So I bought a wedding dress. It was kind of an impulse buy. It was 20% off, but it was still £150 over my very minimal budget for a dress. The dress is lovely, and bar having to lose my rather rounded belly in 6 months I like it. BUT (always a but!) I cant decide if I should keep it or not. I can return it within 28 days of last week…
The issue is this. The dress is long and slim fitting, with a medium ish train. This is great for walking in a straight line down the church aisle yes, for dancing not so much. It cant be hooked up to form a bustle kind of thing, because it would look bloody weird. I COULD sew a ribbon loop in it and hook it on my wrist, but this would mean that everyone will be able to see at least half my thigh and all my leg whilst I am dancing, especially with Sam as he is bloody tall and I am not, so my arm will be above my head if it is resting romantically (HAHAHA) on his shoulder during my first dance. Or he will trample all over it, or I will, or we both will and end up in a heap on the floor halfway through our first dance.
for imagerys sake the dress is a little like this: (not showing you the real one in case I keep it)
[not my dress, just similar bottom bit/train length]
So, these are my options:
a) keep the dress and purchase a shorter CHEAPER dress to change into for dancing, sending me realistically at least £250 over budget…
b) return the dress and buy one within my budget that I can dance in… (but I haven’t seen anything I like as much as this one!)
c) keep the dress and hope for the best and sew a ribbon wrist loop in… and risk falling over
What train did your dress have, did you fall arse over tit during your first dance?
