I had a good feeling about yesterday. I’d tried on dozens of dresses over the past few weeks and nada. Just when I was beginning to think it wouldn’t happen to me, BAM! There it was! Alfred Angelo #753. I saw a picture of it and thought “ooh, I’d like to try that one on”. Then as I was browsing online at my Mom’s house, she remarked “I’d like to see you in that one”. Then, my Maid/Matron of Honor saw it in a catalog and said “that would look very good on you!”. I almost didn’t get to try it on! It was in the back, getting ready to be shipped back for repairs since it had “battle damage”. Luckily the consultant was not only knowledgable, but accomodating as well.
I tried it on, saw the looks on Mom and MOH’s faces, then saw it in the mirror, and I knew. Not so much the thunderbolt and tears moment, more that suddenly I was standing at the alter next to my Fiance, and this is what I was wearing. I was very happy, and very, very relieved (see 2nd pic).
I had a really wonderful time dress shopping, but I am so glad that it’s over! In fact, the tears I shed were primarily tears of relief!

That looks great on you! I like the color too! And if you don’t mind me being creepy, you have really nice shoulders. Mine are kinda wide, so I really mean that as an actual compliment, not a weird backhanded one, lol

Gorgeous! Classic with a little bit of sexy! You totally wear the dress (as opposed to it wearing you). :o)

Thanks so much bees! Having the support of the hive really helped make this process easier.
@ejs: LOL thanks! I like them, too. And thanks for the comment on the color…I didn’t even know that white wouldn’t work on me until I started trying on dresses! Plus, I didn’t want to lie…:-)
@AFishCalledPuddles: (LOVE the name, btw) Thank you! That was one of my tearful moments…knowing that it looked like me.
