Attire and Accessories
When my fiance and I got engaged, we had set our wedding date six months out. I went to DB my first dress shopping trip left me in tears due to the sales lady and my own mother. So, I waited until another month to try on dresses. The next several experiences went really well and I was feeling more excited about dress shopping. Well, I ended up going to a bridal store and was informed that due to the date of my upcoming wedding, I was limited on dress options. Unfortunately, I was unaware that it took several months to have one ordered. So I picked a dress that my mom and moh loved along with other sales reps and customers. I was having anxiety as my mom paid for the dress and just figured I was nervous since I really felt like I needed to order a dress ASAP. I like to think things over for big decisions. I've tried the dress on two other times since then but now I am freaking out thinking this isn't my dress. It's not what I originally dreamed of and I'm starting to wonder did I pick it to please others. I don't know what to do. My parents spent a lot of money on that dress. I keep praying that these doubts are normal and may be triggered by something else. People have suggested getting a second dress but I would hate to spend the money or disrespect my parents. I'm trying so hard to think positively and be thankful for my parents generosity but I can't shake the feeling this isn't my dress. Any advice?
