- Wedding: August 2012
And it’s $200, ta’boot!
I’ve gained a lot of weight in the past four years (from a size 7 to a size 16), due to a thyroid condition, and trying on dresses just made me feel blah. No emotion from my family to push me one way or the other (other than being constantly told I should stick with an empire waist because they made me look “smaller”).
Each time I went I just left feeling worse about myself! And they all ended with tears to my Fiance who has been very encouraging and supportive whilst I’ve lacked it else where. Finally, Sunday, Fiance and I went to Davids Bridal together – despite everyone telling us what a bad idea it was for him to see me in my dress – and with his suggestion of looking at shorter dresses, were able to find this one in about 30 minutes. I tried it on and we both decided it was perfect, expecially because we’ve switched from a large wedding to a less stressful, small garden wedding in Niagra Falls with a cake and punch reception.
I feel soooo much better now that I have something!
