Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer
After three and a half long months, I received the most expensive delivery I’ve ever received – my wedding dress. I am still as much in love with it as I was the first time I put it on. I think it somehow got more gorgeous over the past couple months.
Finding this dress was the most stressful process that I’ve done thus far in the wedding planning process. I had a specific taste of what I wanted in mind but had no idea what style of dress I wanted. This made it very difficult to describe what I liked to the poor consultants who attempted to help me. I went to four stores before finding the right store, and the right consultant, for me. Some of the earlier stores, I won’t mention any names, were the kind of store that the consultant was the only one allowed to peruse the inventory. Needless to say, every dress she pulled was wrong for me. I definitely had more luck at the other stores that I was actually allowed to look at their inventory (I don’t think that was too much to ask). However, none of the other stores had exactly what I was looking for, even though I had no idea what I wanted. I just hadn’t experienced the “This is MY dress” moment yet.
All this changed when I finally went to Stacey’s Bridal. It took me way too long to think of going here to search for thee dress. I purchased both of my prom dresses here and have always had the most wonderful experience. My consultant could read my thoughts like a dream and he knew exactly what I was after. I told him what designer I was looking towards for inspiration and he actually pulled that designer’s collection immediately for me to look at. Safe to say, I found THE dress in less than an hour. It was such a breath of fresh air to have a consultant who listened to me and watched my facial expressions when my words fell short of my thoughts.
Now, after all of the pain of looking for a dress I’m so happy to have it here and know that it looks just as beautiful as I remember. And thank goodness I don’t have to go on a drastic wedding fad diet to fit into it. It’s the perfect size and I couldn’t be happier! Of course, I can’t post pictures because of a sneaky fiancé. It’s safe to say I’ll post plenty of pictures of it in a year. 🙂
