My wedding is about 6 months away, super excited! but i found myself in a nother dilemma…im terrify of trying on a wedding dress. I am terrify i think the fact that it will become so real the fact that i am getting married. I am nervous and anxious and its not about not finding the “one” but its more about really allowing myself to see that i am getting married!! A lot of brides have that moment where they really see themselves that this is it! Dont get me wrong i am not double guessing my decision at all, i have been with my Fiance for 9 years and i love him dearly! But i am just afraid to finally realize that what i wanted for so long is finally here. Any ladies feel the same?! i know it probably sounds weird lol but i have been delaying wedding dress shopping for the past three weeks and my mom keeps telling me that we should do it soon. How can i overcome my anxiety and all these emotions!!!

@butterfly1988: After your first time at one bridal salon you will calm down. Trust me, I LOVE to shop but I hated the dress shopping part but after my first time the others werent so bad. Where are you going? I see you are in NY and I went to lots of places in NYC and NJ.
ETA: I just saw that your wedding is in SIX MONTHS?!? Why did you wait? Because of your anxiety?

Thanks for the response! My wedding is in June, I got engaged in Novemeber and the holidays took over practically the whole month of December for us! But yes part is because we were thinking of eloping and also i wanted to just focus on been engaged for a bit before planning! We will be booking the venue probably next week. It will be a small wedding of possibly 30 to 50 people. But i think anxiety maybe one reason too…dont know how to overcome that!

You aren’t 6 months off, you are only 5 months and 3 days off!!! Get your butt to the nearest bridal salon :p you’re cutting it really close and I’m sorry to tell you but most dresses take 6-8 (or more) months to order. So some salons may be a little rude to you. They were to me when I went the other week 🙁 DB might be a better bet for getting a dress faster. Or perhaps finding a dress of the rack? But do it soon so you can find a dress you love 🙂
i totally understand the nervousness and anxiety of dress shopping. I’ve been there! And its totally okay not to have the “THE dress” moment. It doesn’t happen for everyone. My advice to to take 1 or 2 people who’s option you trust and who you feel relaxed around to come with you. And if you don’t find a dress the first time, that’s totally okay 🙂

I know exactly how you feel, my worries were more about the cellebrant than the dress shopping though. I’ve been with my fiance for 5 years and waiting for him to propose about 4 of those. Haha. It’s what I’ve wanted all along but when you anticipate it for so long it’s a bit overwhelming when it all happens! Our first meeting with the cellebrant she suggested some readings we could have and I was nearly in tears most of the way through it. Luckily our cellebrant is really sweet…she looked at me and grinned and said “someone just realised she’s actually getting married!” It’s all fallen into place since then cause I know A it’s really happening (finally) and B we waited until we were completely ready so there’s nothing to be anxious about.

@Quickiebee: I wish there was a “Love” button for that statement, it made me giggle! I know the feeling, if drinking had the standard effect on me, I probably would have too!

5 months out and you have no dress, get going girl or all you will have to chose will be samples and being anxious about dress shopping will be the least of your worries-suck it up and get going- you’re dress is calling
