I’m Engaged! Now What? 10 Questions I Have Now That I’ve Said “Yes”

Big Dress Or LWD?

As part of my “keep it small” mindset, I’ve been tossing around the idea of saving money on a wedding gown by doing a non-traditional white formal dress. I’ve already started clicking through Shopstyle for fancy white dresses that range from $200 to $600 instead of breaking the bank for a dress that costs more than a grand. Plus, as a Nigerian woman (Edo) marrying a Nigerian man (Yoruba), I want to dress in traditional wear during the reception. So I just don’t see the point in going for broke for a fluffy white dress that I’ll only wear for a few hours.

But they are pretty…decisions, decisions.
