Ok so 13 individual stores and a couple visit back to the same stores. Yes I am an undecisive person, but really... really... it's not because I'm indecisive..
Let me tell you about my wedding dress story. I have two weddings... one in LA in September 2011. and another one in another country in December 2011. My wedding in LA is at an art Museum, it's an outdoor wedding for 150 guests. My other wedding is in a hotel ballroom for 1000 guests. (Really that is an average to smaller guest size in my country). So anyway, my grandma wants me to get two dresses. You can't wear the same dress twice, don't ask me why.. it's some traditional thing.. So I wanted to get a mermaid style dress, more fitted to my body and all the wedding in the other country has to be big ball gown and I don't want a ballgown wedding gown for my Los Angeles wedding.
I was havign a hard time finding my dress for my LA wedding. I just can't seem to find the one. I wanted a mermaid/trumpet tulle, organza, something soft and romantic. For my second wedding, I haven't tried a lot of ball gowns..
Anyway so after 13 stores, my mom told me I can get one wedding gown for both event , partly because the mermaid dress I liked is way over my budget and it's such a waste of money. So last week she told me this and I just knew I want to get a Vera Wang..
Went to the trunk show and yay... we got the dress now :) Ok keeping the dress huss huss for now...
