In a few months, we will be celebrating our fourteenth wedding anniversary. Oh how time flies! In the blink of an eye, as though it was only yesterday, when we went through the arduous task of preparing for the wedding. That was some experience! A mixture of emotions floor me when I look back.
There’s been so many changes, many loved ones are gone, but here we are still going strong. I can’t help but think about the most important article on our wedding day aside from the wedding rings – that’s none other than my wedding gown. All I wanted was a custom made piece that’s timeless and elegant which was executed very well but drained the wedding budget. I hate to admit it but it’s the truth and looking back now, I think I went overboard.
I have no regrets with my choice but if I have to do it all over again, I wouldn’t hesitate to look into those ready to wear wedding dresses that are not only made well and priced well. Nowadays, practicality is a top priority.
Should a renewal of vows be in the offing a few years down the road, I think I’d be much more equipped to know what’s practical and what’s not. Nowadays, we just need to be resourceful and use everything at our disposal to get the best value for our money. Outfitting the whole bridal entourage with wedding dresses that are tastefully designed and affordably priced is no longer impossible. With online sources and with the click of a mouse it is indeed doable.
