To be honest, the whole dress shopping experience process was a little difficult/sad for me. My mother had passed away a few years ago and while I have grieved and gone through the healing process, I knew I would always be very sad about her absence if I ever were to get married. I was never the kind of girl that thought about getting married, or envisioned what kind of dress I would wear so it was overwhelming to start looking.
I got engaged on Valentine's Day 2014 and I didn't start looking for dresses until September. My wedding is June 20th, and I suppose I'm cutting it close. I was told that in order to guarantee the arrival of my current #1 pick dress by April, I'd have to order this Monday. So Monday it is!
Thankfully I have amazing friends, my sister and Mother-in-law who have been extremely supportive and have come with me to my appointments. It certainly helped not to feel as sad that my mom isn't here for this epic occasion.
One of the dress fittings I attended was just myself and my sister, and we walked in, saw a dress, I tried it on, and there were tears....!!
I was soooo in love with it and so sure it was the one. I decided to think on it...I think it's the one. For some reason I feel like I could find something better. I don't know if that's just normal and part of the process.
I will post a picture of #1 choice and some of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th choices. Any feedback would be welcomed.
Is it normal to feel like this unsure? It's crazy. lol I do love my #1 but I still keep thinking about what else could be out there.
Here they are!
#1 fit and flare (david's bridal)
#2 Ballroom gown (kleinfeld's)
#3 A-line flar (DB)
