- Wedding: July 2012
OK! So I am sending out my “will you be my bridesmaids cards”next month and with the cards, I wanted to send a photo of the dress they would be wearing that day. So my mom and I go to the store so that I can put on the dress and take some pictures…. Tried on the dress, I loved them, took the pictures so I was good. In the meantime, my mom goes MIA and starts looking at the bridal gowns. When I “found” her, she was like “why don’t you try on some dresses for yourself… Mind you, I wasn’t going to start “looking” until March of this year AFTER I made some progress with my workout… so I said since I am already here, I will try on a few. I picked out two and my mom picked out one… I tried on the first one and I liked it but I didn’t LOVE it… I tried on my mother’s dress second and of course SHE LOVED it, but I couldn’t get the full affect because it wasn’t in white so it blended in with my skintone (it was like a cream) AND it was SUPER heavy. THEN I tried on the last one and THAT WAS THE ONE!!!! I never thought that I would get that feeling like I see on t.v….. like on say yes to the dress…. but I REALLY did… and when she put the veil on me and I put it over my face.. IT WAS SOOOO REAL!!! It finally hit me that I was finally getting married and to a wonderful man…. very emotional.
NEEDLESS TO SAY, I GOT MY DRESS!!!! and was NOT planning on it as my wedding isn’t until 7-7-12… I am so glad that I am good at sticking with decisions… because once I get something I do not keep going back looking for something else… so no more dress trying on for me….
SO, tell me what yall think!!! The first few photos are pics of my dress, and then the next pics are for BM/MOH..
Oh, and I thought shopping for a wedding that’s next year was weird….but a bride was in there and her wedding wasn’t until December 2013 and she purchased her dress also… made me feel a lot better, lol!!!
SUPER EXCITED!!! Now when I go to the gym and work out, I REALLY have motivation!!!!!
