My wedding lesson learned #1 is that you and your fiance should sit down and really, really talk about the wedding budget. It would prevent (and possibly resolve) any ugly money matters that may arise eventually.

The budget we had set aside for the gown was huge. I have this dream wedding gown designer and she charges a lot but I like all of her works (even the designs that aren't really my favorite). You can see that they are of superb quality. Besides, I have yet to read of an unsatisfied bride; plus, the design I want, if not done correctly, have a tendency to appear tacky. I'm already resolved to going to this designer, but when I found out about pre-owned wedding dresses, it got me thinking. Will I be willing to wear a used wedding gown if it means wearing an original Vera Wang or Monique Lhuillier? Better yet, will Mr. J be willing to sell my wedding gown after our wedding? I think I am.
