- Wedding: September 2012
So I guess I’ll just say a few things about my whole dress situation.
>First of all, my mom wants to buy it, but never has time to take me dress shopping. I’ve gone by myself to try some on, and at this point I’m limited to either ordering online, or just buying off the rack because I’m less than 4 months away.
>>Secondly, I don’t want them to spend a lot on the dress. Although she’s given me the freedom in price range, quite frankly; I feel like I’d look just as great in a $100 dress as I would in a $1000 dress. And I’d perfer that money be spent on something else for the wedding.
>>>Third and alas my greatest dilema: Pre-engagement I had a few dresses in mind. My likes: All lace with no train and no beading -or- Very dramatic floral or ruffle skirt and in my wildest dreams I’d wear a tea-length gown. My wedding will be a bit casual, labor day weekend in a vineyard, under a big oak tree.
So as I’ve gone dress shopping (by myself) I’ve tried on my dream lace gown, didn’t work. I tried the crazy floral gown and it was nice, a bit heavy, but not in stock in my size, and I tried on my favorite tea length gown and I felt like a balloon. 🙁 I do have to contenders. Both fit and flare dresses, but one totally glamourous chiffon @ $700 and the other a very elegant lace dress @ $1100. And tonight I found this awesome dress (UNDER $100) which I would totally try: http://www.dressbarn.com/detail/strapless-ruffled-bodice-dress/101041636/101
but like I said, I don’t even know what I want at this point.
So now I’m back at zero with my dress. My mom is planning to take me dress shopping… I don’t know when. And I do like a few of the dresses we have planned to go see.
But I have come to the point where I just feel a bit hopeless, uninterested and just lost. I know what I don’t like, but there’s nothing that stands out as my “dream dress.” And I feel like this should be totally done since the wedding is in like 100 days!! 🙁
Have any of you felt this way? How can I commit to a wedding gown, when I can’t even find anything I really love?
