I've been doing this dance between allowing for the time necessary to oder a wedding dress (once one was found), and giving myself a chance to lose a bit more weight before beginning that search. There are a lot of dresses out there that don't stand a chance because they don't fit to try them on, and if they don't fit to try on, you can't see what they will look like. Too much money is at stake to "wing it," on a possibility.
Last week I was driving past a bridal store on my way home from a meeting and they had a sale going on, so I thought it would be worth it to begin the process, fit or no fit. I am the size that I am, and there isn’t anything to be done about that!
So Friday I began the process, and found a few dresses that were worth consideration. Saturday my friend Debi and her daughter Sammy (a very wise 15-year old) joined me for their advice and counsel, and it was a good thing they did! Debi ended up finding the dress that we all agreed was a winner, and Sammy’s comment (as close as I can remember) was “you look beautiful, and it accentuates your best features.”
The next decision: to veil or not to veil. Debi and Sammy are encouraging me, but I’m still hesitant. Any opinions out there? The other option is flowers (or feathers—NOT!). The search for a hairstyle continues…
