Kind of "offbeat", nerdy diatribe on keeping perspective

I’m so with you on this!

I’ve definitely watched too many episodes of Say Yes To The Dress and have doubted by decision – particularly because I didn’t end up doing it with my mom and it kind of hurt her feelings (whoops) but I think it has worked out for the best.

And all in all, it’s just a dress, an outfit for a special day.  

Repeat what you’ve got to, to make it work! Love it 🙂

P.S. Looks great!

Your dress is beautiful! And full points for keeping a healthy perspective. I too love my dress, but it’s a dress for a day – the day begins the lifetime, and it’s the lifetime that counts. I like to watch SYTTD (and all the wedding shoes, really) but sometimes I find them hard to swallow.

You look great.. and yes, it is just a dress. As is any other dress that you’ll wear for a few hours lol.

@jessiemaims:  That dress looks amazing on you! I had to sort of convince myself I liked my dress because it wasn’t the one I originally wanted!! You look beautiful and I love the accessories you chose to compliment your look!

@jessiemaims:  Totally there with you! I never had that gushing “this is the dress I can’t live without” say yes to the dress moment, with 10 of my closest people there with me. I ordered my dress online by myself without even trying it on (I really had to…$400 for a $2400 dress?? No brainer). I love it, and love it even more now that I’m going through alterations. But I could never be a 2 dress bride, because, it’s just a dress! You look stunning in yours by the way!

It is just a dress.  But it is a gorgeous dress that looks wonderful on you when you get married.

@jessiemaims:  It was like it was meant to be. It’s Enzoani Esme (2010 collection). I got it new with tags from a bridal shop that was trying to get rid of the dress on  A bride had ordered it and then cancelled her order and they got stuck with it!!  It was like a year and a half before my wedding, we had just gotten engaged, and I decided to go for it. I lucked out! I go back for my second fitting on July 14 and I’m going to get some pics of me in the dress, but here is the model…
