I got engaged on August 2nd 2009 and like so many people out there, I don’t have a job.
So I started to look at different local bridal boutiques and asking for their gowns price range. I realized that most of the bridal gowns start at $ 500.00 some shops will tell you that they have gowns starting for less but you will get a very simple dress and I wanted to look like a bride!
I turned my attention to local bridal consignment boutiques and I found one at the yellow pages with only one review “Bride’s House of Originals”. I read the review and thought to my self, why not? So I went the following day which was on Monday August 10th 2009. When I first arrived I thought the boutique was kind of simple and outdated looking but I kept on telling my self, don’t judge a book by its cover! I was greeted by the lady who owns the shop, I told her what I wanted and she showed me the gowns she had my size. I found three gowns that had never been worn with the original tickets attached to them, with the original price. I was very surprised and impressed, the gowns look great and the second one I tried on I fell in love with!
I got a brand new Michelangelo gown original from David’s Bridal, it retailed for $599.99 and I got it for $320.00 dollars!!!!!! . I also got the flower girls dress for
So if there’s anyone out there ON A BUDGET? I advice you to give this little vintage funky looking boutique, you might find a great bridal gown deal like I did
Pros: Great gowns at very low prices
Cons: Shop needs some TLC
