Those would be the words I like to refer to when describing our wedding. I am a bargain shopper at heart. The thought of even $10,000 on our wedding still gets to me from time to time. I’m happy to report, with six month left we are still on track to be under budget.
To give you an idea, we are getting married in early October at my parents house. While the fiancee are outdoors type people…hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, etc. We added a touch of “us” and our personality to the wedding. Thus….
While I was hoping to have brown bridesmaid dresses, it was impossible to find a shade that matched and didn’t look like the color of baby dootie….We just finalized the decision on the bridesmaids dresses. Originally the girls picked this dress in palomino (color shown)
But, as I was shopping for bargains (it’s second nature) online I found this one, which is a bit cheaper, slightly more elegant, and less fru-fru-ish. Not to say I didn’t like the other one I DID, but I think I like this one fits our wedding better. It’s still the same color: Palomino- which is almost a tan/brushed gold color.
Thanks to lovely websites like Netbride.com, either dress can be acquired for less that $125 (including Shipping and Handling, there is no sales tax). Much better than the $145 +s&h, tax quoted by bridal shops.
Update: Many of you have request the designer and style number- both dresses are After Six. The second picture is After Six: style 6504 Tea-length Matte Satin v-neck dress with empire waist and Chiffon draped sash with bow detail at front side. (Sizes available 0-28, and 0-28 Extra Length.) It seems as though the first picture style has been discontinued (I believe the style number was 6503? )The closest I can find to that style is After Six Style: 6280- but it’s not available in Palamino color, cameo or iced gold would be the next closest thing.
