- Wedding: September 2013
So after months of being the girl who couldn’t find her dress, I did it!!! I’ve been staring at (drooling over) the pictures of Sottero & Midgley’s Shanna for a few weeks online, and finally tracked it down to 2 stores- one in NYC where I live, and one in New Husband, about half an hour north of my family in MA.
Last week, I got to go try on dresses in NYC with my gay best friend and his boyfriend, which was amazing. Seriously, at one point his boyfriend, pulled out the “HATES IT!” line from that SATC episode when Charlotte buys her first wedding gown. Almost fell over laughing!
I tried on Shanna with them, and I finally had the speechless/almost crying/I don’t want to try on any other dresses again ever feeling.
Today I got to go up to New Husband with my mom, sister, and aunt, and we tried on a few others, but I just knew that it was THE DRESS. So I finally said yes to my dress! I’m so in love with it, and I feel like the weight of a huge boulder has been lifted off my chest!
The photos don’t really do justice to the beauty of the gown, and it needs some alterations- kinda unflattering in a few pics, but I promise it’s spectacular in person!
(Ignore my pink bra, I thought it was tucked further in)
