Is dress shopping usually this mind consuming??

Recommended Posts

Kate that dress is stunning!! I love it. I guess as lawyers even we can be proven wrong. hehe. I don't blame you for being obsessed, it's gorgeous. I would want to buy it right then and there and then try it on every second I got to be alone. Remember the episode of friends when they all try on the wedding dresses? Monica is like washing dishes in the wedding dress. That's what I would be like.

Thanks! I'm loving the lace element - and the dress has enough structure to make it look like I have a waist. We'll see though. It's a new style so I don't have to worry about it being discontinued before I decide.

And yes, if I got it I would be wearing it as we speak. I would have gone to Costco in it earlier too.

Seiously, nothing like buying tampons in bulk and eating a $1.50 hotdog in a new wedding dress.

Kate - the one thing I had the most angst/obsession/craziness over was dress shopping. So don't worry, it's normal.

 

Also, speaking of Costco...I have a confession. One day before I got married I wore my wedding band to Costco! It's just that the lights are SO bright there and they make diamonds look SO good I just had to do it. I came home and confessed to hubby though...I couldn't keep my mouth shut! He just laughed at me.

Kate, if at all possible see if they will let you take pictures in the dress. I was totally unsure so I had my mom take pics of me in the three dresses I liked, and once I saw myself without the pressures of the bridal shop I wound up deciding on a dress that I never thought I would get based on what I looked like in the pictures. I thought to myself, when I get my pics back I want to feel good about it and feel timeless. My advice, think about what you want to be able to look back on and feel like on that day.

ps. that dress is beautiful, I am sure you will look beautiful in anything you pick.

oh and being preoccupied by the dress and wedding details is normal-it better be or all of us are abnormal!!!

I second Christine's recommendation of sneaking some pics if you can!

 

Anyway I just wanted to re-state that you should NEVER under any circumstanc es try on a dress you cannot afford - not matter how much you are not expecting to like it. I was literally just goofing around when I tried on my dress... and well - there are enough posts up about my dress buying fiasco...

 

FYI In the end I bought it anyway!

Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
