I found my dress! Woo-hoo! I had looked online a few times and knew what I liked. Emailed back and forth with friends about dresses. Then I showed Mars a few dresses. We totally agreed on dresses we liked. I love that in the end, I bought the dress that we both loved!
On Sunday my sister, sister-in-law and two friends piled into David's Bridal. I knew what I wanted to try on, but I knew that I needed to keep my mind open to anything. It just happened that my favorite dress was the first I tried on, two sizes too small, and everyone absolutely loved it. I tried on other dresses that fit really well and looked pretty fabulous, but everyone went back to that first dress. I'm excited that everyone loved it and even more excited that it was on sale! Still more than I wanted to pay(ok I only wanted to pay $100) but it was within a good price range. The only problem, because I'm a big girl, I had to order it and it will be delivered 10 days before the wedding! Ten Days! That scares the shit out of me! I tried on other dresses in my size and they fit perfectly...only altering will need to be in length. So this dress should fit perfectly except for length. Still I haven't tried my dress on in my size! What if it looks awful! Everyone keeps saying if it looks good in the wrong size, it can only look better in the correct size...I sure hope so!
Here is my main thought, I just have a hard time spending that much money on something I will wear once. I love that I have a dress but I'm not overly emotional about it. For me I'm a lot more invested in just having a great weekend with our closest friends and family. Of course I want to look damn good, but I don't see myself keeping the dress wrapped up in a box in my closet. Of course this is before the wedding thinking, maybe it will be more for me later. What do you all think? Am I odd for thinking that I would sell the dress on...pass it to someone else getting married? Or keep I keep it in hopes that if I have a daughter later, that she will want to wear it?
