- Wedding: October 2014
Sooo when i first got engaged…..I fell in LOVE with a dress….absolutely loved it…..was sure it was the one! But I keep thinking about it and keep going back to it….no matter how hard I try and talk myself out of it….I cant help but feel it could be THE dress….
Now you may be wondering why I am trying to talk myself out of it….well i had contacted a shop owner to see if it could be brought in for me to try on…..and it couldnt but she did have a lace bolero and straless tulle ballgown…..granted 3 sizes too small on both….but i hated how i looked in it…..
but now that i look at it….the 1 picture i took (NO i will not post it….in order to remain anonymus since i know for fact people in know IRL are on here and they dont know that I am, and i have a scar on my arm that is easily identifiable…..)….but i hated how i looked….but now that i look at it….it was a drop waited tulle ball gown WITH extra peti coat ( the lady insisted)….and the bolero wasnt quite the same sleeve and it was more high in the neck….and it came to just below my mid breast (since it was too small)…..plus the dress had roushing (?sp)….around the middle plus the drop waist and the extra peti coat I am wondering if I am trying to talk myself out of it too soon….
my mom was actually who pointed out that it was really just me in a ball gown with a lace jacket that was not that similiar to the dress i love except that it was a ball gown with lace on top….
Now i have the oppertunity to try it on….and i can buy it off dressilyme.com….
but i am worried that my first instinct was wrong…and that i am talking myself out of THE dress….before actually having it on!
what would you do? should i try it on?? or just keep looking at what i have moved on too….
this is the dress i DREAM of getting married in….it is literally everything i have ever wanted….
but that first experience has left me shaken….what if i still hate it….i have lost weight and it will be in a size closer to what fits…..
i need some guidance here…..i guess….this probably sounds dumb but that first experience squeezed into that hot mess of a get up shook my confidence to the bloody core!
for refernce….here is my DREAM dress
and what i have been looking at….
for now i have been looking at corset backs thinking that would make me look thinner….
but idk here bees….i think i am more scared then anything….
for reference i am 5’4″ tall….i am down to a street size 18…..(hoping a size 12 by the wedding)……more of an odd pear/expanded hourglass….I wear a 38F bra size…..and have fairly toned arms…..
idk if any of that makes a difference….
