So excitingly I went to go see my dress for the first time since I bought it 6 months ago. On my way to the shop, my mom called and said she could not meet me because she had became very ill. I however did not get the VM till i was already in the store. Since i was so excited to see the dress and make sure it looked good, i decided just to keep the appointment. However, after putting the dress on, i am not that excited about it. I dont know if it was since my mom was not with me to go ooh and aahh, or if i really dont care for the dress any longer, or did i just not look good in it. ( also should say that i had just worked a 12 hour day and had barely any makeup on:) When i got home my FI asked how everything went and all i can say is good, i just dont have any feelings about it and truely wanted to have that magically feel to it, and now I just dont care. I know that there is nothing that i can really do about it now, just wanted to share my feelings with people who may understand.

Don’t worry, the magic is really in the moment and not in the piece of fabric itself. Not even the most gorgeous dress can make up for the stress having a long day at work and having your mom cancel last-minute. When you put it on surrounded by your best friends and family, and when you marry Fiance in it, you will have that magical feeling for sure 🙂

I think you were probably just concerned about your mother and that took away from the dress experience.
I hope she is feeling better.

GirlWithARing said it very well – – nothing will compare to the day you get to wear it in front of all your family and friends. You may have gone into the appt w/ high expectations and b/c those weren’t meant it resulted in sadness – – chin up girl, that dress will for sure bring you a ton of happiness 100%

GirlWithARing said it best – when you put it on the day of your wedding, nothing else compares to the feeling. I’m sure part of the reason had to do with the fact that your mom suddenly became ill and wasn’t able to be there with you. Don’t worry…the day of your wedding, you’ll feel like the dress was made for you!

Yeah, I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I just had my first fitting, and it was the first time that I saw MY dress – not a store sample. I love my dress, but I had absolutely no emotional reaction at my fitting (and my mom WAS there). Until your wedding day, it’s just another dress. =)

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I guess in the end of the day, it does not matter what i am walking in, just who i am walking to.
