- Wedding: August 2009
…yep, another dress regret post! I read them all and reassure each girl that her dress is beautiful–because they always are! And mine is beautiful too–I just keep second guessing it.
So my dress is Maggie Sottero Katelynn. I put in the order for it about a month ago, and it comes in July. I know it’s a really pretty, elegant dress, and it is very figure flattering…but at least once a week or so I go into this depression over it because it’s not what I had always pictured wearing, and I’m not sure it’s what I want to wear. I was one of those little girls who always thought about her wedding, and I guess that little 5 year old in me is saying "I want to look like a princess!". In my dress, I feel like…a girl wearing a pretty white dress. Not really like a princess 🙂 or that much like a bride, even.
I felt pretty pressured into the dress (time issues, parents and BMs liked it and were really pushing for it, etc) and so I went ahead and ordered it pretty quickly, and now 1. I would lose the deposit if I cancelled it and 2. I don’t have time to order another dress, so I’d have to get one off the rack or through Once Wed, WB classifieds, etc. AND my dress budget is way stretched already and doesn’t really have room for another dress!!
What do you think I should do? Here are a couple pics of me in my dress (this sample was like 3 sizes too big, so it will hopefully look a bit better in my size) and an example of something more like what I maybe pictured wearing.
Also, my wedding is outdoors, so the dress I bought is actually way more appropriate than the more ballgown type…sigh. I know I’m a crazy person and feel like such a brat for not just being appreciative of what I have. I just don’t want to get to my wedding day and break down in tears because I don’t love my dress! It’s the only aspect of the wedding that I’ve been second guessing this much, and it is worrying me so much.
What would you do??
