So I am not “officially” engaged yet..as the ring is still being designed however everyone pretty much knows about it…so yeah. I’ve been previously married–it was very messy and I honestly thought I’d never do it again. My ex husband and my fiance are like…night and day it’s ridiculous.
Anyway, the first time I went dress shopping with my mother–she got kicked out of David’s Bridal because she gave me a panic attack. Not. Even. Kidding. My mother is a control freak and she can’t stand not being able to control me so instead she gets her kicks telling me how awful I look in dresses I like. We went dress shopping a few days ago and it was absolutely mind numbing. My mother and the sales associate were like two peas in a pod. We went to the largest bridal store near us and I didn’t see one thing I liked, whereas the first time around…I saw so many I liked.
The only reason I agree to go with her is because my Vavo (grandmother) guilted me into it…and while I’m not close with my mother, I’m very close with her. Oh and no I wouldn’t go dress shopping with Vavo. I love her but she’d pick the most revealing dress off the rack and make my cleavage pop out more.
ANYWAY!! I want to go back to the bridal store with more of a direction this time. I have a few dresses that I saw that I liked part of, but not the whole thing. Maybe if I post a few of my likes…you bees can post a few more I like?? I am a curvy girl, so I need some kind of wide straps or cap sleeves. I love love lace, I’m not into a lot of sequins. I don’t like fit and flares, though the softer shaped ones are fine (Idk if that made any sense). I seem to like ball gowns and what I call soft fit and flares….which the bridal consultant told me were “shaped” a-lines I think (she spoke mainly Portuguese and I’m a bad translator).
That would be awesome. Thanks bees!!
