I have been getting quite a few questions about the progress of my planning and I have some very exciting news to report!
I bought my wedding dress and veil last Saturday!
Wedding Shoppe here in St. Paul for my very first bridal appointment. It's kind of the go-to place in the cities, and it's sort of a small yet very busy place so there was a limit to how many people could actually come with me. That was fine by me because I was beyond nervous. I barely slept the night before. My group consisted of my mom, Pete's mom, my sister Sophie, and my matron of honor Michelle.
I walked in and told my mom I was going to throw up. My mom then pointed out that that was why all the dresses were in bags.
It wasn't long before my excitement kicked in.
The dresses were so beautiful in real life! I met my consultant person Meg (who was awesome) and showed her my pictures and told her what I was looking for. I also shared my fabulous shoes which were then passed around the whole store (another post for another day!). She started pulling some dresses and we got to look at a few more to pick, so I let each person in my group pull one for me.
Every single dress I picked, including the one I have been obsessing about for months, did not look right or feel right. I knew right away which ones did not work and kept feeling like I was wearing costumes. Needless to say, there were several I did not even show my group. But it was SO fun trying on different styles and standing up on the pedestal and twirling around. I loved it.
