- Wedding: September 2010
I think I may just be going crazy. My wedding is in 3 months and now I am not sure I made the right decision with my dress. The dress I bought is a Marisa 839 and gorgeous, but I think I may love another dress more. Let me take you back to the begining. Originally, I had thought the Marisa dress was MY dress, that is until I tried on the Jim Hjelm style 8962 dress. I was pretty set on getting the jim hjelm dress and I brought my aunt with me. As soon as I came out, she made a funny face and shook her head. She didn’t think it was elegant enough and thought I should have a more sophisticated look. So I went with her suggestion and showed her the Marisa dress and she loved that dress and said it was perfect. She thought the Marisa dress showed off more of my curves and was classic and elegant, while the Jim Hjelm dress she thought was almost childish and “young”. So I bought the Marisa dress. Don’t get me wrong, at the time, I did love it and I thought I was making the right decision in going for a more classic, sophisticated look.
Then, 2 months later, I see the Jim Hjelm dress in a store window as I was driving by and I slowed down and stared at it to the point that the car behind me honked. Even at that time, I quickly dismissed my thought and reassured myself that the dress I bought was more beautiful. Then, last month, as I was browsing one of my fave websites, Style Me Pretty, I came across a wedding where the bride had the Jim Hlejm dress and that’s when I couldn’t deny it anymore and started to panic. I think I picked the wrong dress!!
So…what dress should I go with?? I’m completely torn. A part of me thinks that if my aunt hadn’t disapproved, I would have bought the Jim Hjelm dress. But a part of me also likes the classic, elegant look and understands what my aunt means.
What dress do you think I should go with? And if I do decide to get the other dress, what is the best way I should go about it? I’m not sure if the bridal salon will let me do an exchange; however, they may be willing to negotiate since I haven’t even picked up my dress yet and it hasn’t been touched. I am even willing to pay a restocking fee….
Sorry for the long post!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂
