Hooray! I am honored to announce that 2000 Dollar Wedding kindred spirit, Casandra, wants to give her stunningly beautiful wedding dress to one of you! Here's the scoop from Casandra:
Aaron and I are high school sweethearts. We got married on June 12, 2010 after being in love for 9 years! Our wedding (and reception) was held at a community center in nearby Old Town Alexandria. Our moms graciously helped us host a casual midday ceremony and reception that was so "us." Because it was a family affair, the wedding planning process was definitely a test of our ability to remain flexible and compromise. Important to him (and the moms): We had a Christian ceremony led by Aaron's long-time pastor. Important to me: A fun, low stress casual day with as many eco-conscious choices (compostable tableware, minimal stationary, electronic RSVP, location accessible via public transportation, locavore catering). Our wedding day was a win, win, win for all involved. Many of our guests told us it was the most fun they had had at a wedding. Mission accomplished!Feel free to check out their wedding website or see more photos from the wedding.
I want to give my dress away to a like-minded bride (or as Sara]would say, "a kindred spirit"). I'd like the next bride who wears this dress to be a person who is entering into marriage mindfully, by seeing through the wedding industry's hype to make choices that suit her values.
Here's the scoop on the dress:
Size 4, White, hemmed (I'm 5'5" and wore 2.5 inch wedge heels with the dress)
Product Description: You'll look and feel fabulous in this long, flowing goddess dress. The soft charmeuse design features straps that cross and drape elegantly in the back. The empire waist and flattering silhouette make this dress perfect for any special occasion! Available in Ivory or White. Double lined. Side zip. Imported polyester. Dry clean only.
