- Wedding: July 2013
I’ve had a very difficult time finding a dress for my wedding and have tried on tons and tons of them. Some of them I liked but never really got “the feeling” that everyone talks about. I’m on a bit of a budget and was able to find a secondhand dress (allure 8862) for a ridiculously good price that would need a few alterations (mainly length and bust area). This is the first dress I tried on where I felt like a bride… I didnt cry or anything but i looked into the mirror and thought “hmm i could see this working” Its comfortable, flowy and easy to move/dance in. BUT its not what i originally thought I’d like…I thought I wanted a more form fittting mermaid style dress. I decided that it was the one I wanted to go with and got really excited but when I sent it to my mom she wasn’t really excited but said she liked it just pictured me in something different and FMIL just said it wasn’t flattering, didn’t fit my body type, the ruffles were “way too much” and it makes me look like a child in a big girl dress….YIKES….of course now im defintiely second guessing myself. I do look young for my age and now im worried that what she is saying is true and its just the reality of it….what do you hoenstly think?
