Hey all!

I know it has been a while...working 60 hours a week makes me very tired and all I do is sleep!

Anyway, I thought since this wedding is going to be as non-traditional as possible, I would go that route for procuring my dress. There are a lot of dresses out there, ones already worn in a wedding, ones that future brides decided against wearing and the ones (gasp!) that were never worn and will never be because the wedding was cancelled (these frighten me...). So I went on www.PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com to see if I could find any. None of them were around me and I wanted to try on the gown first, or I wasn't going to buy it...only makes sense. I also did contact a couple people but they never got back to me. Then I thought about craigslist. I went on there and there are hundreds of wedding dresses in my area, waiting to be bought! I'm in contact with six people about purchasing their dress.

I went to see one last night but I didn't really like it. The girl bought the dress and then decided she wanted a different style so she is now selling it on craigslist so she can buy a new one. We forgot to take a picture though. It didn't really fit and she didn't feel comfortable zipping it all the way up...lol

Then I just tried one on, which I was able to get a picture or two of. The woman selling it was so nice. I guess she just decided she didn't want to be married. Or at least that is what she said. So she put it on craigslist and has been trying to sell it for 5 months. It is a beautiful dress and she was so sweet. She had a custom made veil that she brought for me to try on too, it was gorgeous. She had also bought all the bridesmaid dresses and everything and they are all sitting in her closet. Very sad. Onto a better note, here are some pictures of me in the dress!!!

Here is just the dress (don't mind my messy living room)

And here is the dress and the veil (the veil goes all the way to the floor)

What do you think?

I'm going to try on another dress this evening, I'll be sure to tell you guys all about my experience dress shopping on craigslist!
