- Wedding: August 2012
My dress was available to try on so I went and put myself in it! I had only tried on the sample (which was way too big!) 7 months ago! They pinned it so it will look similar to this for the wedding. I think it’s a beautiful dress and I am really happy with my purchase, the only thing is that I am finding it hard to get around the fact that this is MY dress. Other than it being lace, it doesn’t look anything like what I thought I would wear for my wedding. But it was the style that I think suited me best out of everything that I tried on (that was in budget) and I liked the simplicity of it. I feel really good in the dress, and it is super comfy. I only start having doubts when I see the pictures. It looks really ‘traditional’ to me and I guess I thought I would go for something more fashion forward or dramatic. And I definitely didn’t want strapless! But I am really narrow on top (almost 2 sizes smaller than my hips) so dresses that had straps completely overwhelmed me.
Anyway, that’s my story bees! I was shaking I was so nervous and excited to try the dress on. Also, my mom has been ill so she hasn’t seen the dress (only this picture) in real life yet either. So I think that’s why I find it hard because I haven’t got her reassurance yet
I know a lot of you had or have the same feelings about your dresses, so thought I would share. I am really excited to get married now! Oh, and sorry about the silly pose, I was laughing at my friend at the time!
