I went shopping on the 17th (my birthday) with my Maid/Matron of Honor. I liked the shop and I found a dress I really liked. But I could not say YES and put the money down. We are going back in Jan to look at dresses for my girls. I plan to buy it then, but my stomach is in total knots. I know that part of the reason is the Mom and Gram have not seen it yet. Despite their somewhat lack of interest, I want them to see it first. I showed them pictures, they liked it and said they would check it out with me. It was also WAY under budget (GO ME!)!!! My Future Mother-In-Law fell inlove with the dress (we are close). Her reaction was hesitant but when she saw it, and heard her voice I felt much better. Why is this so hard? Saying yes was easy. I am divorced and my first wedding was good but a slight whirlwind after getting pregnant and everyone freaking out and moving stuff up by 11 months. Is that what is wrong with me? Gun shy? I can’t imagine life without Fiance. We just hit 5 years and it only feels like 2. We went to London last week and I got my hair piece at Harrods!!! LOVE IT!!! I showed the women the dress like it was mine. I know it is my dress, it is perfect. But putting my money where my mouth is, proves to be hard. Am I the only one?

Honestly in my opinion you have a nice figure and even though this dress is nice I think you could find one in nudget or possibly under that suits your figure more and shows curves without showing too much like I would be looking for with mine.

I was the same to some extent. It was actually more difficult for me to say “yes” to the dress because I was being too picky and was not ready to commit. Once I found “the dress”, I slept on it for one night and couldn’t stop talking about it. Like you, I was acting like it was already my dress. My fiance knew that I was in love with the dress, and drove me to the boutique the day after I tried it on and I bought it.
The only thing that has bothered me about “putting my money where my mouth is” and buying the dress, is my silly fiance saying, “Imagine all the outfits you could have bought for that amount of money?” Gah! Men say the silliest things sometimes lol.

You look beautiful! Sounds like you’re just nervous, which is totally normal! 🙂

I am having the same problem! I’ve been to try on “the dress” on FOUR different occasions. My mom and I had plans today to go out and BUY IT! ….but I cancelled.
When I’m wearing it, I feel like it’s probably the one. When I get home, I realize that yes, it’s 95% the one. Then a few weeks pass and I look at all the pics of me in it….I’m “meh” about it. I just can’t commit, but I really don’t feel like going out to other stores and continuing to look. It always comes back to “that dress” as being the best of the lot, but I still feel so uncertain. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good.
Not much advice here, but I hear ya! Good luck. Maybe after your mom and grandma see it, you’ll be able to be more sure. 🙂

I went through the same thing… I had been to 4 salons in 3 days, tried on over 30 dresses, and thought I found the one, because it had everything I thought i wanted. We ordered it and as soon as I got out of the salon I freaked out, put it on hold, slept on it, (of course the next day the salon was closed!) and after horrible anxiety for 3 days was finally able to get it cancelled with a credit. Went back to the salon a couple weeks later and found one that I loved, which was completely different from the first. Went from a lace mermaid to a taffeta ballgown with pockets :). I slept on it for a couple weeks feeling 99% sure, and went I went back I didn’t let myself talk myself out of it. It still makes me nervous that we ordered it, but I know I love the dress so I have to relax! Same for you. 🙂 The dress looks great, if you love it – get it. If there are things you want to change about it – then don’t. That was my problem with the first one, I wanted to change things on it and still ordered it, and now I hate it! Sooo glad I canceled!
