When my wedding dress comes it is going to be like X-mas!!

Guess who just snagged an Oleg Cassani CT285 wedding dress, a David’s Bridal long line felina strapless bra and a David’s Bridal wedding dress slip all for $281.35 (including shipping)… I did and we are stoked!

The dress retails for $1100, the slip for $49.00 and the bra for $80.00, we got such a steal and did a heck of a job staying under our $400 wedding dress budget.

The dress is brand new, the bra was used for a fitting and the slip was worn previously but I don’t mind. All I wanted was for the dress to be new and authentic. Now all I need is the matching veil and some shoes I like!

N says we should take the dress, bra and slip in to the David’s bridal shop for alterations, to get the matching slip and to rub in the great deal we got on the dress. I am considering it, we are going to have to hold off on the alterations though especially since the period is late again…

Just wanted to share that great deals I got with everyone. It really does pay to shop around! Those bridal shops want to create a sense of urgency at the shop so they can pressure you in to completing the sale. They work hard at it and we almost fell for it. Good thing we didn’t because it saved us a whopping $947!

Also, thanks a bunch for all the thoughts and advice about Hailey and her poo shenanigans. We are attempting to remedy a possible health issue of hers. We suspect she is constipated and that is why she is pooing in strange places (thanks to much google searching and your comments).

Now she is locked in the garage with a litter box, water, a bed and some wet/ oily cat food. Apparantly cooking oil can help with constipation. So we’ll see how often she poos and what the consistancy is. Fun huh?

  1. Well, the dress news is much more pleasant that the poo news, but it is good that it attracted your attention enough if there was a health issue involved. Animals can only speak to us if we listen. They just don’t speak with words. 😉

  2. That is SO GREAT!!! I love getting a screaming deal. A few months ago we had a vacuum cleaner salesperson come to our house and we fell in-love with the vacuum. $3175 for the vacuum! She was going to give us a “deal” if we bought right then and there (and there was NO option to buy it if she walked out the door) and only charge us $2500. COUGH! Mr Hyphen laughed in her face. We got the same one on Craigslist the next week for $125!!!!
