Hey all! I’m facing some anxiety post-saying yes to a dress I truly love and to be honest some of it is my own issue and some of it is coming from my mother.
I tried on a ton of dresses over the past month, and ended up loving designers Pronovias and Martina Liana.
Pronovias had been my number one for awhile until I found Martina Liana gowns, and I have ended up purchasing a ML gown – The 744 style. I had also really loved Pronovias’ Princia gown.
I still love my ML pick. I don’t know how normal it is to get anxious when you decide or to be super indecisive even after you purchased the dress.
My pros and cons for the dresses (also adding images of me in them).
Martina – gorgeous Pearl strap detail, long lovely train, sample size 10 in store fit me perfect and I loved how my body looked. I remember my friend saying I looked like a goddess and it was a great vibe for my beach wedding in Cali.
No major cons here except I worry it’s too “modern” bc of the sexy details like the low back or semi-deep cut in front, or that it’s less traditional? I can’t put my finger on it but that keeps popping up in my mind.
Funny story is that the morning of getting the dress – I found images of a friend’s cousin in it and it’s insanely gorgeous in pics. ALSO got a discount the day I got it bc I didn’t realize they had a trunk show.
Price was 2000 and I’m getting for 1800.
Pronovias – Beautiful lace and train, lovely in Ivory color, romantic vibe. Gives me a more traditional romantic look, love the little lace details and feel good in a strapless.
Cons to me are the back wasn’t as low as I’d like. Noticed deeper backs or V-shaped backs made me look better. Also didn’t feel as confident in this as the ML dress. Granted the dress I tried on wasn’t close to my size so it had to be tightened, but even walking around in videos I don’t feel that same beautiful and dare I say sexy feeling I get from the ML dress.
My biggest fears now are that I somehow should have gone for the other dress but I’ve already paid half for ML… and even if I did go for the pronovias, I’d probably be freaking out about it bc I’ve been very indecisive.
Haha any thoughts or advice to end this nervousness are welcomed!
