So I should start with I'm not the type of bride who envisioned her wedding. Having a hard time with getting excited by it all. It's going to cost more than I would like. FH and I have a plan for that. I should also say I live in NJ so expensive 😫. But as for the dress.... I always just thought I would wear my mom's dress. I went to a tailor/seamstress who can do it for a reasonable price (under $600). But finding a person who is willing to clean a 40 year old dress is proving difficult and expensive ($300). So I figured I'd go to look at dresses under $1k since that's what I'd be spending anyway. I went to David's Bridal and tried on a million dresses (my mom, sister and FSIL). I'm 5'0 and some of the dresses just made me look so horribly short and I should mention I'm curvy (36 bust, 31 waist, 44 hips). I just didn't feel like a bride? Idk if I will. I mean everyone keeps asking if I'm excited and not really... I'm so excited about getting married to FH but other than that meh... But I want the first dance and to dance with my dad and party all night long. But the planning part is just meh for me. I see all these people who say they just knew and cried when they put on their dress.... I know I'll cry at the ceremony. But basically what I'm asking is.... Am I the only one? Wants the traditional wedding but isn't having the excitement of planning it? Am I supposed to be head over heels for a dress? Or can I just think I look nice and love aspects of it?
