- Wedding: June 2011
I’ve been looking at Etsy lately and also read about people in the board who had their dress made from a local seamstress. Because of this, a thought has entered my mind: did I buy my dress too soon? Did I actually considered all the options? I actually started looking after I had made the deposit on my dress. After, I went to look to other dress shops and couldn’t find anything that in my eyes could top my dress.
However, I’ve been having one regret lately: should I have asked my mom to make my dress? She is an excellent seamstress. The best I know. She’s made the best dresses for super special ocassions and I know she would have done an excellent job. After thinking this I feel kind of sad and I regret not giving her a chance and buying my dress too soon.
I guess is more of a sentimental reason. I know she could have been able to make my dream dress, however, we live far appart (she lives in my hometown) and I wouldn’t have been able to fly in for fittings, etc.
I know it’s not too late, I could still ask her to make my dress, and sell the one I bought or wear one for the ceremony and one for the reception, but I don’t know if it could be pushing it. We’re flying to my hometown a couple of days before the wedding, and she could make all the arrangements to the dress, but I also wouldn’t like her to work like crazy for two days for me.
Ahhhh I don’t know…I’m just confussed, maybe I just miss my mom 🙁 maybe I’m having my usual doubts on my dress, which by the way, I love.
