- Wedding: August 2011
So this past Thursday I was able to go back to where I found my dress, and play with accessories in attempt to find the finishing pieces for my wedding day look. I was excited also as the gal that had helped me out before, was to be there and as it turned out, she ended up not being working that day.
When I got there, the sample of my dress….wasnt there. I suppose in one way, this was good, as slightly scared that I was going to put my dress back on, and hate it. So I guess that fear was avoided, er prolonged anyway. They claim the dress was taken out to be cleaned and the cleaner didnt get it back to them in time. I found this to be pretty irritating, but I wasnt going to do myself any favors by pitching a fit on the spot.
Then we moved onto veils, which I was looking for birdcage, and as it turned out, they had very minimal options. This was frustrating as how could I truly sort out what I wanted, when I couldnt actually see what I was to look like?
I then moved on to hair accessories, earrings, necklaces, & bracelets, only to feel Eh, about all of them for the most part. The kicker to me of all, were the prices! The irony is, I actually work in the jewelry industry and even I was taken back by what I am starting to refer to as, the wedding tax. I know what the jewelry there was made of, and the cost to make it, and the overage that they were charging was INSANE. I am a designer girl and even I was taken back!
In the end I didnt get anything and am no further along. I should say I do know what I am looking for, I just need to find it. I am just left feeling let down with the whole experience. I was expecting another high point on the road to the wedding experience and instead came off feeling cold and dissappointed.
Hopefully when my dress comes in, this experience picks back up again, and God I hope I do indeed love my dress like I did in July, haha! Anyone else go through this?
