- Wedding: April 2012
I’m new to the boards, but I feeling like I need some support right now. I just purchased my dress a week ago, and I’m already in full panic about it being the wrong dress. I just don’t feel excited about it. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
Here’s a picture:
I went to 5 stores and tried on tons of dresses, but I never had that “YES” moment. My mom and a few bridesmaids joined me for the last 2 stores, and I found the dress I bought with them. Although I never felt emotional my mom and one of my bridesmaids got teared up when I put this gown on. It felt bridal, and pretty and I just went for it.
When I started looking for dresses I wanted classic, and timeless. I love Christos gowns and A-line dresses with sashes. I’m not a big sparkle girl and I don’t wear much jewelry — I never thought I would have ANY beading on my wedding dress. Of course, I bought a dress with a ton of sparkle and beading at the waist.
It’s a beautiful Kenneth Pool gown, and I know I’m so lucky to have such a gorgeous dress, but I can’t help thinking it’s not me… all of that sparkle at the waist, and the plunging sweetheart. I’m afraid it’s not as classic as I had hoped for.
I’ve been searching the web for pictures of a “real” bride wearing the same dress — I can’t find one anywhere. Did anyone else wear Kenneth Pool Amour?? I would love to see pictures of real brides wearing this dress, or maybe just to hear other people’s thoughts on the beaded waist and plunging sweetheart.
