So I should probably have a dress by now.

In fact, it’s almost more important than writing this blog.  But this blog is so easy.  I get to sit in a comfortable chair and pour my heart out to thousands of strangers.  I get to sip coffee in my pajamas & think about the horrendous dresses I’ve tried on to date, rather than stand naked in front of a woman tugging crinoline over my head. 

So I’ll just write a blog about it.

I don’t have a dress. And it’s now 3 months until the wedding.  And while I knew this was a pressing priority, crisis mode didn’t smack me in the face until I saw an article in The Knot recommending you order your dress at the 9 month out mark. 

I have run the gamut in my dress explorations.  I’ve met with private designers. I’ve been to bridal salons. I’ve 90% committed…only to second guess myself within minutes & walk out of the store flustered.

Here’s the conundrum in which I live: I want a big dress. But I don’t want a big dress.  Let me clarify- I don’t want to look like a Disney princess slash cake topper:

Dear God, shoot me.

But I have the opportunity to wear beautiful dresses quite often & I want my wedding dress to be special- something I couldn’t get away with wearing on a red carpet.  I want some volume, but I want a little less traditional.  A little edgy, but appropriate to the venue.  A needle in a haystack.

And time is so not on my side.  At this point, I’m going to be expediting the order or sneaking out with a floor sample under my sweater.

I’ve got an appointment at Demetrios (http://www.demetriosbride.com/) this week. I need you to send me “FIND THE DRESS” vibes.  I have a good gut feeling- they came highly recommended & from the little poking around I’ve done on the website, I actually have hope.

To be continued…hopefully in a celebratory “I FOUND A DRESS” blog.
