- Wedding: June 2013
Ok, so, here it is 4am, and clearly I should be sleeping, but first I need to vent…. I’m getting so downhearted about it…
My wedding is in about 9 months, I’ve been looking for dresses for about 4 months…with no success. I’ve been to multiple shops, multiple trunk shows, tried on all sorts of different kinds of dresses.
And NOTHING is leaving me with that “yes, this is MY dress, this is PERFECT, yada, yada, tears well up, etc etc etc”
Don’t get me wrong, they are all pretty dresses (and some not so pretty) but overall I’m just left feeling underwhelmed. Like, they are pretty, but so what? Pretty dresses are a dime a dozen, but my wedding dress should be amazing… I guess I’m despairing of ever finding a dress that is A) me, B) special, C) fits my venue/reception and D) isn’t ridiculously overpriced for what it is. Oh and that E) my mom likes too.
Its getting to the point that I’m dreading going dress shopping because I’m sick of trying on dresses that just don’t do it for me, but I’m forcing myself to go anyway, because I won’t find a dress by not going. It seems like most girls here find their dress after 2-3 dress shopping trips and after trying on like 5-7 gowns. Whereas I’ve tried on over 50 dresses and still have not found “the one”. I have a top contender, but I’m almost afraid to go try her on again, for fear that she won’t look/feel the same as before (like all the others), and I’ll be completely back at square one again.
Is anyone else here having the same problem or have had it? How did you keep on trucking with the dress shopping, what kept you motivated to keep trying on dresses? How many dresses did you have to try on before you finally found “the one”? Did you finally have that eureka “the one!” moment or did you finally just decide on one that you like the most and called it a day?
