Yes To The Dress

In April I said, "Yes to the dress!"

Yesterday, I was able to go pick up my dress (It takes a while to order those things!).

While waiting to use the rest room at the bridal shop I chatted with a woman who was there to watch her future daughter-in-law try on dresses. The woman was really sweet and she kept referencing "Say yes to the dress!" ...You know the TV show where women spend thousands and thousands of dollars on a dress?

Well, It got me thinking that for me trying on dresses was nothing like it seems on the TV show.

It was fun, don't get me wrong... But it also was stressful!

I remember walking into the first shop we went to and instantly feeling sick to my stomach.

The sheer number of dresses is so overwhelming. The millions of styles of dresses is overwhelming! 

Also, trying on dresses makes this lady HOT! I was roasting!

I ended up finding the dress "of my dreams" at an adorable bridal shop on the second time around.

My advice: Every dress is beautiful in its own way. If you don't feel the water works or "the feeling" its probably because it is possible there are millions of dresses that could be "the one".

Have fun shopping and pick one that you think is beautiful, comfortable, and your style!
