- Wedding: May 2013
So, this is my first post, but I’ve been stalking this sight for a good 6 months. My wedding is in about 100 days and I’m having a bit of dress regret.
I always wanted a short, tulle dress. I tried on several when I first started shopping and honestly felt like a fairy frickin’ princess, which I assure you, I never wanted to feel like, but it was just that awesome ‘your the one’ dress. Of course, this wonderful dress was not in my budget, so I had to let it go.
Fastforward to a conversation with my grandmother, also my best friend. She wanted me to wear a long dress, with straps. Originally I was just going to have a city hall wedding, but she was insisting on a church. Whatever, I love my gram and respect her, my Fiance wanted a big wedding, so we decided to do it. He also wanted a long dress. Also, fine.
So I bought this dress (PIC BELOW) off the rack for $99 at a local shop. Way within my budget and I like it. And get this, after I bought it, and called my gram to discribe it, she dies the next day.
I know… Worst thing ever probably, in my entire life.
So with 100 days to go, I’m looking at these pictures and I’m getting a little worried. I got the dress my gram wanted me to get so I feel like she’s approved of it. A dress that, being so cheap, I got to use money in other places and a dress that my Fiance always assumed his bride would wear (long)…
But I can’t stop myself from thinking of my silly, fairy princess dress… What’s a bee to do? I feel like two dresses is an extravagance I don’t need, but at the same time, I’d love a short dress, one that’s more me, one I’ve always pictured. I’m just not sure if I should get a second dress. Thoughts?
