So I had a verrrrry emotional day today! I actually had dress regret hard core, because I knew I had other dresses to see this Saturday coming up at another salon.
Let me start by saying I can’t believe how I reacted when I tried on “THE ONE”. I was sooooooo happy and everyone was crying and ahhhh. I felt like I was gonna faint, I was hot and sweaty, I chugged down 3 glasses of water…it was nutzo!
The customer service at Wedding Atelier were awesome! Gwynne, my consultant who used to work for Kleinfeld, was amazing. She was so attentitive and wanted ME to be happy, not her quota!
I knew this place was amazing, because all of the ladies working yesterday, had all eyes on ME! They couldn’t stop gawking and helping and showing me things and making me feel like a princess. They were leaned over the reception desk just watching me try on gown after gown on a busy Saturday. They made me feel so special!
I had originally went in wanting to only try on Hayley Paige and bla bla and a mind set that I was only playing dress up today and would come back after Long Island at Bridal Reflections..
Well #1, was amazing , number 2 and 3 were….bleh….#4, well number four was amazing…everyone couldn’t stop crying and smiling and I wanted to faint!
I flashed forward to our wedding day, walking down the asile, and then flashed to dancing in the reception hall.
This was it!!
After veil changes and bolero try ons and an add on belt, I was sold…but still felt I needed to make sure.
I then tried on the 2 hayley paiges…Harper was out, and Bella was a big runner up….The open hole int he back was not as bad as it looks on the model, and the dress and bodice were gorgeous. But in the end I felt like the dress was wearing me.
So I said YES to the dress! Nicole Millers Spring 2012 line, the dress was 1 week old in their store. dress EO0009 Silk Faille Trumpet Gown with Seam Detail!
The model does not do it justice…
So last week I had showed the Fiance a list of dresses which none were anything like what I chose….but the thing is we both fell in love with Maggie Sottero Dynasty….he picked it out of a list of 7 dresses…I feel so sick to my stomach knowing I didn’t go try on that dress on Saturday before I made my decision!
I have never cried so hard…I was crying all today on a road trip back from Milford, ct after visiting FSIL’s new place and spending the night.
I even confronted Future Mother-In-Law, cried to her, and she understood and agreed that she is the SAME WAY…and had a feeling I would be that way!
I don’t know if I made the wrong choice still, what I do know is I love the dress…I just wish I tried on Dynasty.
Sorry if my post is all over the place….still a million thoughts in my head….
I will post the pics of me in THE DRESS…tonight!
Promise!! 🙂 Fiance is watching the soccer game…just haven’t had a chance with everything…..
He saw me crying in the car and when we got to his house, we went downstairs and we talked and I cried and we hugged and he kissed me like crazy and told me he loved me and that it’s just a dress and all he wants to do is marry me and he doesn’t care. He looked me straight in the eye, holding my shoulders…telling me that he just can’t wait to marry me!
I feel so stupid for being all emotional about a dress…I don’t usually care about clothes like that to an extent…but this one day means everything to me!
