Say Yes to the Dress!

Quick, important life update:

I found THE dress! My WEDDING dress!

It really is like what people say. When you know, you know. You have that reaction. I didn't expect to, especially since this was my first time ever going dress shopping, but I definitely did.

It was just my mom and I, which I was a little nervous about, but it was really great. I thought I would want more people's opinions, but the lady at the store said it's better to just have one or two people max.

I tried on about 5 dresses. One that I thought I would love, I didn't like at all on me. One that I thought I wouldn't be thrilled with was ALMOST the dress. My mom cried when she saw me in it, and I loved it. But the last one I tried on was IT. I loved it on the hanger when she pulled it out in the beginning, and I think she knew to save the best for last. She hadn't seen it on anyone yet, because it had just come in, so she was excited to see it on someone too.

Anyway, I put it on and cried as soon as I stepped out. So did my mom. I tried the other one on again, just to make sure I didn't want it. I loved it, but it just wasn't me. The one I ended up getting was very me. You'll all just have to wait a year to see what it looks like :)

One more task checked off the wedding checklist!


  1. How exciting!! Do we have a wedding date set yet?

    1. We do! September 5th of next year :) It's going to be a Friday night, but all the Saturdays were booked and we didn't want to wait til 2015. We want to be married now! Haha

  2. Congratulations! I can't wait to see pics :-) I'm so excited for this journey you're on.
