Worried that no one will like my dress...
I finally decided on a wedding dress about 3 weeks ago, I chose a blush pink dress with ivory lace because white and ivory all over just washed me out and made my skin look patchy! I adore my dress, both my mum and I fell in love with it as soon as we walked in the shop, my mum normally is against different but this she said was perfect for me. I was so happy for the first week but then I started to speak to my friends about my dress. I'm not telling them any details about it, only that's it's a bit different.
I started watching their faces when I mentioned the word 'different' and could see the look of horror in their faces thinking i'll be walking out in a bright purple dress or something! At first I found it quite funny, knowing how lovely my dress is, but now I've started to worry, what if no one actually likes it?
For example, my friend was mentioning my wedding colours on the day where I said i'm having mainly mint green and cream with little hints of blush pink. She said blush pink won't go and she doesn't like it. This made me angry because I feel she should of just kept quiet on her opinions! Plus blush pink and mint green go gorgeously together because I've tried it and seen it done before!
Next my aunt was talking about the chairs in the venue, I said they were a nasty pink colour mixed with yellow and I wanted to change the chairs and she said 'Oh not that horrible blush pink colour?!' I immediately wanted to cry!
Then a few days ago I was talking to my fiance trying to convince him to think about dark navy suits because it would go well with my dress. He then said, it's his choice and he will choose whatever he wants as he wants to surprise me & then went on to say "I hope your dress is white or I won't be happy!" I walked out of the room in tears so he must of known i'd gone for a different colour & he backtracked quickly and said he was only winding me up & that he's sure it looks lovely. Although a few hours later while deciding colours he said "Blush pink is too girly for our wedding!"
Feeling a bit upset about all the comments I keep getting, I know if they knew about my dress they wouldn't be saying all this but getting their opinions on it truthfully is hurting & making me worry that my fiance, bridesmaid or a guest will screw their nose up at my dress.
Is anyone else having worries about no one liking their dress even though they adore it? I don't think blush pink is THAT different, I think it's a beautiful colour! Just a bit concerned that someone will comment on it on the day and upset me really
Feeling extremely emotional about the whole wedding over the past 2 days and feeling like I don't want to do any more plans at the moment because my great nan has just passed away aged 93, I was praying for her to be at our wedding & literally kicking myself that I didn't show her my wedding dress! Will this pass? I feel so bad for not showing her & wanting to keep it a surprise and now she'll never see it! She seemed so well & it was so sudden! I'm heartbroken and now starting to worry about my grandparents and whether I should give up the surprise & show them my dress because life is so unpredictable! Suddenly getting a spot on my wedding day seems like such a pointless worry.. I hope this heartache will pass!
