Whew! We have the dress situation under control! I decided the Superstore didn’t deserve another dime of my money, so I forfeited my deposit and used the remaining money for an awesome dress @ My Enchanted Wedding Shop in Greenfield.
BRIDES: Check out all the small bridal shops in towns outside of Indy — they have custom dresses for more than 1/2 the price of David’s Bridal and the Superstore! Seriously, I was AMAZED!
So I bought the perfect “Vegas” dress, after falling in love with about 6 others. There were 2 that I really liked more than the Vegas dress, but they were both “church” dresses. Much too big for traveling to Vegas. One was all lace (listen for my mother’s shocked gasp!) and I love love love love it…. but it’s much more appropriate for a big church wedding, which is not at all what we’re having!
My dress is now off for alterations at The Perfect Stitch in Wanamker, another place where I found a wonderful dress on consignment… but again, it was too poofy for the plane ride to Vegas.
All in all, I’m quite pleased with my decision. I’m sad that I don’t get to have my original dress, but I found so many others that are BETTER and CHEAPER that it was hardly a difficult choice.
