But walked out and said that I would not commit. My family said that it looked nice but was too much and they wanted to see me in a sexy dress so the two after were Greek goddess looking dresses with lots of bling!
Continued to go back to the dress that I felt like a bride in (if this is how it is suppose to feel?) and I bought it. It was 900 and I could have them remove the puffy part (tulle) under the skirt. So I got it!!!!! But now I am second guessing my self saying that I should have tried on more and I can't sleep... So I am up writing!!!!
Does this usually happen?
This is the picture of my dress... I will have them remove the shoulder piece so that I can snap it on or off depending how I want to look. And remove the bottom
I have no idea why I am feeling like I made a mistake when I cried and felt like that was it....
I am also thinking of getting the sexy dress for my reception since I still have room in my budget and my fianc© said it was ok.
Thanks ladies any tips would really help right now!
I haven't started dress shopping yet but thought I would give you my opinion anyways. If you felt like a bride and loved yourself in the dress don't second guess yourself. There are tons of girls that shop around for a long time trying to get that feeling people get when they get the perfect dress and it seems like you already got it. Some girls never get the feeling and end up settling for whatever is available. I say enjoy your purchase. Get excited, its your dress! Now since you have a budget for the reception, go ahead and get something sexy, you can have the best of both worlds without compromising that feeling that most girls look for and cannot achieve. I wish you peace of mind and happy planning! I hope some of the other girls that have already purchase can give you their point of view.
