- Wedding: October 2010
Sooo, I don’t know if any of you guys watched last night, but it was “bride” night, which I thought was kind of cute! Except the premise was that they wree literally onn their way to their wedding, when you could completely tell the dresses hadn’t been altered, steamed, etc….anyway I digress. So I am watching, FI is on the computer making himself some new playlists. He finishes up, comes and sits by me, and lo and behold, the bride comes out in a dress VERY similar to mine. Like, so similar I thought it was mine, until I started noticing the details.
First dress is hers, second dress is mine, if they come through in the right order.
So, we are watching, she comes on, FI looks at her dress, and goes……
“Ewwww. Is she trying to look like the little mermaid or something?”
All the blood drained from my face….I had actually considered getting that dress, STRONGLY considered it, and the reason I did not is because I found MY dress, VERY similar, but with a more interesting back detail, at Davids. So I asked what he did not like about it?
“The top I guess, the part on her boobs. Its crazy looking.”
In other words, the beaded bust that I loved so much and just HAD to find on any wedding gown I even considered….
“And its a-symmetrical. I don’t really like that either.”
Silence from me….trying to come up with something to say….
“Is that your dress?”
Me:”Oh, no! Don’t be silly!” Trying to smile while I actually feel like throwing up….
“Umm, maybe its her I don’t like?” I think he was starting to sense that there was more going on than just some random dress on tv…
So, in the end, I broke down crying and said my dress was similar enough that I was now terrified that he wouldn’t like it, and that he is a HORRIBLE liar (UH, sure thats, uh, great, uh, really, uh I’m not , uh, lying!) so I will know if he hates it….help! How am I supposed to handle this? He is supposed to LOVE the way I look walking down the aisle, not be comparing me to some disney movie….sigh.
