- Wedding: April 2008
So, I went dress shopping very early in my planning at the request of my Maid/Matron of Honor who could not wait. I tried on about 20-25 dresses, and narrowed my choice down to 2, but decided to check out a couple more stores "just in case"…..I ended up finding a Casablanca gown, well two actually. But – did you know? Casablanca can pretty much customize a dress for you! Now, this is fantastic news, because I really didn’t want a straight strapless gown (I am a little big up top), but the first choice at this shop was just that. So, when they told me they would make that exact dress with the neckline I wanted, I was thrilled and ordered on the spot. The dress is now sweetheart neckline with straps. Really, it is a beautiful dress. But, I HATE IT! I hate the way it looks on me, and I think the straps I ADDED make it look less elegant or something. Overall, I am just not happy with it.
Has anyone seen their final dress and wish they didn’t get it? If so, what did you do? I feel like out of all the things I have spent money on for the wedding, the dress is the one thing I HAVE to be happy with….and now I only have six months to figure something out….should I just deal with it and hope I learn to like it, or find a new one?
