    ...someone please save me. I think I am going to go insane with this wedding planning! I really don't know whether I am coming or going anymore. Just when I think I got things under control; they get worse. I just recently moved my wedding back home--Stress #1

    Stress #2 I buy/order my dress about a month ago without seeing it. BAD mistake #1! Something in my mind today was like, "Kim call around to see if anyone has your dress so you can finally try it on." Ok, Bingo-I found it at a local boutique. Ladies when I say this dress is a trainwreck. Whoa! It looked a hot mess on me. Pics below. To make matters worse, the sample is a 12--the lady convinced me that I needed a size 16 (keep in mind I am holding the dress in the picture) OMG. Now I have ordered a baggy HOT mess. I'm pissed!

    Oh let me also not forget to mention that this is like DRESS #3 for me = STRESS #3


    STRESS #4 Im running out of time and the kind sales lady today offered a Maggie dress to me. Side note: Ever since I moved the wedding back home I have been playing around with the option of getting a more traditional gown. I was even pondering a trip to Kleinfelds and getting one of those obnoxiously huge dresses (only because that's my ideal dress stye)--"thanks" to you ladies. Until this forum I never knew what a "Kleinfelds" was. Anyway, so I try the dress on and I kind of like it. But I need your thoughts because one of the reasons why I am in this predicament is because I keep going to bridal shops by myself and making crazy last minute decisions. So what do you ladies think? Its actually pretty affordable and I can purchase the sample for 15% off.

      Oh wow you do seem to be very stressed and I'm really sorry about the dress situation. However, I think that dress looks great on you and would be perfect for the wedding.

        I do like dress #2 better, I think that it might fit your new venue better. Dress #1 would be fine as well though, but could it be altered in time Dress shopping by yourself must be a nightmare, I don't know what I would have done without my friends / mom there with me. Good luck!

          Dress shopping is stressful enough let alone without someone to support you. I like dress #2 - Good Luck!

            GET THE MAGGIE!!!! It's amazing on you....I love love love it!!!! the other dress is pretty, but it's kind of over-powering, all you focus on is the dress. The maggie dress is still dramatic, but you carry it so well, it brings out your figure and the details are beautiful!! The back is stunning! I'm sure it looks even better in person.

              To be completely honest, I really like both dresses. They both seem to suit your body type and are very flattering...I love one strapped dresses!!

                Try and relax! Keep breathing! Everything will be ok. Hang in there. I like the second dress a lot! But I think the first one is nice also

                  Just keep reminding yourself that all of this planning is to marry your man!!
                  You look grogeous in both dresses, but go wth the dress that made you smile the most.
                  Both dresses are great in different ways. Dress #1 is flirty and sexy (the bottom is great). Dress #2 is very sleek, elegant, and sexy. IMO dress #2 looks stellar on you!
                  Good luck........I find that wine instantly takes away wedding stress....haha!

                    Awww I know it's hard not to stress, but for your sanity you totally need to de-stress!

                    Anyhoo, I really like the first dress on you and I do not think it is a hot mess at all...that being said, I do love the second dress on you as well and I think the color really compliments your gorgeous skin tone. I hope this helps you a little! :)

                      They both look nice, number 2 is looks better on you, but why do you have 3 dresses?!? or did I read that wrong. Stay away from the stores!! You will always doubt your choices if you keep looking for more answers. The one that you ALREADY purchased is nice. Get it altered and make it fit the way you want it to. Stop stressing, breathe....whoooosah...whoooosah now rub your ears and I repeat "STAY AWAY FROM BRIDAL STORES" :) hope this helps. You are beautiful and you wear the dress, don't let the dress or should I say dresseS wear you.
