Yay! Congratulations!  Finding the perfect dress is amazing.  ๐Ÿ˜€

If you are worred about not getting a great deal, or FH is upset that you bought something you can’t wear again, just remind him that you can always sell it after the wedding – Maggie dresses have a pretty high resale value.

You can most def get some of the money back after the wedding. It’s gorgeous!

And I don’t think your FI will have any issues once he sees you in it! Can’t wait to see pics! The hardest part is…if it’s just gonna be you two…gonna be kind of hard to hide it from him til the wedding day. Or are you gonna let him see?

I think a low veil will look fantastic with that dress.  It’s so romantic, and I think a low veil conveys that kind of feeling as well. 

I will say, though, that not everyone can pull off such a veil so give yourself the freedom to try on other styles too. The point is to find something in which *you* look beautiful, not an ensemble that looks beautiful *on you*.  I think sometimes people miss that…but it sounds like you’re already feeling wonderful which is an amazing thing.

Mizuno, that dress is AMAZING!  I love the bodice and especially the crumb-catcher detail.  I think alabaster is the perfect color choice, too.  Like you, it only took me about an hour or so at the very first bridal shop to find my dress.  :o)

Mizuno, I’d never even heard of it!  I wonder how long it’s been around.  It sounds really cool!  Are you doing it as a relay, like Hood to Coast?  Let me know if you need a cheerleader… I never need much of a reason for heading to the Keys!  :o)

Glad you’re doing it as a relay.  I see there are 50- and 100-mile individual races, too.  I can’t imagine running from Key Largo to Key West… that’s insane!!!

I’ll definitely talk to FI and see if he’s up for the drive.  If you need recommendations for things to do while in town, just ask!  :o)
