Dressing Shopping on Friday....


Monday, February 25, 2013

I was a basket case from the time i got up Friday morning til the time My girlfriend and i got to the Bridal Boutique...Why you may ask? I had to try on clothes...never mind just regular clothes but dress and Fancy not everyday dresses. I had told them i wanted to try on some Bridesmaid dresses and Wedding Gowns....Oh BOY....
So i cried and hyperventaliated from the time i got up til my appointment at 2... I have a hard time trying things on Cause i like something try it on and 1 it doesnt fit or 2 it looks terrible because of my size. So this was not gong to be an easy 2 hours...not to mention that everyone told me to expect to be trying on dresses that are about 2 sizes bigger than i normally wear..Panic Mode since i already am close to being the biggest size htey had there.
I went in and the Consultant could tell right away that i was uncomfortable. She took all my fears away and said not to worry...So i picked some Bridesmaid dresses and to my surprise i was able to get a few on and see what they looked like and picked one... which i uploaded to Sparkpeople a couple of days ago. Its going to be gorgeous. Then on to Wedding dresses... i got nervous again..will i get them on...I never had a real wedding dress in my first wedding i had one made cause i was to ashamed of my body to go into a store for one. emoticon So i said if i got married again i wanted a Real Wedding Dress. So i picked a couple and my girlfriend picked a couple and the consultant picked a few. I started to try them on and to my surprise i fit into a 24-26.... emoticon ... I was elated and found the one accompanied by a few tears at how good it looked ...and the consultant brought me a just for fun dress. It was a true Cinderella Dress...Ball gown Crystals, bling the whole nine yards...i put it on and Wow...once i was laced into it...OMG i started to really cry this time emoticon and i looked at my girlfriend and she was crying too...OMG that was THE ONE..... Funny how the just for fun became the one....
I am not getting it right now though because i have 17 mths til my wedding and weight to lose and the Consultant said to much weight loss and it would ruin the dress trying to take it in to many sizes so i will wait...And Try it on again in a few months or Find a different Cinderella dress who knows....
The best part of the trip was that i finally found where i have lost the weight...In the wedding dresses i found a great thing...What? THat i have a waist and a great shape.... emoticon

    That is so sweet. I am glad that they are making bridesmaid dresses and wedding dresses in more sizes. I think the last time I was in a wedding, you tried on like a size 10 and it was either too small or too big. My sister had the opposite issue when she got married at 18. She is only 4'11" and was very thin. She was trying on size 10 dresses and she looked like a little girl trying on her mother's wedding gown. She finally found one that looked like her.
Sounds like you are on the right track and I also added you as a friend.
