..went dress shopping with three of my bridesmaids yesterday. It was fun! I almost bought a dress because it was on sale (and a discontinued dress, so they wouldn’t be getting anymore in) but it was two sizes too small. And I just wasn’t confident that I would be able to fit into that before the wedding.
(I haven’t been that size since highschool! D:)
Two sizes in less than 9 months?? Eesh. It’s not impossible, of course—but I would hate to make such a purchase and then not fit into it. Ultimately, it was too much of a gamble. When the consultant checked surrounding stores, she found that another store had the dress I liked, but they only had one that was a size too big. I guess I could get it taken in, but even that is risky ‘cause I know that they can only take it in so much without it compromising the look of the dress. Hmmmmm. :/ I mean, I’m still going to try a couple of stores, but… I gotta admit, it’s the one to beat and I’ll be really sad if it’s no longer available after everything.
We got the style number of the dress and my friends told me that lots of people sell their dresses online after wearing them, so even if I can’t find it in store, maybe I can still find one (that’s actually my size!). :D
Also, I think I said this in another entry.. but it’s just weird to me because I’m an emotional person. I cry easily, whether the tears flowing are from happiness or sadness. And.. well, I’m not a “cryer” when it comes to trying on wedding dresses. It surprised me, but when I put on the one I liked the best, I was just.. happy.
I wasn’t overcome with emotion, I just felt happy, pretty and comfortable. Hahaha… I figured that maybe it was just because getting married isn’t some huge dream of mine. I’m happy that it’s happening, of course, but it’s not something I looked forward to for my whole life or anything. I get more overcome with emotion when I just think about the fact that I have someone as wonderful as my fiance to love and be loved by.
Soo.. we’ll see how well I hold it together on the actual wedding day when I’m walking toward him or exchanging vows while lookin’ into those big green-blue eyes. c:
