- Wedding: May 2013
Okay, this migh be long and/or convoluted…but bare with me…
Some of you know, I started out this dress thing wanting something simple, something non bridal and unique….but I couldn’t find anything that fit the bill that I loved. Then I found a more traditional wedding dress that I did love….
Maggie’s Karena Royale. And I think it looks pretty great on me in this picture…..I was still a little on the fence about getting this type of dress, because I thought it was “too much” for my age, the casualness of my wedding, etc…so I kept looking.
Then I found this:
Which I thought was amazing. So I searched the world over for it. Nordstroms has it on order for me to come try on some time next week.
But in the meantime I tried on this Casablanca 1847…
And I fell in love. I even muttered the words “This is it!” And my mother said the same thing. And if you zoom in, you can see my 5 year old niece’s face in the mirror reflection when she saw me come out in it. She was smiling so big and kicking her feet. 🙂 (She said it went with my eyes. haha)
I even went out and bought shoes….I was sold. I was going to forego even trying on the gold dress. (even though I think it’s super awesome)
But then I came back this morning, looking at the pics of me in the two dresses that I HAVE tried on. I think because the Maggie looks like it fits so well, and the Casablanca is obviously WAY too tight, and it’s at a horrible angle…(my mother said in person it didn’t look like the lace pattern was outlining my butt cheeks), it’s skewing my opinion. That plus the FI had already seen a stock pic of the Maggie and said he liked it..but said “I normally don’t like patterns (he means the lace) but since this one is a solid pattern, it’s okay.” whatever that means. So I’m also worried that he’ll not like the lace pattern on the Casa. But I think it’s gorgeous, that and in person I thought the casa was more flattering overall.
Please tell me I’m not the only freaky undecisive mofo around here? How do you make a decision? What’s the deciding factor? Which dress would YOU pick? GAH! I’m driving my own self crazy…
If you’ve hung in this long with my craziness, I owe you a drink. Or an ice cream cone. Thanks bees!
