A tale of Two Dresses

I'm not usually one to stand on traditions and such, but when it came to a wedding dress, I really wanted a white one. Now I've been designing my dress, in my head, long before there was a ring on my finger. In the first incarnation, I was wearing a long strapless a-line dress with long white gloves and a ribbon choker (hey it was the 90's). Eventually a more Grecian goddess look came into my mind, with an elaborate mid section and flowing chiffon.

Now that I actually need a dress, it is a bit of a different story. After trying on a maybe 20 dresses, I finally found that I liked the big 50's tulle thing. However, due to painful incompatibility between my arms and the beaded bodices, I will not be wearing one of them, but at least I got it out of my system.

As to the real wedding dress, I found one that I like, but am hesitant to purchase it now. But good sense tells me that I should march right back to the bridal store and throw my credit card right down! I'll probably see if one of my bridesmaids is available next weekend to verify my judgement call, but more than likely, I think I may have found a dress. Scary.

And that beaded Grecian thing. I found one of those too and bought it, just in case.
