- Wedding: July 2012
So, I picked out my dress several months ago…I’ve been having a fight within myself about it ever since I took my mom to see it and she gave me the cold shoulder about the whole thing. I obsessed over pictures of myself in it. Some days I was fine with it and other days, I drove myself nuts….and last week I convinced myself I might need a whole new dress….I even called my sales person to ask if I could still exchange (because my dress had never left the store and it was an in-stock item)….and she said yes so I was seriously considering trying other gowns, even though my mom said I was crazy and kept trying to convince me she didn’t hate my dress.
We made an appointment to put my dress back on…but I told the lady how I’ve been feeling.
I think I must have made things super akward for my original bridal consultant lady because she wasnt there when I came in today, it was someone else. lol…which I was kinda glad because this other just thought I wanted to see my dress, she assumed it had just come in or something….so she was super upbeat and wasn’t making things weird for me.
I was feeling a little better before I went in, I was going to be open to the idea of sticking with my dress so long as everything felt “right”….I had brought my new sash and my shoes….and she put me in it and I felt amazing. I decided to rethink my viel completley and go with something longer and with lace edges…since this is a mexican wedding, I thought a bit of a mantilla inspired viel could be more fitting.
Well ladies, I think I fell in love all over again….a weight has been lifted. At this point I do not see myself looking back at all with regrets. I hope this gives hope to other brides who struggle with dress regret. It sure is no fun!!!
