Of all the exciting things that come along with being newly engaged and planning a wedding, one of the most thought-consuming aspects of the entire process is finding that perfect dress. "You'll just know!" everyone tells me, "You won't have any doubts when you finally find it!" "I chose the first gown I tried on!"
... at this point I've probably tried on 40 wedding gowns. I've had half a dozen that I truly liked, but not one really took my breath away. Whether it's because the size is too large (or small), or perhaps the sales lady is snotty (why do they even hire women like that at bridal shops??), something always seems just a little off with my dress-shopping experience.
I thought I knew what I wanted, but I tried it on, and it turned out to not be the case. Is it possible that there really is a "perfect dress" out there? Not every women could possibly have that "aha" moment. I have months before I really have to start to decide and I'm still holding out hope that everyone is right, that I'll find my dream dress ... I just wish it would be sooner rather than later!
