OMG. I am soo excited!! **I’ll tried to shorten it! It’s pretty long…**
I had my dream dress pass me by because it was out of MY budget. My Mother offered to pay for it, but I couldn’t justify spending 2300/5000 for it! I mean that can go to sooo many other things that are just better than a dress for one day. Yes, I’m aware of forever pictures/video, but still it wasn’t something for me. I wasn’t a dress girl either.
I also know its pennies for my families circle and it would be a conniption for some if I didn’t spend enough etc and so forth. I knew any other options would grant the long lectures of “your so and so spent 10k on hers. It’s normal etc.”
Since there was NOTHING like it within my budget, I decided to take the challenge and make my own. I loved the old romantic feeling it would give and who has the time, skills, etc to create one of their own? Not many would fuss and can easily purchase one.
It was right up my sleeve, such a great idea……
Well, well, well… When all was said and almost done. My Mother threw fits of “my daughter can’t make her own wedding dress! I won’t have it” (How can I put this? She was fed with a silver & golden spoon) I handled EVERYTHING the best I could and all the wedding details have come together quite nicely. I was almost done with 6wks cushion time. The dress looks beautiful and I’m soo happy with it! All that is needed is to finish my jacket. . hooray. Riiight?
I let my Mother intervene this time (I was feeling exhausted traveling throughout CA and thought it couldn’t hurt to look at lace jackets while I’m in L.A.. Plus the fact I never gave my Mother the chance to experience shopping for a dress with her daughter, I felt bad) So we went to shop and enjoy the day.
Before I knew it she purposefully took me to a place that had the very dress I wanted in the beginning!! WHAT? …My heart sunk a little….I had so many suspicions.. UGH.
I can’t believe it… I REALLY can’t believe it.
I need a shot on the rocks or something., I don’t know how it happened…
We bought the dress! It was a steal even to me (It seems too good to be true? Nothing is ever too good to be true …except finding my Soul-Mate!)
I’m freaking out (in a good way…) Although now I have a total of 3 dresses, WTHeck do I do now? LMHO
Has anyone else 360’d weeks before the wedding?!
