- Wedding: May 2016
When I was a girl, my mother and I would often sew, and when I was a teenager I had already picked out the “perfect” pattern for a wedding dress, someday. Things don’t always turn out as we’ve planned. Sometimes they turn out better!
When I finally found the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with, I started looking at dresses in excitement. Just as the universe had brought Robert and I together, I think it brought me to Light in dreaming dress too.
It had been more than 20 years since I had found that “perfect” pattern for a wedding dress, and I still had it, but I truly felt I would regret not buying this one I was so drawn to.
I thought about tradition, and that maybe I should order a traditional color. I pictured the dress in white, and it just didn’t have the same pull. My cousin was about to get married in India and she wasn’t going to wear white, so I began learning about other culture’s traditions. After Robert and I asked the priest who was going to marry us about the color, and he approved, there was no turning back!
I was skeptical about ordering a dress rather than making my own. I’m almost 6 inches taller than the model, but I followed the directions on taking measurements, and when the dress arrived it was perfect! I was so happy that everything fit. I hadn’t decided on shoes until I received the dress, but it really was made for two inch heels. I left the dress hanging on on a hanger for an entire 6 weeks, but it was packed well and would have been fine if it was only a couple days. The only thing I really had to do before the wedding, where the dress was concerned, was have someone zip me up! 🙂
I believe the most important people in a wedding, are the people getting married. On Oct 26, 2015, I married the man I love, in a dress I love, in a color I love.
Thank you 🙂
