Maddie Tries on Wedding Dress and Her Fear Comes True
Here comes the stressed-out bride.
I still have several months before crunch time, but I decided to try on my wedding dress the other day when I stopped by my parents’ house. Keep in mind, I bought this dress in August of 2019 for my original wedding date in November of 2020, so I haven’t laid my eyes on my gown in over a year. I missed her.
My mother and I carefully took it out of the protective bag, I shimmied my way into it, and when I went to zip the back of the dress, my worst fear came true.
The dress didn’t fit anymore.
I guess I had a little too much fun during the pandemic. To be clear, I’m content with my body, but the boutique where I bought my gown does not accept returns. If I could just get a bigger size, I would, but now I’m stuck with a tiny problem: the waistline of my gown.
My brain started rattling off the list of expenses that could potentially be coming my way. I may have to get an entirely new dress, and my bank account would not take that lightly.
I have plenty of time to start making healthier decisions and get down to a goal weight for my big day, but what if mother nature has spoken and this is the size I’m supposed to be now? You can always get a dress taken in, but you can’t add to a dress.
Or can you?
