Last month I went home for the holidays and bought my dress while out shopping with my best friend and mom. I took my dress home and went about my life. Yesterday in the mail, I got a check for the full amount of my dress. My parents, even though they are strapped for money decided to pay for my dress. I wasn’t expecting it, I was floored and nearly in tears with happiness.
Anyone else have a great surprise in planning?

The fact that my parents offered to pay for our reception was an amazing surprise! I knew that they would help out where they could but I never expected them to pay for the reception (which is roughly half of our total wedding cost).
Also, being able to book my dream venue was a great surprise too. As much as I wanted to get married there, I didn’t even inquire because I knew how expensive their weddings were. Over the last few years I had thrown a few bridal showers there for my best friends and became friendly with the wedding coordinator at the venue. She heard we were engaged and emailed me asking if I wanted to set up a time to chat. I told her that I would love to but that they were pretty far out of our budget. She told me to come in anyway and that she would “make it work”. Well, make it work she did! We’re having a sick reception within budget!! We’re going to send her flowers after our wedding as a thank you for being so amazing.
