I just bought a second wedding dress – and it only cost 99$

I just bought a second wedding dress. Yup, I’ve officially become one of those brides. Who needs two wedding dresses? Me, apparently. In defence of my excessiveness, this dress was only 99$ (+a 10$ donation). Therefore, I’m out officially 201.10$ for two dresses. Not bad, not bad.

This is certainly much more of a regular wedding dress. And it is amazing. I will definitely be wearing this on my wedding day! And my first dress could be worn on another day of our full weekend wedding retreat. When else does one get to wear a white dress?


This dress was purchased at an event in Ottawa organised by the Breast Dress Project.  All of the dresses were donated, and the proceeds go towards breast cancer research.

The Breast Dress Project was launched in November 2009 by two friends committed to making a difference in the lives of women. Not only will The Breast Dress project raise funds for breast cancer research but it will provide an opportunity for future Bride’s to feel beautiful on their special day too and they’ll know they’ve made a difference.

The dress has a couple of stains on it (easy to fix), and needs a good cleaning – some dirt under the skirt (no one can see it though). Luckily, the dress is all polyester and I’ve already googled some instructions on how to clean your own dress. I’m not ready to spend 200$ at the dry cleaners for a dress that cost me 99$!


It will also need some slight alterations, because it’s too tight right now. But so close! The panels needs to be a bit bigger just to fit. Although I can wedge myself in there (and my posture becomes stellar), but the whole breathing portion of life is affected.

I am so so so so so happy about this dress. I was not ready to spend a pretty penny to get a gorgeous wedding dress – it just didn’t seem worthwhile to me. So now I was able to get a dress that fit my budget, and the money went to a worthy cause. Pretty fantastic in my books.

And the best part? It doesn’t feel like plastic!!
