- Wedding: June 2014
so yesterday I went with my mum for my first go at trying on wedding dresses. I was super excited and so very very open to trying on anything. Apart from some really ‘oh I don’t have any of the bigger sizes left’ type comments – I’m a us8/10 – it was a really fun experience and I didnt let that bother me, hey a number is a number and if it looked good now and I DO drop a dress size more the better.
Anyway I tried on maybe 6 dresses and they were beautiful but still felt like I was dressing up in someone else’s clothes. Until the last one. Ah maggie S you sure know how to make ’em. As she was corsetting it up (which by the way is SUCH a god send and I want to wear one all the time) I suddenly became teary. Walked outside and mum burst into tears. Then me again. Couldn’t believe it! I NEVER thought I’d have that reaction, didn’t really cry when we got engaged and have just been more super excited about the whole thing really. But wow. Felt like the most beautiful woman in the world. Going to try on others and may indeed find some or one that tops it but its incredible how this was NOT something I’d have chosen and wasn’t what I was looking for at all. In fact on the website it looks like a different dress! wont share any more details until I pick one but im so excited about the whole Thing! Good luck if you’re trying on dresses soon! x
