Help I sooooo badly need help.
I went dress shopping in the summer looking to try on the Madison 4418 which I had come across on a local photographers blog. I so badly fell in love with it I specifically went to that store to try it on. I ended trying on a few dresses but narrowed it down to mori lee 1803 and madison 5515. I was so excited and overwhelmed that I didn’t realize that the 5515 was the wrong dress. I had my entire bridal party with me as well as my grandma and mom. They all gave me their opinions and more votes went to the mori lee but I really felt super excited in both but deep down felt the madison was more me. We ended up leaving so I could go home and think ( just to add in, this was a store that doesn’t allow you to take photos, which really frustrates me considering how I feel right now. I can’t compare the 2). I made an appointment a week later and brought my mom, grandma, cousin and maid of honor this time. My cousin is in the fashion industry and I trust her advice on pretty much everything clothing wise.
The second time around I went in and asked the amazingly helpful lady from the week before can she show me the 4418? And the mori lee 1803 I liked. I then found out she showed me the madison 5515 because she had noticed I really took to the bottom of both gowns as they were pretty much the same. I tried the 4418 on and loved it but it was such a larger size it was really hard to full get the effect that the first one I tried on gave me. After weighing my pros and cons and what I felt about each dress I decided on purchasing the mori lee dress ( which then my grandma stepped in and paid for the whole thing, super sweet but crap this makes this harder) We’ll ever since that day I’ve had ALOT of what ifs and should i’s. I’ve sorta kept it to myself until I met up with one of my bridesmaids last night and pretty much blurted out everything I was feeling. I ended up coming home and breaking down crying to my fiancé that I’m so indecisive I want everything to be perfect and nothing over the last few months are going as planned, I kept all details to myself about the dresses, but I just needed to talk to him. I’m very stressed out over family issues and I just found out my work is closing so I’m out of a job as of February 28th. I think this is what has brought all my emotions to head and I’m finally letting it out, I absolutely love both dresses but I’ve said to my fiance that it’s like choosing what car to buy, a Chevy or a ford ( random example ) they are both very different in their own ways. I don’t know what I’m looking for from the bees, I don’t know what I can do. I want to go try my dress on ( which has arrived ) and the other dress this weekend for reassurance but I don’t know if that’s a good idea. I never thought this decision would end up being this hard….. Someone please give me advice. 🙁 FML
