- Wedding: December 2012
As some of you may know, I picked out my dress a couple weeks ago but that very night I was overwhelmed with regret so I ended up going back and even though I changed my sash and got a bigger size dress I am still thinking I picked the wrong one.
I didn’t get the feeling of “ooh wow…THIS is the one” or “OMG this is MY dress”.. and I just keep thinking that I’m going to regret my dress because I looked at the picture of me in it, I’ve seen pictures of other brides in it that are my size and I just don’t like how it looks in pictures…
I am sticking to David’s Bridal because I can pay on it monthly because we are doing a low budget wedding and I’m doing alot of it myself to cut cost. So I am thinking maybe my dress is the one thing I should splurge on to make me feel good.
So below I am posting the dresses I saw on their website that I did not try on and that I am seriously thinking about going back to see if they have in store.
I will also post the one I did buy (just not the pic of me in it..).
Dress #1 – Here is the one I did buy (that I feel is the wrong choice)
Dress #2 – It has the sash I ordered to go with dress #1, but I like how it’s fitted and just flares alittle at the bottom.
Dress # 3 – I like how it’s a sweetheart top and has alittle beading with the fabric swept to the side, and still alittle flowy at the bottom
Dress # 4 – Vera Wang (yea, expensive but I adore this dress sooo much), I love how its fitted and then goes into this fun bottom (that I personally think is my personality)
So after seeing all these, compared to what I have… what do you guys think? I don’t want to hear “oh its your day, pick what makes you happy” lol because I know its what I tell everyone else when I don’t want to seem rude about not liking their dress choices.
I talked to my MoH when we went back to DB, I asked her if she thought I made the right decision, she said she thought it was alittle plain (and fiance said the same comment when I showed him the pics of me in dresses although he does not know which one I picked). She also said “Plain and boring are words I would ever use to describe your personality” and I agree, I am a boring person at home but when I am with people I love to make them laugh and I like to be silly.
So I am scared that the choice I made is just too plain for me and I don’t want to look back at my wedding pictures and feel as if I went the safe route because I wanted to “look like a bride” instead of being ME as a bride..
