I Said Yes To The Dress!

Where do I even begin to talk about this experience? For me, trying on dresses was something I always dreamed about. Something I just couldn’t wait for. I loved watching other people find their dream dress! But now, it was my turn and the pressure was on.

I had an idea of what I wanted my dress to look like and that’s all I could envision while at the bridal boutiques. Most dresses that I did try on were nothing like what I pictured. I had a hard time finding exactly what I envisioned.

When going to the last two bridal boutiques I was finally finding dresses I truly loved. This only made it harder for me. At one boutique there were easily four dresses that I was having a hard time deciding from. I just loved each and every one of them. They were all so different too. The one dress that I was sure was the one made everyone cry. I thought I finally had the one. Well I didn’t end up saying yes to that dress because I just needed to go to one more place and see what they had.

Right after that appointment my mom, my best friends mom, sister and I headed to the other boutique right down the road to see what they had. This store is where my sister picked her dress and where I got my past prom dresses. So it definitely was a place to check out!

When we got there I walked straight back and picked up two dresses to try on. They caught my eye and it was the exact style I had been looking for. When I put the first dress on I just knew. This was it. You really do just have a certain feeling when you find your dress. It was what I was waiting for. You couldn’t slap that smile off my face. img_3112

Shortly after all the smiles the tears came. Happy tears for sure. It was in that moment that I knew I found the one. After you put on a veil with the dress, it definitely solidifies everything.

I didn’t purchase the dress that night because I wanted to bring my fiancés mom back to see the dress before I was totally ready to say yes.

The day we went back there were a ton of girls trying on prom dresses. Well when I officially said yes to the dress one of the employees had me stand on the runway in the middle of the store and shouted out that I said yes to the dress. Talk about all eyes on you! Everyone started clapping and my mom started bawling in tears.

I am so in love with the dress I picked and it’s everything I envisioned and more! I can’t wait to walk down the aisle and see Nathan’s face when he sees me in it for the first time.
