- Wedding: June 2012
I never anticipated that I would have “the moment” in my dress. I had stated that upfront when I went shopping that the dress scoring to my closest 10/10 would be the one I chose.
I found this first dress during my first shopping trip. I didn’t think ruffles were my thing, but it looked good on me and fit my Mexico destination wedding. I was fun and underbudget. But somehow, I couldn’t shake why I couldn’t commit.
I’m pretty ruthless when it comes to eliminating dresses I know I wouldn’t like. I couldn’t believe my own MOTHER came in tune with my taste and pulled this gorgeous beauty!! It was elegant, flattering and romantic!! I felt expensive and high-class in it. When my SA put on the cathedral veil, it completed this package. Unfortunately this one was slightly overbudget (not a deal breaker). I had such a hard time saying no to this one. But in the end I felt like it only represented a PART of me. It was classy, but it wasn’t completely ME.
When I put this one on, I really liked it. Mind you I was trying to tune OUT all the compliments because I needed to sort out the thoughts in my head and my OWN opinion. I looked in the mirror and it was pretty quiet in the room. And my mom spoke softly, “My baby is grown up.”
That was the trigger.
In that moment as I looked into the mirror, I saw my face and saw myself as a 5 year old but now in a wedding dress.
I covered my eyes and that’s when I had my moment. I started to cry.
I realized that was it. I never expected to have the moment, but I got it anyway~
She is the one.
