I really don’t know why I’m feeling this way…it’s like I’m getting cold feet with my dress!
When I first started looking at dresses I loved the style dress that I picked, a lace keyhole back dress. But when I started actually looking at all the magazines and started picturing myself, I wanted a sexy mermaid shaped dress. I wanted to look like a bombshell because everyday I’m more girly and romantic I guess you could say, I just wanted to stand out and look amazing for my FI.
When I chose a dress online that I ended up not wanting, it was simple, inexpensive, an a-line. Me and my FMIL went to David’s Bridal to get it altered because it was wayyy to big, then I found out it didn’t look good on me at all. I hated it. So I tried on other one’s and tried on a mermaid gown that I had loved on the website. It didn’t look good on me at all. I didn’t have the curves for it, and the dress itself was stiff. So I tried on another one that was on my favorites list that my FMIL loved, which was the keyhole back dress I have now.
It looked amazing. It looked great with my short hair, the back is elaborate, and I got so many compliments on it in the store, I was pretty much shocked. My FMIL was crying. lol
So, I loved it when I tried it on. It hasn’t been altered so maybe that’s what is holding me up. =/ It doesn’t fit at all, I want it tight fitting around the middle because right now it’s quite baggy in the stomach area. I have one good picture, then another picture where you can see that it doesn’t fit, and I will post them both. And it doesn’t help that everyone says that it doesn’t need taken in in the middle, if I don’t like how it fits can I tell them that? Will they alter it anyway? It kind of gaps in the back at the bottom, and I know it’s not suppose to.
But is this normal? Am I just focusing on the fantasy of wanting the mermaid, but ignorning the dress that I actually look good in? I’m so confused. I just want to know that this is normal, and that I shouldn’t have doubts. lol Maybe I’m just overwhelmed from all the plannig and everything, and because I’m terribly sick right now and have nothing else to think about, and because my alterations appointment is tomorrow. ahhh, I don’t know!
I’m hoping I fall in love with it again tomorrow when I get it pinned to me and everything. (well not pinned TO me but you know what I mean). I’ll stop rambling, here’s my dress. :p
Other picture, you can slightly see how it doesn’t quite fit.
