So the boy and I decided to have a long engagement for two reasons:
- We got engaged this past Christmas and REALLY wanted to get married in the spring. Spring 2010 wouldn’t give us enough time to plan, so spring 2011 it is.
- We need the time to save as much money as possible.
It’s all well and good, but the downfall is that that give us (well, let’s be honest, me) plenty of time to make decisons and then second-guess them. And third-guess them, etc. I mean, I’m the type of person who, two months before any dressy event, buys a dress. Then, a few weeks later, sees another one I like better so I buy that one. Then, I find a pair of shoes I like better and buy those. By the time the event rolls around, I’ve got a crap ton of dresses in my closet that I’ll never wear. I’m just indecisive and fickle that way.
So. The wedding is 15 months away. And guess what I did today?
I bought a dress.
When I was at David’s a few weeks ago to try on dresses, my mom found a really cute ivory dress in their prom section. I thought it was adorable, but after trying on about 12 dresses and falling in love with this one from Galina. I didn’t feel like trying on the prom dress.
But I’ve kind of been having second thoughts about the Galina. It’s beautiful and flattering, but I think it’s just too much dress for our simple, rustic garden wedding. So today, I was running errands and drove by David’s and I decided to pop on in and try on the prom dress.
And I loved it. AND, it was only $189! AND, I noticed a tiny, barely noticeable little smudge on it and asked if they’d give me a discount and they did, so it was even less! AND, as soon as I got home, the smudge came right out with a tiny bit of soap and water.
I know that I’ll probably fall in love with a whole bunch of other dresses. But this one is so cute and so affordable and fits in so well with our wedding. It’s more comfortable than the Galina and I won’t need a bridesmaid to hold it up while I pee. It’s just more ME.
But I know that I’ll end up finding like 10 more dresses I like before the wedding.
Anyhoo, here’s the dress. I’ll be swapping out the black sash for something else. What do you think?
