when i went to david’s bridal, the wedding attendant was very pushy and scary, trying to fit me in whatever dress she could find. ones that didn’t fit my criteria, ones that made me look like princess amidala, ones that made me look really, really stiff… you know, with the “OH THAT DRESS IS SO YOU!” kinda pillowtalk.

i eventually got tired of it (after 2 hours of playing barbie! jeebus) and left.

then i went to the bloomingdales down the street and got the dress i tried on first. it was comfy enough, and pretty enough 🙂

Oh my lord. This was me. Totally. It took me 7 months to find a dress. It was too much pressure for me. Between the salespeople, my mother, my family, etc,, dress shopping drove me nuts. I had the same experience with a sales lady here. She asked what I wanted and didn’t want, but didnt listen to a word I said! She pulled dresses that had all the criteria I hated. I walked out of that store in disgust. I was set on not buying anything there just because the saleslady had been such a hassle.

You have to try to block out everyone’s opinions. My mom and sisters all have different taste. It really comes down to the dress I feel great in. And no, I didnt have that moment where I put it on and started crying and giggling. Youre totally normal!!

It was soooo stressful for me.  I am still a bit shell shocked by the experience.  I never had THE moment, no tears, nothing.  Some days I’m like, “its just a dress”, other days I’m like, “Omg, did I pick the right dress, this is so important!”.  I think the entire wedding day and the industry surrounding it makes a lot of us go a lil nutty about this stuff 🙂
