- Wedding: October 2010
Hi ladies! Just wanted to share my wedding dress story 🙂
As a rather budget-oriented bride, I was pretty set on renting my wedding dress. My sentiment was that it’s a dress I’ll wear once (I hope!) in my life, and it’ll just collect dust in my closet after.
Well, I quickly changed my mind after my BMs and I went to the Wedding Fair and set foot in the Dress sale. Imagine a small room with 20 brides to be in wedding gowns fighting for the mirror – it was quite the sight! My friend grabbed me a dress and urged me to try it on. Now having no idea what looks good on me, or what it is that I’m looking for…I took the dress into the open change room and said why not! As I slipped on the wedding dress, the fit was really good. I excitedly walked out of the change room to show my BMs and they all gave me happy smiles.
It was perfect. The cut was modern and simple, and more importantly, it matches who I am. It really wasn’t until that point that it sunk in that I was going to get married.
Well it was the first wedding dress I tried on, and the one I ended up getting! I couldn’t be happier.
