I’m feeling so overwhelmed and emotional today…my wedding is in September, so I still have over 4 months but it feels like nothing is going right. I ordered 2 dresses online and the first one came, and it was stunning, but about 10 sizes smaller than I ordered, seriously, I needed 2 stitched together to get around me.
The second dress came, and it’s a completely different style dress. I ordered them from China and I’m finding the email discussions difficult because of the language differences and I’m worried I’m running out of time.
I ordered my shoes (Jimmy Choos) and when they came I didn’t like them on me and burst into tears. Thankfully, those I ordered from Saks and their returns policy is amazing so I can get my money back.
To top it off my oldest friend who was flying from overseas to be my Maid/Matron of Honor (i was hers) has just found out she is pregnant so won’t make it to the wedding.
I know this sounds like a whingefest, but I just feel like nothing is going right at the moment! I’ve put on weight when I am supposed to be losing it and I’m just feeling so yucky!
Is it normal to feel like this??

Yes! I have a strapless dress and have purchased 6 different boleros and wraps. Not happy with any of them. Now I’m seeing armpit fat when I put the dress on.
I think our minds start playing tricks on us…
Is there a store you can go into to purchase a dress? I think having a dress for sure would make you feel a lot better.

@aussiebee: Aww! That all sucks. Try to keep your chin up and focus on the positives that have happened so far.

This doesn’t sound like a whinefest! *hugs*!!! Just know that it will all work out in the end, I know, I planned one too. About your friend, I’m sorry to hear that. My best friend also lives in another country and I was able to be at her wedding but she couldn’t be at mine. It really sucks. But maybe you could Skype?

@GroovyHippieChick: My shoes had too much toe cleavage and the second dress the straps looked grey, I just want to look nice for my FI!

@star_dust: It does suck doesn’t it! I went over a year before her wedding and for the wedding. We’ve been best friends since we were 4 years old and although I moved to Australia we remained friends. I’m so happy for her that she is pregnant, but at the same time it’s hard trying to imagine my wedding without her in it. I know it will still be amazing because at the end of the day I’m marrying my love. Skype is a good idea 🙂 xx
