- Wedding: June 2013
Hi everyone – I’m new and relieved to have found this website! I went dress shopping last Sunday for the first time at Demetrios at Macy’s and was surprised to found a number of dresses I liked. I especially liked two which are very different from each other. The one feels very traditional, with a dropped waist (a Basque waist, I think) and lots of embroidery on silk. I felt it was really flatteringl but somewhat wintery for a June 29 wedding (ceremony hopefully outdoors). The other is sort of Grecian goddessy. I’ve put a picture below, but it felt different on me than it looks on the model. They callled and offered a deal, but we had to decide right away, so I went ahead and got the Greek one. I haven’t been measured yet (we ordered it over the phone) and I feel like I could probably get out of it, but on the other hand I felt beautiful in it. I’m worried that I’ve only tried on dresses at Macy’s and David’s Bridal (I think there was less boning in the dresses and/or I was not having a pretty day, but I didn’t find anything I felt remotely good in there). So, first, is this dress something I might regret in pictures 10 years from now? Second, does anyone know anything about Cosmobella dresses (a line at Demetrios)? Would I find even more boning, and thus even more help to looking especially good, in other, comparably priced dresses (about $1500)? THANK YOU – I didn’t think I would take everything quite this seriously (I’m 36 and thought I’d be more laid back), but I haven’t slept well for the last two nights and am too anxious to sleep now!
