- Wedding: August 2010
My original post stated this:
About six months ago my aunt found what she called the perfect dress for me. She lives in ND and I live in Mt so we did this via phone and computer. She found a dress on ebay..the pics looked great so i agreed for her to buy it for me. She insisted on paying for it as a wedding present. Weeks go by and still no dress.. i called my aunt and she says omg the dress came the other day and it is beautiful. I felt irate that she didnt just have it sent to me, she said its because she wanted to see it first. then she proceeded in telling me that it had a huge tear in the train and she was going to fix it. I agreed and a few months past and she still hadn’t gotten to that dress, she just sent me pics of a friend of hers trying it on
. she said that i had plenty of time until the wedding but in my eyes that wasn’t the point. I wanted to make sure the dress would fit. I got tiered of waiting to feel like a bride so I took my mom and went to a bridal shop in my town/ with no intention of buying anything/ just to have fun. Well I found the perfect dress and it was on a mega clearence ( $2,200 original $500 i paid). I put it on hold and called my aunt. she was offended that i even went to a bridal shop. I asked her to send the dress and two weeks later it still didnt come so i bought that dress at the bridal shop. She came to mt for a few day visit and she wanted to see the other dress on me. She said she liked it but the dress she had gotten me would look better. I didnt want to offend her so i agreed to let her mail that other dress to me. I think my mind is already made up about the dress i bought. she said i should just give it a try and she seemed understanding if I still wanted to wear the one i bought. Used dress with fixed hole….make my aunt happy… or new dress I bought myself? Both will cost the same in the end. My question to you knowledgeable people is…..
When the dress comes in the mail in a few days and if dont like it, how do i tell my aunt that im going to go with the dress I bought? Im sure there will be things about both dresses that I will like and dislike but the fact is the dress she bought me is used and possibly may carry some bad luck. and honestly after trying on a few dresses i dont think that style will look good. My mother put that dress into words” Its like a childs dress” the one I bought she thought of it as “safisticated and elegant.” Please tell me what you would do to smooth things over and still get to wear the dress you would want. thanks 🙂
In the continued post I finally have the dress in and took pics. I dont know which one to pick, im sort of leaning toward one in particular but want both to have a fair chance. Both have good and bad things about them.
The dress my aunt bought me…JASMINE Used..is light and fluffy/ airy and cool. It is white and has beautiful crystals throughout the entire dress. It has perfect length for me and has its bustle already on the back. I feel fun in it.. flaws… I dont think the top part of it looks very good..too loose of bust ( i need a bit more boob LOL). It has an large hole that was fixed but you cant see it on the top of the train…has another smaller hole unfixed under the train.
The dress I bought PRONOVIOUS…. brand new, It has just enough crystal on the busty area to catch your eye. top makes me look a bit more slender I think anyway. Long train.. already bustled. with the slip under it it appears to be like a cinderella gown. I feel elegant in it. flaws. its ivory.. still has to be brought and have altered to fit. heavy material might be hot in the august wedding.
Im torn between them…. which one do you all like best for looks 🙂 thanks 🙂
