I have found and purchased my dress & shoes!
After i booked the venue, besides hyperventilating at the amount of money i put on my credit card, i booked an appointment to go back to David’s Bridal to order my dress.
I had it narrowed down to two dresses, so i thought easy peasy, pick one get measured and head home. WRONG. One of the dresses was no longer in store. And the fact that i was so upset by that, i knew that was the style of dress i wanted to have for my wedding. So we had to start the search all over again! Oi vey. My very patient consultant appeared to have super human hearing because every time she walked away, she would bring back a dress that we were talking about in her absence! She was delightful.
Unfortunately the style of dress that i was looking for, appears to be a style that’s currently not on the racks, so every dress i thought i liked was un-orderable so i would have to buy the exact dress i was trying on. Which was fine in some case, and some other cases, there’s no way that would work!
So i bought a dress, and of course it was unorderable, so i got to walk out the store that night with it! While trying on dresses my sister had pilfered the shelves to find shoes in my size, so i could be the appropriate height for dress-trying-on. And the shoes she found were just perfect! They matched the dress so well and they were adorable. So i bought those too!
The very best part of this story is that the dress was on SUPER SALE like crazy cheap! Brilliant! More money for food and booze! I’m totally rocking at this wedding planning shiz! The second best part was going to dinner after with my mom, sister and friend and the waitress overheard our excitement and brought me a free dessert as a ‘congrats on buying your wedding dress’ celebration!
Psst, look how cute:
