- Wedding: August 2014
So here is the background. I fell in love with a dress online when I wasn’t even looking for a dress, I just thought it was perfect. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so even though my wedding won’t be until august of 2014, I had to try it on. So i found out the few shops in the state that carry the designer and called all of them to see if they carried it. When I found out none of them do, I decided to go to the closest one and try on other dresses by the designer in hopes that I could order a sample to try on for $150 that a lot of designers do.
When I went into the shop I tried on other dresses, but nothing stood up to the dress that I was in love with. The styles similar to the dress looked good on me, but they were not ‘the one’. When I asked the manager if we could order the dress so I could try it on, she said she would call the designer right away. She came back 15 minutes later and gave me the bad news. Basically, the designer stopped sending samples other then in size 6, which isn’t my size at all, and they only send the white on white dress, so I couldn’t even really see my dress in person. The option was to put a down payment on a dress and have it sent out. The only problem was that it was a 2012 runway dress and that there was only one future production date, (DEC 26th) and that it was very possible being discontinued after that. So, I decided to put the down payment on the dress! The shop said that if I really didn’t like it, we would figure out a way to put my money towards another dress.
I find out today that they finished production on the dress early, and it arrived at the shop today! I am sooooo excited, but I am also scared because I have never tried it on! I have played around with the idea of trying it on by myself, because I would cry if I didn’t like the way it fit (besides the fact that I have already spent $1000 on it), but also, there are so many people I want to be there when I try it on, so that the moment will be perfect.
My mom lives out of state and will be here in three weeks and she of course wants to see it on me, should I wait to see it and try it on for when she gets here, or should I try it on by myself first?
