So I purchased this dress on a whim from Nordstrom:
My mom has been pretty disinterested in the whole wedding process and was very upset that I was planning on spending $1200 on a different unpictured dress. This was the only dress she had ANY opinion on which I think is part of why I bought it. It kept nagging me though and I had doubts and dress envy and just felt yucky about it.
BUT! I was still in the return period and I mailed it back this week and I already feel such a sense of relief that it is OUT OF MY CLOSET!!!! I have an appointment this weekend to try on more dresses with a girlfriend and I’m definitely NOT asking my mother’s opinion on any of them or telling her how much they cost.

You deserve to have the same bridal experience that everyone else gets, girl. <3 Kudos to you for not letting your mom ruin it for you.
Fingers crossed that you end up finding ‘the one’ this weekend!

I am sorry that you aren’t being supported by your Mom, perhaps she was just really surprised by what dresses cost these days. Don’t settle, take a trusted friend with you, set yourself a budget and really enjoy this experience. There are dresses in everyprice range. It’s out there somewhere, you deserve the joy of finding it. Positive karma for you this weekend…

@whammy: I will definitely post photos! I’m going back to revisit the dress I loved to see if it really is The Dress.
@dressme3: I think it’s about being practical. My mom doesn’t really believe in marriage anymore after several divorces so I’m sure she just doesn’t want me to spend a lot of money on a dress for one day. HOWEVER, unless I’m asking her to pay for it I just want to know if she likes it regardless of the cost.
