Dress(less) Distress

I'm not sure how to tell you this, so I'll just go ahead and say it:  I don't have a wedding dress. 

With a month to go, I fear that I may end up walking down the aisle in the nude, like girlfriend up there.  

You may be asking, how did this happen?

Well, it's a long story and I can't get into the nitty gritty of it.  So I will tell you that there was an issue with the order, a miscommunication, that resulted in a less than perfect dress.  Yes, I could have worn it but I would have hated it.  I would have resented the store and myself for playing nice and being too polite about something as important as my wedding dress.  So I complained about my dress and pointed out the mistake.  There was an emergency fitting, and a conversation between a manager and myself and *POOF*..."look mom, no dress!"  And for the record, there are no hard feelings with the salon, I know a ton of people that have had amazing experiences with them.    

That being said, I should feel like this right now:

But I'm too busy looking for replacements.  It looks like I'm going to have to purchase a sample and make it work!

I'm strangely confident that I will be able to find a dress that makes me smile (that's within my budget) and ready in time for the wedding.  In fact, I'm going to take this on like a challenge!  With one month to go, I'm back at square one, determined to find my dream dress.  Will it be possible for me to keep my cool and find a gown without too many tears shed?  

We'll see!
