- Wedding: July 2014
I realize ordering dresses online isnt for everyone, but im having a really hard time convincing a few of my Bridesmaid or Best Man to trust me with it. Im getting them done by jasmines for an amazing price. Theyll also be doing my dress. Growing up my mom always sewed my important dresses (christening, grads, prom etc) so theidea of committing to a dress without trying it on is not a far thought for me.
my bridesmaids however are concerned they havent tried them on and blah blah blah. i took them shopping though and they tried on many similar shapes. Theres also the possibility of alterations if it doesnt fit quite right. i just couldnt fathom them dishing out $200+ for a dress i didnt entirely like and i felt once they get these dresses they will realize how great they are and how silly they were being for putting up a fuss…. But how do i calm them down in the meantime?
The one im having the hardest time with had me pay $260 for a dress for her wedding that i told her flat out didnt work for me. $50 in alterations later it fit, but was not flattering. Did i say anything to her after the initial sample try on? Nope. Its her wedding. I just wanted to be there for her, whether i looked a hot mess or not. She unfortunately doesnt share the same attitude 🙁
this is the dress were doing. Its stunning, and simple and elegant, and i know jasmines will do a fabulous job.
