DRESS HELP! second guessing dress (...again)
Okay bear with me, the story is important to the conflict. I said "yes" to a mermaid dress at bridals by lori on a weekend trip to ATL and instantly knew I had made a mistake, so I continued looking the next day at another salon. I found a BEAUTIFUL Paloma Blanca ballgown that made me look like a cake topper and I couldn't stop looking at myself, but I didn't get it. I have anxiety and a pretty big fear of making quick decisions.. which I felt like this weekend was full of. But one thing I knew was that the other mermaid dress was a definite NO. So when I called to cancel, I ended up making another appointment at Lori's and said yes again to an off-the-rack Rivini ballgown. I really liked it then, and my mom's reaction was priceless. It is now almost 2 months later and I am still thinking about the Paloma Blanca dress and still looking at pictures. I feel like I should go try it on again... and I keep comparing pictures of both gowns (and like the PB pictures online better). Also, the PB gown is white where as the Rivini dress is more creamy oatmeal, and I even initially said I had wished the Rivini was white (but its discontinued so thats not possible). What should I do?! Should I go try on the Paloma dress?? I am honestly even considering buying a used/preowned version..? I just don't want to be too easily influenced by other people's reactions/preferences (my mom) or by the environment/pressure to "say yes to the dress" at the SYTTD place... any and all words of advice are greatly appreciated! I have lots of time, my wedding is next september!
