- Wedding: July 2013
I’ve had a very difficult time finding a dress for my wedding and have tried on tons and tons of them. Some of them I liked but never really got “the feeling” that everyone talks about. I’m on a bit of a budget and was able to find a secondhand dress (allure 8862) for a ridiculously good price that would need a few alterations (mainly length and bust area). This is the first dress I tried on where I felt like a bride… I didnt cry or anything but i looked into the mirror and thought “hmm i could see this working” Its comfortable, flowy and easy to move/dance in. BUT its not what i originally thought I’d like…I thought I wanted a more form fittting mermaid style dress. I decided that it was the one I wanted to go with and got really excited but when I sent it to my mom she wasn’t really excited but said she liked it just pictured me in something different and Future Mother-In-Law just said it wasn’t flattering, didn’t fit my body type, the ruffles were “way too much” and it makes me look like a child in a big girl dress….YIKES….of course now im defintiely second guessing myself. I do look young for my age and now im worried that what she is saying is true and its just the reality of it….what do you hoenstly think?
