- Wedding: November 2012
David’s announced their clearance sale last Friday, so Fiance and I decided to go on the hunt for party dresses. With two formal nights on the cruise plus our formal dinner after the wedding, we can use all of the dresses we can find. Anyway–when i walked in out of the corner of my eye, I saw a dress that I thought had all but disappeared two years ago. Three years ago I was one of those bees who knew the engagement was coming, but wasn’t official, but was looking at dresses anyway. When I saw it three years ago I knew it was the one and when I saw it the other day it was still the one.
Of course the one in the store was not my size at all, but it was marked down $1,000 so I asked my consultant to check the system and low and behold there was one by my Mom’s house…8 hours from where I live. I paid for it without trying it on and at 8 PM Fiance and I left our home in New England and arrived at my Mom’s at 4:30 AM for our 11AM appointment. My dress is absolustely gorgeous and I am so excited to call it mine. Of course, the catch to all of this is that it is two sizes too small, but I have 16 months to make it fit.
