So all you ladies out there, I don’t know how long you have been waiting for your dress to arrive, but I have definitely been waiting an eternity. First, I’ll go into the history of my dress, mainly because I have nothing to do today and I can’t stop thinking about the wedding, so I might as well get some advice from my fellow bees. Anyway, I walked into the shop with my mom and told the lady I wanted a fitted bodice, asymetrical rouching and waistline, and ruffles. VOILA!!! I found the Allure 8705. My dream dress. I didn’t have the moment of crying, but I just felt so comfortable and warm and fuzzy in my dress, I didn’t want to take it off! And when I did I had to put it on about three more times before I finally left the shop, after buying it of course. So, like I said, I’ve been waiting an eternity for this beauty to come in (since Dec 28 to be exact). Anyone else waiting for theirs? How long do you have to wait?? They told me that I wouldn’t get mine for 4-5 months!!!
In the meantime I’ve been looking into veils and jewelry and whatnot. So…my mom bought me this necklace and earring set for a wedding present. It was expensive and I think it is quite pretty. However, I don’t think I want to wear it for the wedding. How do I let her down easy without quashing her feelings? Mind you, she already had a cry-sesh about how every suggestion she makes I don’t consider or hate and how she isn’t involved and that she won’t put her self out there anymore because she doesn’t want to get hurt anymore. (I tried telling her she needs to recognize that it is my wedding and just because I don’t want to use her ideas doesn’t mean I don’t want her to be there every step of the way and that I don’t love her.)
Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can find a 45” ivory veil with soutache edging? I’ve been looking at esty and other sites but I can’t find what I’m looking for. HELP!!!
Is anyone else waiting for the same dress or an Allure? Love to hear your stories!!
