Where to Buy Wedding Dress Undergarments
One of the bajillion websites I oh-so-freely gave my email address to when I first got engaged was Project Wedding (and WeddingWire and The Knot and David’s Bridal, blahblahblah). So, ever since “365 Days Until the Big Day,” I’ve been getting their titled-as-such daily emails—99% of which never applied to me, in large part because I already did them or they just weren’t in my realm of thought. The earlier emails talked a lot about things like Wedding Boot Camp (aw hell no) and Top Wedding Tunes (none of the songs were really my cup of tea) and Unique Ideas for Your Engagement Party (which would have been helpful if we’d had an engagement party). Into the trash they went.
I can’t knock it too much, though, because lately? Lately it’s been lots of helpful and interesting things, like: Get Your Marriage License (check!), Do a Vendor Check In (check!), Top 10 80s Songs (because the ’80s were the best, obvi), Create Your Own Ceremony Programs (check!), Changing Your Name – Here’s What to Expect (don’t even want to think about it), and—ready for it?—Don’t Forget Your Dress!
Alas, surprisingly enough, this isn’t actually a post about Project Wedding and all of its email goodness. This is a post about the latter subject—the dress. The article mentioned above talks a lot about making sure you get your alterations done, bringing things to the wedding in case your dress needs an emergency fix of some kind, and remembering to accessorize, including purchasing your wedding dress undergarments. All of this is well and good, but I just thought it was extra awesome and appropriate at this moment in time because of what I just picked up the other day.
Oh, hello there!
Now, I’ve technically had my dress in my possession since last October, since it was cheaper to have it shipped to Maryland from New York and get alterations done down here than it was to purchase and have alterations done up there. Blame it on lovely New York state taxes and up-charges.
