a confession

I have a terrible urge.......

It's awful, really. You have to tell me how awful it is so I stop obsessing over it!

My wedding was September 8, 2007 (we just celebrated 6 months as marrieds!) At the time I was planning, there was not a David's Bridal here in Alaska and the choices for plus-sized wedding dress shopping were dismal.

(I am the girl who visited a friend in San Jose and went to a David's Bridal to make an appointment but the lady was SO rude to us we turned around and walked out. So I went to another place tried on exactly ONE wedding dress in a style similar to the one I ended up ordering online, sight unseen and never tried on.)

So there is finally a David's Bridal here in town. I posted a rant about it in this community a couple months ago.

Well, I've lost another 30lbs since my wedding (had lost 40lbs before the wedding) and I would really like to try on wedding gowns because I never had the chance to do it.

Would it be *really* terrible of me to pretend I am not married yet and go try on wedding gowns at David's?

I don't think it would! You should go and enjoy yourself :)
(Don't forget about your wedding ring though!!)

Had already planned to put on my engagement ring (which is now too big) in place of the wedding band! :-)

i say go for it. if it'll get it out of your system, then have fun with it! I remember when i was 18, my friend and i went to a davids bridal & claimed we were having a double wedding just so we could try on dresses. These days however, I dread going dress shopping- i find it so incredibly boring and totally unamusing. I can't wait to get it out of the way and done with. But i kinda feel that way about any kind of shopping unless im buying housewares. lol.

Go for it! Just don't get suckered into buying a couple of wedding dresses. ;-) (And make sure to give them fake info so they don't hound you with phone calls and mailings!)
Mar. 13th, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC)
i second the fake info! my friend entered me into their contest to win a free wedding dress as a joke almost 2 years ago and i still receive incessant spam. ugh. she used my "no mailing list" email too, so it was beautifully spam free prior to this. :-(

Nope, not at all. I would be very vague though, tell them you're newly engaged, you don't have details or a date set yet, etc. I went to DB with my dressmaker and tried on dresses so she could see different styles on me. I never had any intent to buy and we pretended she was my Aunt.

(See, the voice of my conscience is saying the same thing! That is why I'm really torn...)

Hee...I tried on dresses when I didn't even have a boyfriend. Sometimes it's kind of fun.

Nah, I absolutely loved my dress. I felt every bit the bride and was very lucky that I knew what would look good on me and it fit perfectly.

Mar. 13th, 2008 10:53 pm (UTC)
NO, that is not anything close to terrible. that is called "fun." haha. i went cake tasting before i was even engaged. :-)
Mar. 13th, 2008 10:53 pm (UTC)
Why NOT go?? Have fun!
Mar. 13th, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
Go for it and celebrate your accomplishment.

Good for you loosing 70 lbs...that is absolutely amazing...you should be so proud of yourself.

I am forever still "planning" things for my wedding that was last month...it is still kinda fun to pretend to do those things although now it is nice because there is no stress involved (or money)..ha ha
Mar. 14th, 2008 06:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you - I have a ways to go before I'm at my goal but am glad I've come this far!

It is hard to get out of "planning" mode if you've been in it for awhile. I still lurk on this community from time to time because it's fun to be voyeuristic. ;-)

If I could, I'd go every year and pretend to be a bride just to try on gowns! It's a lot of fun when there's no pressure to buy anything! Do it!
Mar. 13th, 2008 11:36 pm (UTC)
i dont think theres any reason why you shouldnt if you really want to. and you shouldnt feel guilty about not buying a dress because there are plenty of times when you dont find THE dress even after trying a bunch on so its possible that could be the case when you go. just make sure not to let anyone know the truth! =)
