Maybe we could start with “When I first looked in the mirror…”
When I first looked in the mirror, I was shocked and too preoccupied with working out how I should be feeling to register any proper thoughts at all. After a few minutes I thought, “Wow, I look like those brides in magazines, but not quiiiiite as slim or attractive,” ha ha!

I was blown away by my first dress (it’s actually still in the running for now). Everything just felt so real being in a bridal gown. I think I just stared at myself for awhile marvelling at how amazing I looked. That’s probably one of the times I’ve felt the most beautiful in my life. Those gowns can really make you look fabulous. Of course after that intial wonder wore off it’s been a lot of agony trying to decide on the perfect gown and taking price into consideration.

Ha, I remember looking in the mirror and thinking “Oh my god I’m actually getting married, this is really happenning!”
Good thing that my SILs were there. I was so distracted by the thought that everything was finally coming together to notice how awful the dress looked. Friends don’t let friends buy ugly dresses.

I was scared or weirded out. I didn’t want to do it. That feeling started when I woke up, knowing I had the appointment. Then it was all surreal and like I was doing it, but not for the reason I was doing it. Does that make sense? But when the consultant started talking about how to walk down the aisle with my Dad, I burst into tears and knew I was a bride. I don’t even remember the dress I was wearing at the time.
