A semi-quick recap. A year and a half before the wedding, my mom, FMIL and I went dress shopping back home and found a dress that they loved. I was worried it looked a little too wrinkly for my taste so I decided to keep looking. Four months later I took two of my grad school friends to see the same dress in a different store. They quickly deemed the dress too boring and convinced me to get a different dress which I put a deposit on. My mom was not thrilled with the dress I got and I eventually understood why.Eager to have any other dress, I was very relieved when the store agreed to transfer my deposit from the dress I ordered to the dress my mom had originally liked.
It is now 10 months before the wedding and I think I hate my current dress as well. I feel like my dress makes a beautiful gown and a rather boring wedding dress and wish that it had more embellishments. I have spent the last few months trying to envision (and frantically Photoshop) sashes, shoes, jewelry, and trims but I feel rather ridiculous spending more to make the dress “wearable” then I have on any other piece of formal wear in my life when the dress was already so expensive to begin with.
My fiance has offered to talk to the store and see what they can do (since I’m too chicken to) and while I’m anxious to see what they will say, I’m also worried that they will hate me since even I think I sound ridiculous. Even if they let me switch dresses (again!) I’m worried that I will just go through this all over again in another 4 months. I am normally a very rational person so I have no idea why I’m having so much trouble figuring out what I want for this! Sorry to ramble on, but I would really love so feedback from all of you lovely bees!
