- Wedding: September 2012
So I reslly do love my wedding dress. It’s a beautiful all over lace fit and flare dress from the Vinyad Collection (from the now gone Pricilla of Boston, sad day). BUT I bought it a meer 2 weeks after getting enaged because I found out Pricilla of Bostom was going out of business and they carried many of the dresses that I loved (that were in my price range) and I felt like I had to go and look or I’d regret it.
I did find my dress and it was one I had coveted for almost a year and it was 60% off!!. BUT I feel like I missed out on the “expereince.” I had a rag tag grouo with me (a couple of friends, but not my mother or maid of honor). i walked into the store, pulled my own dresses (which the control freak in me liked, and allowed me to try on tons of dresses I might not have been allowed to otherwise), I was in and out in 2.5 hours, put my dress in the back seat and took it to the cleaners. I just always thought I’d be looking for a week or two and that my mother, grand mother and Maid/Matron of Honor would have been with me. I also walked in the store not really thinking I was going to find something, so I had a dress before I had anything else, I was still not really “feeling enagged” because it had only been 2 weeks and I was still soaking it in (it took me like a month before I felt like I wasn’t lieing when I said I was enaged, lol!).
So I’m just feeling like while I got a great deal on the dress I always imagined wearing I can’t help but feel like I missed out on an expereince….
