- Wedding: September 2011
I have been dress shopping for that “perfect” gown…I have 9 bridesmaids and of them, my maid of honor is currently serving in Iraq (my brave little sister), the rest just seem to be too busy to help in dress shopping, I have went on 2 different occasions now and have only gotten 2 of them to go with me…they didn’t seem too happy to be there at all. One girl waited to see my reaction and fed off of that with every dress, the other was preoccupied with her phone and a little girl that was in there trying on flower girl dresses(not for my wedding). I do not have a mother that I can take, my Maid/Matron of Honor is in Iraq and wont be back soon enough to help…I am seriously thinking about taking my Fiance shopping with me. I do NOT believe that him seeing the dress is a bad omen, I am not a supersticious person at all and in fact believe that he would be able to help me choose that “perfect” dress if it does exist…..thoughts??? Am I expecting too much from my bridesmaids? Should I not take him….I really want his reaction when I walk down the aisle to be that of complete happiness and I want him to look at me like all the other grooms look at their brides…do you think him seeing me in the dress prior to the wedding would change that? He and I are soul mates and I know that he adores me!! i think I really am the luckiest girl in the world…maybe we should just do a courthouse wedding, less hassle.
