So, A while back I spent weeks trying to find the perfect dress. I trawled through the shops until, finally, I cried over a dress. I knew this was 'the one' and I was thrilled. Only thing was....It was COMPLETELY over budget! So I put off ordering it for a few months.
Then, I planned a dress-trying day with my family/girlfriends to show them this dress & confirm what I already knew, that it was 'the one'. So the day before said trip, I decide to go to this other store to have a look at these dresses I have always wanted to see. I knew I wouldn't find anything as nice as 'my dress' but I wanted to look anyway. Low & behold one particular dress stood out & I made the mistake of trying it on. It was beautiful...but no tears! I really liked it but knew my dress was nicer. The woman in the shop then tells me she is putting this dress on sale soon & if I was interested, she would give it to me at the sale price-which, by the way, is one third the price of my dream dress.
Between one thing and another, I rush-bought the sale dress because of several reasons: 1- it was much cheaper than dream dress. 2- The material was not as heavy and the train was shorter (good for beach). 3- the materials would not damage as easily as the dream dress on the beach, as I am having an AHR the week after we get back, this was important.
All these things aside....It is not my dream dress & every day I think about the dress I wanted, I almost cry. I know the dream dress was probably not feasible for the type of wedding we are having...but I wanted it none the less.
I am now considering buying the dream dress now as well as the one I have at home. Am I making a mistake?
The first 2 pics are of the dress I have at home. The last 2 are of my dream dress.
