I got a package in the mail.

The dress arrived!
It's lovely. It's a bit big but it drapes nicely over my body and the colour is really nice, sort of a candle light colour if that makes sense which is very flattering on pasty white me.
I like it, but I don't LOVE it. I could easily wear it, but my heart doesn't belong to it. I tried it on and I was just like "Well it looks nice." I wanted to look in the mirror and feel something but I didn't. I just felt like I feel when I try on a nice dress. Does that make sense?
I want a dress that says "Hi I'm getting married today!" I want a dress that makes me feel special, stunning and like a bride.
Most of all it just didn't feel like me. I felt weird and old in it. Maybe it was the floor length, I don't think I've owned a floor length dress...hmmm ever! I felt a bit like I was a kid wearing my mothers formal gown playing dress up. Maybe it was because it came in a box to my work. I think what I'll do is try it on again in a couple of weeks and see how I feel about it then.

Jane said...

Maybe if you get it altered you will like it better!? Good luck and I hope you fall in love with it!

Aww honey I'm sorry! I agree with Jane-- try altering it. Also, what about dressing it up with accessories? That might be the key! I hope it ends up making you feel absolutely beautiful and makes you glow!

Definitely have someone pin it up so you can see what it looks like when it's tailored for your body. And try it on with some sassy shoes! If you still don't like it, no worries, b/c I'm sure there's a dress out there for you!

Krista said...

Try it on with a veil or whatever accessories, and have it pinned.

Then see what you think.

if it's not you, it's not you!

Don't wear something you don't feel perfect in from head to toe...if alterations help, than awesome, but make sure you've tried other styles of dreses to make sure that this is the one.

OMG I was watching that dress...and was so excited when I saw it on sale.

Now you have me thinking I will feel the same way. Sounds like it didnt feel like a wedding dress....

Try it on in a few weeks...and if you dont love it, return it. You have plenty of time to find something you love. I know photographs are important to you, and you wont feel as confident it a dress you just "like" and that will show in the film!

At least you have one, so those naked wedding nightmares can stop! (uh did I just say that outloud?)
Hannah's right though, a good seamstress can make a huge difference.
