Yep you heard right,…AGAIN… and i haven’t even told you all about my first time when i went wedding dress shopping because i thought i would write the wedding dress post a little bit later on into my wedding planning journey.
So let me tell you about my Dream Wedding Dress Nr. 1.
I saw it about 2 years before Mr. C. and me where even engaged, but we did talk about getting married one day so i thought it wouldn’t harm if i have a bit of a browse in good old eBay right?
What i didn’t expect was to find a dress 35 min drive away from me so beautiful but yet soooo different to what i wanted actually it was quite the opposite.
It was strapless ( i do have big boobs and i don’t like my top arms at all), it had a trail (never wanted something big and massive)and it had loads of shiny things around the bust and going into the lower part of the dress.
Despite all that i still went and tried it on, funny enough my mum was in Town due to a course so i asked her if she wants to come with me to try it on.
I was gutted when i couldn’t get the zip to close even though it was my size (it was a US 18).
And my Mum just told me although its a lovely dress i will find the right one suited for me and we can go wedding dress shopping when i am in Germany next.
So i let it go but couldn’t really forget about it.
Then i got pregnant so kind of forgot about browsing the Internet and magazines for a while up until the day when Mr. C. went up that stage and propose to me.
2 days after i had that ring on my finger and back on English ground i emailed the seller after still seeing the item up for sale on eBay.
I asked if i can have it for 300£ less then the offering price and she hesitated first but then agreed to it.
So its been hanging in my friends wardrobe ever since, i went to try it on about 2 month after MM was born and although it did fit me better i still couldn’t completely close the zip.
And then i went to visit Germany and hear all about this amazing Wedding dress shop and well just get sucked into it….so my mum my newly wedded cousin Nicola, Molly-May and me headed for “Honeymoon” that’s what the shop is called. Heaven right?
What i didn’t expect was to try on 8 yep EIGHT dresses and fallen in love with one of them:
Please note this is NOT “the one i want” although i did try this one check out those lovely sparkly sequins! Its another Justin Alexander (just like my first dress) Dress from the new collection.
So now i got a dilemma what to do, what to do??
After sleeping over it a few nights i made the decision that i don’t want to put a few more 100£ into my first dress and that this will go back on eBay (fingers crossed it will sell quicker then last time!!) but i also had to tell the shop what i wanted to do with Dream Dress Nr. 2. So i decided (for now) that i would like to go to 1 particular shop in the UK (the one i always wanted to visit) and maybe another one or 2 i heard of through friends.
Don’t get me wrong i do love my Dream Dress Nr. 2 BUT I cant get rid of the feeling “what if?” and to avoid that question i want to try on a few more dresses and take it from there.
So i leave you with today’s Question!
What would you do??
