It feels so lovely to be writing on this blog again after a bit of a break – of course I’ve been planning the wedding like mad, but work has been very busy recently. Including a cheeky week in Mallorca with the 2 gentlemen that I support, so it’s been a lovely but busy month!
So on Monday 5th October, my 3 bridesmaids and fiancée’s mum came with me dress shopping. I got to charlottes house and was greeted by this which was so so lovely..
So dress shopping was surprising.. I absolutely loved every single thing I tried on to begin with 🙈 this made it much more confusing for me as I honestly thought I would be really fussy.
Shop 1- I picked a dress I liked the look of, it turned out to be the most expensive one in the shop (no surprise there!) I loved it, it was everything that I thought i wanted in a dress and it looked lovely. I tried on others in this shop and none of them quite compared to the first dress I tried on. However, it just didn’t give me the WOW that I was expecting?
Shop 2 – This was a good shop, because the woman that worked there obviously had a lot of experience in dress’ and seeing what suits the brides to be. She made me try on something I would never ever usually consider.. It was absolutely beautiful. The style 100% suited and flattered my figure. It had my bridesmaids in tears because we were all sure it was ‘the one’…. However, I felt amazing in it I really did, but something was niggling at me and to this day in still not sure what it is?
We then went for lunch, after a couple of hours eating & drinking wine I felt a bit tipsy!! Not the best idea for dress shopping 😂
Shop 3 – This was a bit of a write off to be honest! Not only did the wine effect me, my bridesmaids had almost lost interest in the dress’ because they were sure I had found ‘the one’ and they expressed how none of them compared to the dress I found in shop 2. After a while of trying dress on after dress nothing felt quite right.
This has left me more clueless than before I started trying on dresses! I am struggling to 100% LOVE the dress that my bridesmaids loved. I know it looks amazing on, but it just feels like something isn’t right but I don’t know what? Am I being fussy? Am I overthinking it? Should I take my bridesmaids opinions because I know how much they love it? I just don’t know! I’m currently planning another day it with the bridesmaids to try & get a clearer idea of what I want.
Any advice from previous brides or bride to be’s would be most appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to read the blog 😘
