My first dress I bought last year and I had some doubts about it but then I got it and I was alright with it. Never had that bridal moment but I was really over the whole dress thing after 5-6 places. I’m plus too so I’m really picky about how this s look.
However, after my fittings, I really started to second guess my dress. Things I thought I liked just bugged me. The tailor is kind of high end and expensive (about $1700 in alterations so far) I went to really kind of made it worse, suggested sleeves, I paid for them and it just made me really hate this dress. She’s gonna charge me to remove them, etc. and I’m getting married in 3 weeks.
So I went today to a little off the rack shop and found literally the dress of my dreams. It was everything I wanted, fits perfectly, only needs a hem and bustle and it’s on track to be done by the 20th.
I feel really strange about telling my family about this…the money wasn’t an issue for us and I’m a lot happier so we are just happy with that. But I’m worried how my parents or family might react at this sudden change. The sleeves on my dress were atrocious—but some family who don’t like the tattoos I have were like “omg best decision you made Ever” and it just feels like that’s what made me feel so pressured to buy that first dress.
