Take a deeeeeeeep breath.

I hated planning my wedding.  I tried really, really hard to love planning. . .but I didn’t.  People kept telling me, “enjoy the planning, it will be over so fast and you’ll never get to do it again!”  Other friends getting married gushed over picking out cakes and flowers.  I just didn’t get it.  It was stressful and hard, and cost so much money, sometimes I had to settle for things I didn’t like as much, other things I wanted fell to the wayside.  I cried a lot, and complained to my husband a lot.  I even stopped posting on wedding bee for awhile because it stressed me out!


When the day came, it was awesome.  I finally said, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”.  I let everyone else do the worrying and just enjoyed myself.  The DIY projects I had wanted to do?  Didn’t cross my mind.  The rentals that weren’t as nice as I wished they could be?  Didn’t pay attention to them.  The ceremony and marriage that came out of it?  Everything I hoped they would be.  It will all work out in the end.  I think you should look into buying a dress off the rack somewhere.  I bought my dress from BCBG.  I was able to try it on and knew the quality I was getting.  I hope you have luck with returning your other dress.  It will work out!

I hope everything turns out okay for you!!! Return the dress and if you want something simple and inexpensive, they have beautiful white dresses at a few department stores such as Macy’s that I would adore at a backyard wedding! If you aren’t happy to do that, look at the classifieds on here and the knot, some women sell their dresses for fairly cheap. I’m sure your wedding will be great. Once you sort your dress out, maybe take a few days off planning and get your head together. Good luck!
