So I was looking for some reassurance, because I am two weeks out from having to choose my wedding dress and the thought of making a decision is giving me anxiety attacks. My Mum will be in town and the only other time she will be here between now the the big day, is less that 6 months from the wedding, which as anyone who has been wedding dress shopping can tell you is the latest you can order your dress.
I REALLY want for her to be apart of the choosing process- for reasons outside of anyone's control she wasn't able to be there for any of my other big moments where girls bond with their Mum's due to us living far far away (I went to boarding school, it was the only way I could get an education, but it means I left home at 11). So I need to pick a dress when she's there.
But, it's not happening, I start looking with my BMs so we'd have a narrowed down selection to show her, and while I have liked dresses, I haven't loved one, haven't felt like the prettiest girl in the room and ANYTHING I have tried on more that once I liked it less the 2nd time. It's getting to the point where I am starting to stress about it.
Every other wedding decision has been so easy, I have had an emotional reaction (e.g. we only met with one photographer and I KNEW this is the woman I want around me on the day, FH and I chose out wedders in about 15 mins, and when we stood in the church where we are going to say those all important vows I got this sense of peace and happiness I have never felt before), but the dress is just not happening, I can't even pick a style (I like ballgown and mermaid because they are so freakin' similar).
Does ANYONE have any advice or can they share a similar story? I really want to be able to have this moment with my Mum, but if I like each dress less when I put it on, I don't want to hate it by the time I get to the alter.
