- Wedding: December 2010
so, the fiance and i are flying back home later this week for lots of different reasons – we have a formal to attend on thursday evening, a banquet on friday, two birthday parties on saturday, and mother’s day on sunday – whew! talk about a fun-packed four-day weekend, haha! anyway, the reason for my post (sort of): since we are going to be spending a few days back at home (where we plan on getting married! :D), we decided we’d take advantage of some of the free time we’ll have during the days and start taking care of some of the wedding stuff. We’re planning on going reception-site hunting on thursday morning (woohoo!). And on friday, my mom and i are going to go look at dresses at a boutique that’s about 10-15 minutes from my parents’ house (yess!). *note: mom and i also plan on going to have sushi at this awesome sushi place nearby too (double-yess!!). anywho – focus future.mrs.v, focus! – i am going to be completely honest here: i am terrified of dress looking! not shopping, looking. i’ve found if i tell myself that we’re just looking (and not shopping), i don’t get as intimidated. something about the word shopping implies that i must find something that fits and that i like and must purchase it at that moment (mind you, we’ve got a good 17-20 months before the wedding, haha!) – and that scares me. i don’t know why though! perhaps because:
(1) i hate dress shopping!
(2) i get discouraged when i can’t find something i love… "/
(3) the prices make me nervous – i’m afraid i’ll fall madly in love with something completely out of my budget – boo! 🙁
(4) and, oh yes, i’ve never been wedding dress
shopping looking before!! =O thus, i have no idea what to expect.
who would have ever thought i’d get so worked up over looking at dresses. isn’t this supposed to be fun?! "/
anyway… any suggestions on how to make my first trip to the bridal boutique a successful one (i.e. not so intimidating/stressful/scary, etc.) would be most definitely appreciated! thanks in advance! and thanks for reading through my nonsense, haha!
happy monday!! 😀
