- Wedding: December 2012
Choosing a dress should be easy right? I mean.. you put it on you like it or hate it, simple but it’s NOT
I want something that doesnt seem to exist because nothing gives me that feeling of “omg” and it just annoys me and upsets me so much. I have my second dress ordered (cancelled first and exchanged for this one) and won’t come in until June, my wedding isn’t until December so I have to wait for it to come in and hope I like it in person but I have seen several pictures of brides in it in the white (I tried on ivory and ordered white) but I don’t like it in the pictures.
I think I picked another dress that doesnt say “ME”. Alittle about me is this..
I don’t wear dresses, never liked them because they just feel weird on me. I’m not a girlie girl, getting dressed up for me is a black pair of dress pants with a cute shirt and flats. But for my wedding I want a beautiful dress, that I love, I can dance in, that I can say is MY dress I want it to show ME..
But yet.. I keep choosing these damn dresses that I end up hating ;(
My cousin (MOH) thinks that maybe it’s because I’m uncomfortable with my weight, and can’t get past that. Which I do plan to lose weight (hopefully 50lbs by the wedding), but I am wondering if I should even bother doing that because what happens if I lose weight and the dress not fit. Then what.. haha
Anyways. now I’m blabbering which seems to be what I do often nowadays. But I just have so much crap on the brain and its starting to seep through the hands and mouth..
So.. after my cousin came today we looked at dresses online and I showed her pictures of all the ones I tried on and didn’t tell her which one I picked. I wanted to see her reaction to them all.
Comments she made about several of them were exactly how I felt about them, so it’s nice to know we have some simliar taste. When we came across my dress, she didnt say anything, so I then said I liked that one but they didnt have it in white only ivory and that I liked the bead work but wasn’t sure how it would look in white. She said it was “ok”.. and it didnt really hurt my feelings because its what I was thinking as well.
When we came across the first dress that I ever tried on she said “ooh I like that one” I said I did to it, it looked fun and she agreed that it matched my personality. It had personality and the “fun” effect I wanted but it was heavy and it was almost $1000 and at the time I felt it wasn’t the right fit. But I am thinking maybe I should spend that extra money for it..
So I’m asking opinions again..
The beaded one I ordered or the very first dress I was immediately drawn to when I first went to dress shop.
Dress #1 is the fun personality dress I am going back to. The top would need to be altered, its alittle big and they didn’t use clips to fit it to me. But that can be easily fixed.
Dress #2 is the one I ordered (dress #2 mind you haha). It wouldn’t need much alterations besides the train because it has a decent train but I do NOT want a train and I don’t like the bustle look so it would need to be under the dress.
Both are in IVORY and I do not like the color at all. I want shiny white. I am thinking about going back to David Bridal and taking the WHITE dresses (not my size, way smaller) and putting them up against me to see the difference.
