- Wedding: October 2013
I just came home from visiting my grandparents, and they surprised me with two wonderful gifts.
First, I was showing my grandma the dresses I tried on a few weeks back, and she said “well you should really have a ceremony dress and a going away dress so you can change and be more confortable”. She looked at me like, duh this is a no brainer. I had never thought this was normal for our family so was pleasantly surprised she gave permission to get two dresses. Even better is I was worrying about telling them I was going to have two dresses as long as they are under $1000 total (I have my reception dress which cost me $550). So that weight has been lifted.
Second, my grandpa overheard me telling my grandma and mom about finding my ceremony dress during the search, and found at a boutique in Quebec for 50% off (so about $350 plus tax) the one I found here in Toronto. And he piped in, “oh we will pay for that. If you love that dress then we will buy it”. I was shocked! I didn’t even think he was listening.
I am so freaking happy right now! So dress cost is lifted off my shoulders, YAY! I know it is a reasonable price anyway, but every little bit helps!
The best part… I am going to show my mom the ceremony dress on Friday and if she loves it I will order it from the Quebec boutique and my dress shopping will be done (I already have my reception dress).
