MORE Dress Indecision?!

Hi, I’m Miss Dragon and I’m horrible at making decisions.

I had to try on my veil with my dress in order to know if I liked them together. So, out came the dress, which I’ve been avoiding since the last time I tried it on and felt terrible. Two things to note: I bought a handheld steamer and de-wrinkled the dress prior to trying it on, and my weight-loss efforts have netted me zero weight loss and a bit of weight gain, namely because I really haven’t tried, at all.

Bizarrely, the combination of those two things made me really like my dress this time around!



The cats are very excited that the door to the forbidden room is open.

It just”¦fit. Perfectly. The waist didn’t look horrible, the back didn’t gap anymore, there were no issues with the bust. I actually felt excited looking in the mirror with my dress and veil on!

But, I thought I should try it on with the lace top too, because I liked it so much last time.


But this time, with the lace top and the veil, I felt kinda dumpy and big. It felt like too much draping, too much flowing, not enough shape.

So now I’m back to square one. I’m leaning toward the dress, just the dress—no lace top, no sash, just jewelry and my veil to make things shine. Maybe a fuzzy cardigan for if it gets chilly later on in the day. Simple.

But everyone loved the lace top the first time around (even me!), so I’m willing to hear opinions!

And while I was playing dress-up, I figured I should show you guys the rehearsal dress you all loved, this time on me and not the hanger:


Super short!! I ordered some yellow tights, but if it’s too hot for that I’m going to have to find a slip.

Is anyone else indecisive like me? How do you know if you’ve made the right choice?

    Lovely! I giggled at the cats comment, because I have a bridesmaid dress hidden in a closet (with tons of stuff piled against the door since the cats can open the door), and worry about the day I have to hide my own dress from them. I just know they’ll be dying to get into that room/closet!

    So strange, I was all Team Lace Top last time, but now I don’t like it so much anymore. Still love your dress though and I love your rehearsal dinner dress too! So cute!

    I was one of those big supporters of the lace top, but now that I’m seeing the dress with the veil, I don’t think you need it! I’m voting for dress, veil, and jewelry for a little sparkle.

    @Mrs. Genie: I just bought a pair of wedges that I hope work out! :)
    @Miss Treasure: I love it too — I bought it for that, but then my sister offered me her pearl necklace as my something borrowed. I might try using the borrowed necklace as a bracelet or something, though!

    LOVE the rehearsal option. i think no lace top – and a cardi would be great because you’d still be able to see the top of the gown!

    I love both, but not together… how about the veil for the ceremony and then when you change into your hair flower later the lace top won’t look like too much if it gets chilly later on.

    That way you get to wear everything! x

    I agree with you, Miss D! I loved the blouse last time, but it just doesn’t have the same magic as your dress does on it’s own. I am totally in love with how it looks on you as is! And the veil is perfection!

    Looks great!! I think the key is making sure that the defining band around your waist is visible! I would definitely not cover that up with the loose lace top.

    I would wear the veil w/o the lace top for the ceremony and then switch it up for the reception and add the lace top and take off the veil. The best for both worlds.

    And I am w/ you on being indecisive!! It takes hours to make the smallest decisions sometimes.

    I was one of the bees that LOVED the lace top with your dress, but I think with the veil, I’d go without. The dress is beautiful and classic and doesn’t need anything else. A pretty necklace and perhaps a fun cardigan for the evening, but I really feel it’s perfect as is =)

    I think some statement jewelry that really represents you would be the best choice.

    Like just about everyone else… no lace top!
    I love your rehearsal dress and I say no yellow tights. It looks amazing on you as is. Maybe pair it with yellow flats?

    I LOVE your rehearsal dress. It’s ADORABLE.

    Also, I think the second dress doesn’t need the veil if you decided to go with it.
