Well, apparently my mom throwing out my dress and getting a dress that’s way too short is not going to stop this gal from getting married… 🙂
So yesterday, a friend and I went out to David’s Bridal in Springfield, Virginia. An hour later, I walked out with a dress in hand. I don’t need to wait for it to be ordered; it’s mine, hanging safely in my closet.
This is my dress. The greatest part is that my shoes and jewelry still match my outfit.
Thanks for all of your sweet comments. In the end I think everything worked out beautifully. I felt amazing in this dress. Completely amazing. As soon as I put it on, my best friend got all teary, saying it was better than any of the other dresses… and honestly I think it’s better than the dress my mother tossed, so there’s some solace in that. 🙂

So great. Honestly I was simultaneously excited/dreading Sunday. It seems like everyone is out buying dresses right now, and the selection was a lot smaller than it was the last time I got my dress there. The funny thing is that this dress was one I WANTED to try on, but they didn’t have it in anything close to my size the last time I was there.
