Every little girl dreams of her wedding day -- the dress, the groom, and the walk down the aisle with her father by her side. For Liz, this special day has an even deeper significance.
I can't quite remember how I stumbled upon Yerdle or begin to imagine how I survived without it. The whole concept is genius. Out with the new in with old! Let's reduce our carbon footprint, while saving a humongous amount of money!
I am a stay at home Mom, budgeting and savings are keys to a successful household. With that being said, raising a family of four on one income is not the easiest of tasks. My Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer last October. He is surviving, positively, which is amazing. After his diagnosis, we decided it was time to get married. We did everything backwards, have kids, buy a house...only thing left is to make our love and family official forever. Planning a wedding on one income with little to no leg room is not an easy task. You quickly forgo your dream wedding and start figuring every which way you can pull this off. For your Dad. For my Dad, who deserves to walk his daughter down the aisle. Anyways, I saw a wedding dress on Yerdle, for $799 YRD. I believe I had about $55 YRD at that point. I started going through everything I hadn't touched to try and sell for this dress. It wasn't my style, I didn't care for it...but it was a dress. Something I could afford! I finally reached the amount needed and just as I was about to buy it, my wish list notify came up with an entirely new dress...$300 YRD cheaper. The most amazing, dream perfect wedding dress any girl could ask for! It happened to be so close to my size that a little alteration here and there would work. The seller was amazing as well, she made me feel super special about the whole deal. The day the mail came, I'm pretty sure I gave the mailman a heart attack as I screamed up and down with joy. Of course, explaining Yerdle and my amazing score! My daughter and I opened the box and she snapped some pictures before we hid it away from Dad. Yerdle has made our dream one step closer to becoming a reality. If all works out with my Dad's health, we are hoping to tie the knot on June 11, 2016.
