My sweet and lovely niece Rebecca Mooradian won second place in the Cheapest of the Cheap Awards 2011, awarded by The Tennessean's "Miss Cheap," Mary Hance.
I have been known as a frugal person myself because there was a time in my life when I had to be. I still love a bargain and admire frugality. Rebecca is a gal after my own heart! Below are pictures and text from The Tennessean web page.
The article doesn't tell the full story. The dress has been professionally cleaned and Jonathan Moody's mom, Rossie Moody, who is a talented seamstress altered the dress to fit. Rebecca will be as lovely as any bride in a $6000 dress.
