- Wedding: November 2014 - 11/15/14-Vineyard
Ok, so I think I have clearly lost my mind!! So the champagne and lace dress came in and I had not had a chance to try it on. Keep in mind I have not had anyone go dress shopping with me as they live too far away.
So my sister in laws wanted us to have a get together day and catch up with me on wedding talk. We get there and I told them I had not tried on my dress yet since it arrived, nor the veil and I brought them with me. So I tried it on for them and they loved it but after I showed them all those pics, they agreed they loved that chiffon one as well and wanted to know if they can go with me to try it on and see it in person. Called David’s Bridal and they graciously fit me in and when I came out they both got really emotional.
Sooo…I can’t even believe I did this. I’m changing my dress..again. I was still in the time frame of returning the other, so when that credit comes through, I’m going to order the ivory chiffon dress. I’m shaking my head in disbelief myself. I do feel soooo much more comfortable and beautiful in that dress. It’s so flowy and sparkly.
Then my sister in law to be asked me about hair and makeup. After disappointment from 2 different hair and makeup trials with different people, I was going to just do it myself somehow. She has a friend that does it and she offered a trial and if I like it it will be her present to me. I broke down crying.
Although we are older (46), we have not had anyone offer any help at all with the wedding and her offer just overwhelmed me, as I’ve been trying to do it all on my own. She is so kind and generous. So now, I’m going Saturday to do a hair and makeup trial.
Now I have to figure out new jewelry, too. Yikes.
