I found my wedding dress.

I did not cry, but I got a little choked up.

Because I finally found "The one."

My mother likes it. My mother-in-law liked it. My friend/bridesmaid liked it. It fit like a glove and makes me look slimmer. It didn't feel costume-y. It doesn't look like anything else I've ever put on. And I liked it. I felt like it was a dress that would make HTB cry when he sees it.

And it's not a dress that a lot of girls try on, the salesgirl said. It comes in 55 different trim colors, I tried it on in ivory and black. A gorgeous dress, but I'm not daring enough to go for color like that, so I chose champagne trim. The girl said other girls aren't willing to think past the bold brights and want to see it in a neutral. I guess I'm more willing to go on faith that if it was stunning in black, it would be gorgeous in champagne. And I like that 900 people won't wear my exact dress this year. I want to be a bit different, and this is different without wierdness or costumery.

And so I have my dress. And I can't bear to wait 10 to 12 weeks for it to come in, LOL. But, 10-12 weeks will put me at the end of may, less than 5 months from the big day, and, since I told HTB last night, I can't wait to get married, this is something I can look forward to, knowing I'll be that much closer to "the day."

Rachel, what a beautiful beautiful dress. I love it. The back is very striking. You will look stunning in it. Congratulations.
I have two sons but my second DIL let me go bridal dress shopping with her. It was such fun. I cherish that she allowed me that opportunity.

Oh, wow!!! It is beautiful. I think the champagne trim will be very classy. My SIL had an ivory dress with champagne accessories--shawl, etc--and it looked really sharp. My dress was Alfred Angelo, too, if I recall correctly! I can't wait to see pics of you in your dress, taken on the big day. :)

Your dress is gorgeous! I am so excited for you. You will be a beautiful bride!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
