took the plunge
I took the plunge!!! I ordered my dress.... A few weeks ago LOL. And, since ordering my dress my anxiety level has gone thru the roof!! I heard about dressilyme me after coming across them in a blog I believe on weddingbee earlier last year. I found a dress I liked at DB, but I wanted a corset back as well as a longer train. It made no sense to buy the dress and then have to alter it (can you even make a train longer on that dress anyway?) So my search lead me to two companies: Jasmines bridal shop and dressilyme. After considering having a custom dress made and inquiring, I decided to go with dressilyme. And that's when the obsessive sickness began. I was afraid, and still am afraid since I haven't actually seen my finished dress as yet! So after going back and forth, requesting pictures, and asking questions, I continued doing research... Reading customer reviews, etc. My original plan was to order my dress in November, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I was delayed by a month. And then on December 18th I made up my mind. But I had a few more questions for dressilyme. I asked them. And they usually responded the following morning between 1am and 3 am. On the 20th of December I held my breath, and placed my order. And on Dec 21st my order was in "processing." And so since then anxiety. Pure, unrelenting anxiety. The voices... Maybe - shouldn't have ordered from an online shop... In china. I know better. The silence ended on Monday 13th Jan, when I got an email from them at 11pm saying that my order had shipped, with a delivery date of Fri Jan 17th. And my once daily obsessions of going on to their fb page intensified to 5x+ a day. My fiance has been trying to calm me down since. On occasions I've said "babes, what if my dress is actually a package filled with cloth?" or " what if the dress is all wrong?" He has tried to calm my mind. God bless him. Honestly, when I submitted my order I left it all in God's hands. I asked him to bless the seamstress' hands, in such a way that the dress comes out awesome! Today is Jan 17th, and I cannot wait for that fedex truck to appear. I am literally looking outside my window as I type this! I just gotta remember to breathe! Either way, the anxiety is almost over! Hopefully I managed to save some money though! I will post pictures of the dress when it arrives. Fingers crossed!!! P.S. Since being told that was dress was shipped on Monday, I have been tracking it like it was my job. The dress has been to china, japan, hawaii, cali, TN, and is now in NY. Back to looking out my window.
