- Wedding: August 2013
Okay so like most brides as soon as the Fiance and I decided we were getting married (which happened before the proposal) I got super excited for the big one! That’s right the dress that would be the mother of all dresses. I visited a small boutique in my hometown and tried on the Ariel style 201 dress by Alfred Angelo and was immediately in love. I was convinced though that the price was far too much for any one dress and that I should continue shopping. I ventured to the infamous David’s Bridal where I purchased a dress that was decent. At least that’s the feeling I had about it IMMEDIATELY after leaving the store. Needless to say months went by and my tears fell over the fact that I knew the dress I had purchased was not ‘the one’. My Fiance convinced me to give the good folks at DB a call and see if I could make a swap. Since the dress hadn’t been altered and it still had the tags on the store manager graciously let me break the ‘no exchanges or returns’ rule. I was asisted by another consultant (keep in mind this is at a DB in a completely different state seeing as how I moved upon my FI’s return from war last fall) and the new consultant was very annoyed that I had turned down his first three attempts at finding me ‘the one’. Me, being the people pleaser I am could sense his ‘ I have other things to do today so pick one already’ attitude and caved on the dress I currently had on my body even though I knew that it wasn’t the one. Now seven months later I again feel my heart breaking everytime I look at the dress I purchased because I know that it’s all wrong. Unfortunately I just don’t know what to do. My Fiance suggested calling DB again but seeing as how I don’t want to come across as the most difficult bride ever I can’t bring myself to do it. Anyways, there is my rant, some advice would really be appreciated.
