Sorry I went MIA last week. I was a little wrapped up in moving! But that will be a post for next week, I promise you! But in the meantime, let’s rewind a week and talk about my first (and only) wedding dress shopping experience.
Being that I am the actual worst at picking a dress for anything (homecomings and proms were rough), I was not excited for this one. It’s the most important dress I’ll buy.
My whole life I was so excited to go bridal gown shopping with all of my bridesmaids. But with COVID ruining hopes and dreams, I had to compromise. My mom, sister, and soon to be mother-in-law were the ones that tagged along since I could only bring three people with me. Heartbroken was an understatement. But I was still beyond thankful I could at least bring them.
I sifted through so many gowns and pulled out my favorites. Who knew what they’d look like on me though? I was so scared I’d fall in love with one on the hanger and it would look bad on me. That would be so discouraging. I’d probably call it quits right there. We went to the fitting room and I tried on dress after dress and…
I found my dress.
I literally found my dress at my first appointment! And it was only the third dress I tried on. Maybe you guys think I’m crazy. But before I even looked at myself in it, I stepped out of the fitting room and told the girls that this was the one. It just felt right.
I wish I could tell you guys all about what it looks like or even share a picture but I like the element of surprise… and Colt would kill me if he saw it early. He refuses to look at pictures and says he wants to see it for the first time when I walk down the aisle. If he doesn’t cry, I swear I’m turning around and we’re trying things again!
I’m so in love with my dress and I can’t wait for you guys to see it! Stay tuned for other wedding planning content, as it has recently consumed our lives!
