- Wedding: June 2013
Well basically my fiance and I live in NC and all our family lives 500 miles away in NJ. I really don’t have any real friends down here at all. After 2 years all i’ve got is a few aquantances. But heres my problem… FI and I were planning on going up to NJ for labor day weekend and i was gonna go to some dress shops there with my family. Well my FMIL and FBIL and his GF came down for a visit this weekend so i went to a few dress shops with her down here. (Figuring that I’m super picky so its gonna take me months to find a dress so i mine as well see what they have down here and start early)… BAD IDEA…
I found a dress I love! It was like the 3rd one i tried on that day out of prolly like 15 and it was just every single dress after that was getting compared to this one. Like i was just trying to get the others to match all the qualities of this one. I have to say i really could picture myself wearing this dress on my wedding day. And I know my FI would love it.
BUTTT…. I always wanted to go dress shopping with my mom and my sister. If it were my mother instead of FI’s this weekend i prolly would have just said YES to the Dress with a smile on my face. BUT my moms not here. Instead I had to email her pics and call her and try to explain it. And I just started crying cus I felt so alone in this and i wanted my own mother there.
The predicament is that Its a discontinued dress by a designer exclusive to that store. Theres a chance i might be able to order it but i have to call and find out today if thats even possible. They sell a lot of dresses off the rack but they do take pretty good care of them. The dress in the store fit like a glove – i really wouldn’t need many alterations if any. So it could sell out at any second and could lose it. If its orderable – it does cost an extra 100 bucks to order. 50 dollars to hold it (non refundable unless i buy the dress.)
My FMIL said she’d pay the extra 100 to order it if the one in store sells out (but she also said she’d buy the 150 dollar discontinued veil. My mom said she’d se if she can come down over labor day (instead of me going up) so she could see the dress and if i hold it and decide against it she’d give me the 50 bucks) – i’m on a tight budget and the dress is already just slightly over. I just don’t know what to do!!
So here it is…
I never would have thought id want a strapless but they can add a halter strap to match the dress if i want to.
The detail on it is shaped like a marquise and theres a few marquise stones on it as well – it matches my E-Ring!
