- Wedding: April 2014
Hello ladies! I took last weekend off from dress shopping, but I am back to whine and ask for more moral support and good luck waves!
Since last time, I have hired an hourly wedding planner. We’re having our first real consultation tomorrow, but at our initial meeting she essentially told me that I have plenty of time and not to let the consultants scare me into buying something I don’t love. She’s not going to come dress shopping with me, since she can’t make anything that doesn’t exist in the store materialize for me, but I’m hoping that if I get to the point where I find something decent but am hesitating, she’ll be able to push me in the right direction.
I’ve got a new strategy. Instead of taking in pictures, I am taking dress numbers. I think the consultants have been latching on to unimportant details in the pictures and excluding options that might be just fine. So I just finished going through ALL the websites of ALL the designers the store carries and putting together a list of 31 dresses by Romona Keveza, Lazaro, and Pronovias that appear to meet my requirements.
I already know they don’t have either of the two dresses I’m most interested in, but they’ve got to have at least a few of the ones on my list, right?
Although I mean realistically I know that’s not true… they could have carefully edited their collection down to nothing but strapless mermaids and when I ask for a ballgown with straps they could sneer like some Disney witch and tell me I’ll never find what I’m looking for, neveeeeeeeeeer muahahaha!!!
So please please please send me good luck waves Sunday afternoon/evening!!! I have already made some appointments for the following two weekends and I would LOVE to cancel them!!!
