Is it bad luck to buy your second wedding dress at the same store as you bought for your first engagement?

Sara Collins, on June 12, 2024 at 7:01 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 8
Hello everyone. I am getting married to my wonderful FH next year. I am currently hunting for my wedding dress and everything is very expensive. We live in a very rural area and it’s difficult to find something. I was previously engaged many years ago but never married and bought a dress nearby. The engagement didn’t last long after the dress and ended up not having to pay for the full thing since they took it back. I am very superstitious and don’t want to make any repeats. However… it’s been difficult. Is it bad luck to buy my wedding dress at the place I bought my first one but returned? Please be honest. Thank you!

    Unless your first engagement in some way because of the dress, I don’t see any potential bad luck about it!

    You can certainly look at the events being good for you. You avoided someone with whom the marriage would not work out. You also were able to avoid buying a dress at full price that you wanted to return. Most wedding dresses are sold without any return or refund option. That store has been very kind to you.

    I don’t think a bridal store or its owners had anything to do with the break up of your first engagement.

    Hello! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! When it comes to finding your perfect dress in a rural area, it’s like looking for a hidden gem—it might take some searching, but it will be worth it. About revisiting the shop from your previous engagement, think of it this way: it's not the place that shapes your destiny, but the choices and meanings you attach to it. Every day offers a new beginning, and this could be a beautiful start to your new chapter. Good luck!

    I don't think it would be bad luck at all. Happy dress shopping!
