- Wedding: September 2013
So my first mistake of my wedding, I am sure there will be plenty more, is that I wanted to buy a dress as early as possible because I know that the color of the dress determines alot of other things, like the grooms shirt color, the icing color on the cake, and the type of accessories that I will need as well. I went to a number of bridal stores and never really got that “Oh my goodness, this is my dress” feeling. I was really hoping that I would too. I went to this woman’s house who use to own a huge bridal store here in the city, but she got sick and was selling off her stock. I found a beautiful gown. It was elegant, had spakles, fit me well, and I was happy….not over joyed but happy and that was a big change from feeling nothing with all the other gowns. So I bought the dress.
I had buyers remorse within 24 hours and I was besides myself with guilt for spending money on something I could not return and more than that…still not having a dress that I loved.
So I let myself sit on it for awhile, hoping that I would change my mind. Well, I did not. So now I have a dress that I don’t want to wear on my wedding, hanging on my office door, new with tags, and I have a huge chunk of my wedding budget down the drain.
Not happy to say the least. So I am trying to sell my dress. I put it on craigslist and on here hoping beyond hope that someone else falls in love with the dress that I now own.
Making matters worse, I have probably tried on about 50 different dresses at this point and still don’t have a dress that I love to pieces. There is one that I like and made me smile, but I am waiting and making sure that I really like it before purchasing it and making the same mistake twice. The plus side is even a week later, I still smile when I think of the dress that I found that made me smile. The future Mr. Day really likes it as well so that is a big plus.
The other plus is that Mr. Day is being very supportive over the whole matter. He understands that I made a mistake and jumped the gun and he is being so kind about it. He just wants me to find a dress that I really love and is willing to drive me to any store in the state in order to do so, which is beyond kind, since I know he is not a huge fan of wedding dress shopping, and at this point I am not a huge fan either.
So here is hoping that I can sell the dress that I have now and find another one that I really love and want to wear on my wedding day…
