- Wedding: May 2011
So, last time I posted I was having some dubiousness about my dress choice. And I will get back to that, promise. First, a little explaining about what brought me to putting on a wedding dress all by myself, trying desperately not get any cat hairs on it.
Recently, my Fiance got a new job. It was perfect timing, right after our engagement, and it is going to relocate us closer to my parents (which is something I’ve always wanted), not to mention a slammin pay raise. This is a good thing of course but it does come with some stressors. I love the city I’m in and the niche I have made for myself here. Moving is something that makes me sad. Throw in that we still need a place to live, I’m still looking for a job and my May wedding isn’t completely planned, and you can see why sometimes I wake up overwhelmed.
Today was a day where I woke up feeling tired, even though it’s my day off. I’ve been moping around today, not doing the bajillion things on my to do list that are piling up. You know what I did feel like doing though? Putting on my dress for the first time since the store. Great decision.
As I zipped up the back (all by myself!), and automatic smile came to my face. I didn’t get “the feeling” in the store, but I got it now. Looking at myself in the mirror, I could see why my mom was glowing as she told me that I looked beautiful in the dress. Even though this is David’s Bridal and there are a million like it, this dress was made for me. Now I feel relaxed, peaceful, and excited. I can’t wait for him to see me in it and to hold his hand as I become his wife.
