and popular. The Sarah Danielle dress is not so common, I almost never see it for sale used or in a sample sale. Until last week! I did another google search for "sarah danielle sample sale" and up popped a new preownedweddingdresses listing - it was the dress. it was $400. and it was close enough to my size that alterations would be easy. The girl says she bought it as a sample but ended up wearing a different dress for her wedding so this one has never been worn or altered, and it has absolutely nothing wrong with it.
I just paid for it via escrow.com (recommended over paypal by all the wedding dress resale sites) and it should be on its way to me tomorrowwwwwww!
I would post pictures here except Mr. Fairfax follows this blog - but here's a link to it (mr. fairfax verboten!!). weeeeee!
Any other 2-dress brides? Anyone else have a dress they're not crazy about? My advice is to keep looking. I was gonna be fine with wearing the dress I bought - it really is quite pretty - but now that I'm getting this one.... Now I get what all the fuss is about.
