- Wedding: June 2014
About 4 months ago I started my dress shopping and I knew what I liked, disliked and more important what I really wanted. I wanted a Maggie Sottero since she is one of the few designers that imports to the Netherlands. So I looked for boutiques that sold her dresses. The first bridalshop I tried was I complete disaster. I tried 3 dresses, which were 4 sizes to large and were absolutly not what I wanted. The girl who was fitting me had no clue what she was doing, they used pins instead of clamps to make it fit me, I don’t know how many times I got stabbed with the pins. So when I went to the second bridal boutique I really really wanted to have a good experience. And it was a good experience, accept that they put I dress on me that I didn’t care for on the hanger but I didn’t want to be to close minded. It was the first dress the consultant put on me and it was ok. But than I showed it to my mom and sister, and my mom just loved the dress. I had on about 5 or 6 other dresses. One of these dresses I and my sister loved (maggie sottero’s Allison), it was not exactly what I wanted but I loved it. Only my mother did not like it. So my consultant put me in the first dress again and gave me a matching veil. I do not know if it was the veil but I really started to like it. Everybody told me I looked so beautiful in it, not just my mom, sister and consultant but other people in the store and other consultants. So I said yes to this dress, Maggie Sottero’s Kadee and I was happy until a week later. I knew I made the wrong decision and there is nothing I can do about it, it was already orderd and I have to buy it. It is a gorgeous dress but it is not me. I am starting to hate. I know it is not the most important thing, that is that I am going to marry the man I love. But it is frustrating and I have no clue what to do about it..
