What are my choices again?
With the reception hall all booked we are now on step two of the wedding planning, find a wedding dress. We went shopping this past weekend. Went into the first shop, she tried on four or five dresses. The last one was gorgeous. Boom, done! Next!
I like to think I am decisive but have a nagging feeling that I might be impulsive instead.
decisive: characterized by or displaying no or little hesitation; resolute; determined
impulsive: actuated or swayed by emotional or involuntary impulses
I think it is in our nature to view ourselves in the most favorable light so I'm sticking with decisive. I would have bought that dress then and there. Not so fast. My daughter is neither decisive nor impulsive. She is methodical and careful, recessive gene I think.
We have now been to an additional four bridal shops with one more to go before we circle back and start all over again because we forgot exactly what the first dress looked like.
Did you know they don't allow photography in most of these places? Stupid rule. When I asked why I got some lame reason about the lighting not being good and the pictures turn out bad. Seeing as how I am going to be dropping a pretty penny here why don't you just let me take my chances.
I have also learned there are two types of bustles, the French bustle and the American bustle. The French tucks under and the American pulls the dress up and hooks it onto your rear. I prefer the French bustle. It just looks better than having a big bump of dress on your ass.
Hopefully we can wrap this all up this weekend and move on to choosing a photographer. God help us, there seem to be quite a few bad ones out there.
