Can't Find .. The One!!

Recommended Posts

I am growing ever-more frusterating with my wedding gown search!! I have tried on so many dresses; every style from ballgown to mermaid to sheath to A-line and all in between... I cannot find anything that I am 'in love' with!

 

Everyone talks about finding 'the one' but I am concerned that I will never find it!!

 

I have tried on things that were okay; they would work, but nothing felt perfect.

 

Now I am considering going the non-traditional route to see if I can find something I like that is maybe classified as an evening gown or something...

I wouldn't mind doing color.. but FMIL keeps saying that her son should get a bride in white. (This is my 2nd marraige and I think that bothers her!) Fh really doesn't care what color I wear.

 

I found this dress online and want to go try it on; I am almost afraid that I will love it and then FMIL will freak.

So, I guess I am just freaking out a bit .. Thanks for listening girls!!!

I ended up buying a dress that "would work" and had the same feeling - I wanted something I would love. So...I took it to a seamstress along with an inspiration picture (of a dress that was way out of my price range) and we are changing it up! She says doing this is almost half of her business. I am adding lace and changing the straps, etc.

 

What I did like about the one I bought (the cut, the back, and the basic style) was enough to turn it into my dream dress :) If you have an idea of what you like or a "dream" dress picture, get a dress that is similar in fit, shape, style and have it altered. My dress plus all the alterations are only $500 total. Now I love, love, love it!

That dress is really pretty! I love it! I looked at all kinds of boutiques in Houston for "the dress" and I ended up buying mine for $400 at David's Bridal. It's perfect. Here is the style number if you want to take a look. Style 9T9389.

Screw what the FMIL thinks this is your wedding and if that is the dress then that is the dress...just an FYI there are a few brands that have that or a similar style in white (Morgan & Co., OC by Oleg Cassini, Niteline, Adrianna Papell Evenings, Nightway, Niki, and Faviana) Hope this helps
