The day of my wedding I never once thought that my dress wasn't perfect. I never thought oh my wedding is ruined because I'm not wearing the dress I imagined I would. I thought this is the best day of my life and I look beautiful. Mom- I'm so glad I listened to you, ha.
Want to see pictures of what I wore and what I thought I wanted to wear?

Now my original dress thoughts:
I was looking for something like this style, simple, but with some embellishment.
The second and last dress are the dresses I imagined. I called them my dream dresses.

Fourth, If you are like me and wait too long and are stuck with the fact that you cannot wear your original dress. Sell it and buy a sample. Sites like this , this, or this can help. In addition ebay always has tons of listings of dresses as well as weddingbee classifieds.
