- Wedding: April 2011
I picked my dress this weekend. After signing the papers and handing over the check, I was so excited. Unfortunately this momentary euphoria was replaced by all encompassing stress that it was not going to work out. That something was going to go wrong and that I had made the wrong decision. It took me awhile to realize it was just my nerves talking. That the stress of making the “right” decision had prompted a wave of anxiety. The truth is decisions made during wedding planning are like any other decisions made in life it is very difficult and usually impossible to make the best possible decision. As long as it feels good to you and you’re not hurting anyone in the process then you’re probably good to go. I am proud that I bought my dress a block away from where I live. I’m glad that I stuck to a dress that doesn’t have a train and is not strapless. I think that I’ll look formal, while still being able to use the restroom by myself and not have to make my Maid of Honor fix my dress every 10 seconds. These were the things important to me when I set out looking for a wedding dress and at least I met that criteria. The rest of whether it will work out or not, I just need to have faith and hope that anything doesn’t turn out perfect can be fixed and at the end of the day it remains a piece of clothing. I think the hard part about getting married I’ve already worked out…finding Mr. Capricorn!
