- Wedding: March 2012
I am happy to announce that I got to bring my dress home today. It was the first time I had gotten to see or try it on since November, and I was sooo nervous because the wedding is only a couple weeks away now and I wanted it to work out. I have had to go through the dress buying experience on my own more or less but today when I went in there were a large group of mothers and daughters in the store to shop for seasonal prom dresses for their girls at the bridal shop so it was my very first “audience” so to speak. I got everything on, laced up, sash tied, and looked at myself and walked out to get infront of the 3 way mirror….the mothers and girls gasped and told me I looked drop dead gorgeous. It pretty much validated everything for me in a wonderful way, and although when I first tried on everything I didnt have an “emotional” moment, this time when I had it all on and knew I was bringing it home, everything hit me and I did have to hold back tears. It was a really special moment that I feel I really needed. Anyways… of course I will post recaps in a couple weeks, and I had posted in Nov, but here again is my dress with THE veil, THE sash, and my face is blurred because I had no makeup or anything and looked pretty much awful. lol. Thanks for reading the novel! Geez. I can’t believe I will be marrying my best friend so soon now. I feel so lucky and blessed.
