- Wedding: March 2014
So this isn’t “dress regret” or anything, it’s not a dire emergency… I just am not sure this is really working on me.
I don’t know whether it’s wedding planning fatigue, or just general stress (we have a lot of things going on in the next few months – birthdays, xmas, construction, moving, wedding, showers, etc.), or what… but I tried on my dress yesterday and wasn’t too happy with the way it looked and felt.
The dress isn’t very flattering on me. Or at least I feel like that sometimes. Other times I just love the way it looks on me.
But I hate the way it makes my waist look. It makes it look both wide and wrinkle-y, which is frustrating. The wrinkles don’t smooth out – I think I have a short torso so it’s not working right.
I tried it on with the petticoat for the first time and it just felt like I was wearing a cheap costume… don’t know if getting the petti was the right choice.
I wanted the shoes so badly, but I feel like they maybe don’t really “go” with the dress… the photos are dark, but the shoes are teal.
I don’t know. Some positive words would be nice.
I think I am just very over the whole wedding planning fuss and maybe the dress is fine.
But I also wonder if I should really find a more flattering dress.
But then I also want to be comfortable, which is why I like my dress – I don’t need help getting into it or anything, and I hate shopping which is going to stress me out way more than I can even realize right now.
Opinions? Suggestions? Advice?
I think I’m having a bad “lately” and trying on my dress REALLY bummed me out.
This is the dress with the petticoat, the shoes, the veil.
I’m not wearing makeup and didn’t do my hair or anything.
Please ignore the dryer sheet on the floor I don’t know why they pop up all over my bedroom.
This is the dress a few months ago, with different (taller) shoes, no petticoat, a stand-in veil, and I had a nice summer tan so I was in a better mood I guess.
Anyone? I know this dress isn’t most people’s cup of tea (but that’s OK by me), I think I just need a pick-me-up.
