*I have changed my mind 3 times since planning; guest list, invitations & venue. I will be posting about these decision changes again.
While vacationing in the Philippines, I needed to go shopping for a formal dress to wear to a cousin’s wedding. In the shopping center though, I wasn’t expecting to see such a broad array of wedding gowns, and since I was shopping with my mom, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to look.
Even though I had bought a dress earlier (see here), while shopping I got sucked into the idea of a fancy gown to wear when I pledge to love him for the rest of my life. And everything there was so affordable! Dresses that would cost thousands of dollars in the US, were $300 and the dress that I eventually bought ended up costing $88.
As much as I loved my original dress, and the Converse Chuck Taylors, DIY side swept hairstyle and Lip Smackers lip gloss I was going to wear with it; the idea of getting all dolled up with a ball gown and full face of make-up was really tempting once I saw that dress! In all the planning for this wedding, I’ve noticed how no matter how casual a wedding was; the bride was always the most glamorous person in the room.
So instead of being a slightly dressed up version of myself as I originally planned, I will be wearing a dress that I WILL only be wearing once.
