Yeah, I was in a similar boat – we were originally planning on getting married November next year, then figured we’d never organise it because it was too far away, so moved it up to April 13th instead (eek!). Dress shopping has been fun, but it helps having the wedding so soon, because the salespeople are more willing to sell you the sample in the store because they’re not sure they’ll get a dress ordered on time 🙂

If you’re not really happy with the dress your family loved, keep looking! If you’re not comfortable in it on the day, it will be noticeable. Put this one on the maybe pile, and check out some others. For what it’s worth, I think it looks lovely on you, but if it’s not your cup of tea, then no amount of looking at photos is going to change your mind.

It can be really overwhelming and emotional at the store, so it’s no wonder you teared up. If you don’t feel it now, don’t force it. Also, the consultants may try to scare you into buying a dress right away talking about alteration timelines; it’s bunk. You can always order the dress then find a reputable seamstress in the meantime. Your alterations can be done much more quickly this way. It’s still faster, sometimes, even if you buy off the rack and go straight into the alterations waiting list with the store. Just my experience in the past. Definitely check with that store for specifics for your stuff. Good luck!
