- Wedding: December 1969
First off: I been engaged for awhile now. And one day, last summer, my future mother in law wanted to go look at wedding dress. And, I was up for it! I wanted to see what was available and I had bookmarked a couple I liked. So we went over to David’s Bridal and I tired on my favorite dress and really liked it and so did my mom (who I texted) and my FMIL.
I wasn’t going to buy the dress than because geez, it was two years out but my FMIL got it her head it would be discontinued before than and blah and blah..and the next thing I knew she was slapping down her credit card and signing the reciept. And, now I have my first dress. my I like it dress that my FMIL bought.
Than, my FMIL started suggesting I looked for shorter dress for the ceremony because she thinks the dress we bought would be too heavy and hot to get married on the beach. So I looked for “beachy dress” and found two that I loved..But I was okay with the dress that she had already purchased..
I put them in my bookmarked section and continue on with my life..till today when I walked into a bridal shop to look at bridesmaid dresses to figure out shape, price, and stuff with one of my bm…and as I walked in, what do I see: my dress and all of its awesomeness. The saleslady talked me into “just trying it on”..and it’s amazing! I love how I look in it. It made me cry. So now I have bought a dress one and I am in love with a dress two. And, I don’t know what to do.
I’m pretty sure David’s won’t take back my dress 1 even though it has no alternations done on it and it hasn’t been worn…and I don’t want to offend my FMIL to ask if I could sell it online so I can buy my new dress. The dress one was only 350 and the dress I love is $700. Both are under my original budget: one by a lot and one by a little.
Which dress do you like best on me? Please ignore the bra straps :S And the crappy phone pic.
So should I buy the dress 2 and try to return/sell number 1? Than should I tell FMIL or keep it secret to the big surprise? Or just keep dress 1 and call it a day?
*le sigh* and, I shrugged at all those other girls saying “aww..that would never be me, I know what I want” hehe. 😉
