- Wedding: May 2013 - Kempinski San Lawrenz, Gozo
I’ve been really nervous about my 1st fitting tomorrow. I’m a size 16/18 and I’ve always been really self-conscious about my appearance, so I’m terrified that the dress won’t fit, or that it won’t look good on me. Not to mention the feeling that i HAVE to like the dress because I spent a fortune on it and the wedding’s drawing quite close now.
Last night I had this awful dream about it…must have been the anxiety kicking in. I dreamt that I went to try on the dress…and it wasn’t the one I ordered! I ordered a simple flowy chiffon gown with soft floral appliques, and ended up trying on a tight-fitting mermaid gown with LOADS of bling and lace, and then a huge puff of tulle coming out at the bottom. omg it was awful.
I went to tell the sales-attendant about this, obviously in a state of panic. She tried to assure me that THAT was the dress I ordered. When I insisted that I had ordered the chiffon gown, she said “well it was too expensive for you, anyway”, and she went on to explain how much I had spend on the dress, and how much money I had been paying in installments. Then I went completely berserk, screaming at the bitch and telling her that my financial situation is none of her business. I followed her all around the store, yelling obscenities at her and demanding MY dress. The girl eventually shut up and burst into tears…but I still had to make do with the horrible dress. (I’ve NEVER treated a person like that, no matter how angry I get)
I was wondering whether I had time to order another dress and get refunded, when I woke up, gasping. omg.
Omg please God don’t let this actually happen tomorrow! 🙁
