I went through that. It was a long process. I went through different stages:

1st – I tried to do a compromise by thinking up alterations that might please her. Turned out, it wasn’t enough.

2nd – When she was not happy with the compromise, I tried on other dresses that both she and I liked, but even though I liked those choices, they didn’t make me feel the same way as the dress I wanted did.

3rd – She saw how frustrated I was getting in looking for a dress that falls under the criteria that she would like, but that I would love. She said I need to stop looking. And I came clean and told her what I really wanted was what she hated, not disiiked, but hated. 

In the end, she said that it is my choice, I will be paying for it and I will be the one to wear it. So she has conceded, and she even said not to do the alterations I was thinking about. She’s still not thrilled about the dress, but I’ve realized that in the end it’s going to be my dress.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still wondering if there is a dress out there that we would both love. I’m still not fully happy with my decision, because ever since I was a kid I’ve always believed and seen in my case that “Mom knows best”. But, I have to bite the bullet and accept the decision as my own. Part of being an adult I guess. 🙂

I don’t know if this helped. I suggest that since you still have plenty of time, hold off on any rash decisions. You still have a lot of time and new collections will come out. Maybe, next year, a dress will come out that will be THE dress for the both of you. 🙂 Good luck!
