I feel like I should start out by explaining that I work at David’s Bridal and have 4 years, so I have seen A LOT of different styles, colors, designs, and fabrics in my time. WHen I got an engaged the first thing I wanted to do was get my dress because it’s something I’ve always dreamed about. The venture did not go well. I’m not a tiny girl ( a 14 in street clothes and about a 18-20 in wedding gowns) but I accepted going in that I would be squeezing into sample size 12’s so I tried not to let that get me down. I knew i wanted a Maggie Sottero and stocked the website, I really thought I would know “the one”. I didn’t find it the first, second, or third time I went dress shopping. I liked a lot of them but none of them felt like it was “the one”. So i put it off for about a month and then found that a Maggie trunk show was going on not terribly far from my house. I went and found 2 dresses I really liked and got a little pressured by the salon owner as well as my family to “just pick one”. Everyone was telling me I was agonizing over it and that I couldn’t make a bad choice between the two (Margot and Dominique). So i decided to with Dominique… I loved the dress and felt pretty good about my decison. Then I got the call that my gown is in and I can come try it on and I instantly felt sick to my stomach. I’m litterally terrified to go try it on because I’m scared I’m going to hate it and be out $1400.
I don’t know why I am so indecisive… is this normal? And it’s not even like I’m saying oh i should have gotten the Margot, i’m just freaking out that I made a bad choice.
What are your thougths and have any of you had a similar experience?
