May I cast your attention back to my first attempt at buying a wedding dress (you can read my post on that here) when I made the ... unfortunate decision to purchase my dress online, hey it works for some people, it just didn't work out for me... and sadly our budget got a smack for no reason. Sorry budget.
I have taken the experience from dress 1 though (I even cringe writing dress 1) and I intend to move forward, learning from my errors.
I have since booked an appointment with an actual boutique, I made a call and discussed my budget, body shape and preferences in a dress and now I am excited for what Friday's appointment brings (I'll keep you posted of course.)
I never knew the 'technical' term but apparently I love modern-vintage dresses, and they seem to love high price tags *shakes fist* so I am hoping that on Friday I can try on a dress, it then becomes the dress and I will celebrate with a coffee (not in the dress of course.)
