Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. With school work, work, and running a house, I just couldn't find the time. So with a big research paper due next Thursday, I will probably not be blogging as much as I want to. But I will try! Luckily, I won't have classes again until September! Whooo hooo!
So lets catch up a bit, shall we?
Well, for starters I didn't lose 10lbs by February 8th which was when I was going to get my wedding dress. I lost only about 5lbs at that time. I was disappointed but still was excited about getting a wedding dress. Then my plans got changed even more when I had to after work on the 7th because of the blizzard that was hitting the next day. Ughh!
I picked up my Mom and hit some serious traffic. What should have taken me 30 minutes took me 2 1/2 hours with the traffic! Needless to say I was late for my 6:30 appointment. Luckily, David's Bridal was not busy. Wheww. So they took me in fairly quickly.
I brought a list of dresses that I loved, expresses my ideas and had vision in my head of what I wanted. Yet I feel that my consultant wasn't exactly paying attention and I guess not all the dresses I loved came in my size. Sigh...stinks being the heavy girl.
The first dress I tried on was one I drooled over even before I got engaged.
Well I tried the dress on and......
It looked AWFUL!
The dress was stiff and made my gut stick out. I felt like I wouldn't be able to even walk in it.
Afterwards, I tried on several other dress but all of them looked and felt bad. I even tried a tea length dress that just was soooo bad.
I wanted style. I wanted texture. I wanted something different.
Then I tried on this dress...
It had glitter. It had tulle. It was made me look and feel like a princess. It was amazing.
It was..... $400 over my budget
I just couldn't justify the price. If this was my first wedding, I would have been all over this dress. But for a second wedding.... I just couldn't spend that kind of money.
Sadly, I told her to take it back. I tried on a few other dresses. Nothing matched that dress. The store was going to close in another 30 minutes and I could tell my consultant was getting irritated with my pickyness. I was just not happy.
Then I told her about a dress I saw online. I wrote the number ID number down before I left because the dress just so happen to come in my price range. She went off to look for the dress while I pouted about the dress that I couldn't afford.
The consultant came back with 3 new dresses and one of them was the dress I had my eyes on. I looked at the dress and hated it on the hanger. Its boring, I thought. I tried on the dress and hated it even more. It feels like a prom dress. The consultant zipped me up and I went to check myself out in the mirror.
Dear god....the dress is stunning on me! I looked like a size 4 not a size 14. A sparkly sash was added and that's all it took. I knew that this was the dress I wanted!
It was comfortable, looked amazing on me and it was different. I will need to post pics of me actually wearing the dress, but for right now this is all I have. I can't wait for David to see me!!!
