- Wedding: June 2014
So I bought my dress months ago, like 4 or 5. I went with just my mother and FI’s mom, we all fell in love with this dress. The sample was 10 times too big, not the right color and so far from what I was looking for that I almost didn’t try it on! The moms convinced me to and once the salon girls got it all snugged up and showed me how it would look in all white the crying started. I ordered it and about 5 weeks later it arrived and it has been stashed at my moms since. FI knows I have my dress but he doesn’t have any clue what it looks like.
Well, last night I had wedding stuff scattered all over the place and he started looking at the dress book and noticed some pages I had the corners turned in on, he turned to the page with my dress and asked, are you really considering this one because I always imagined you in a sleeveless ball gown……….I just laughed and said “we’ll see!”
OMG I just played it off, went to “take a shower” and balled for a good 10 minutes.
I picked a form fitting, trumpet style, all lace with awesome beading, low back, strap dress……… my father hasn’t even seen it on me and the moment he saw it, he said “this is how I always pictured my little MrsFarm”.
I did try on the ballgowns that FI was talking about and they are heavy (June in Missouri will more than likely be hot and humid and with pictures outside, I wanted lightweight) , I felt like I was pulling on the top and I get lost in them because I’m so short, this dress is comfortable, lightweight and just feels right. I think ballgowns fit some people just right and some not.
Any other bees have this kind of issue? FI have an idea of what your dress should be and you went a totally different direction.
I’m not changing my dress, I’ve bought it, I love it but I had really hoped that FI would love it as much as me but from his reaction last night…..I’m not so sure. I text his mom and told her what happened and she laughed, she said he has no clue what he’s talking about and you would be lovely in a potato sack don’t worry. God I love her and like usual, she’s probably right.
Of course I’m not mad at him, how could he know, just an unintentional jerk moment…….chances are by the time the wedding gets here he’ll forget he even saw it or said anything.
