Wow, That Was Fast!

I still cannot believe it!
I have my wedding dress! I really thought I would wait, and look around a bit before I bought it but, when I tried it on, I fell in love with it.
I wish I could tell/show you what it looks like, but I know Jeremie frequents my blog and I wouldn't want to ruin it for him! Lol!
Unfortunatly, I don't have it with me. We've ordered the dress and as it's coming from China will take up to a good six months.
It was almost surreal trying on my first wedding dress - - every little girl dreams of the wedding, then it's the dress.
We watch movies, look at magazines and dress up dolls waiting for the day we can put on our own.
My mother said the same thing, how the first few dresses she was too suprised to really have a reaction.
"I stil see you as this chubby little baby!"

It was amazing for me, but I can only imagine what it must be like for my Mom and Dad, they've bought their daughters their wedding dresses. I know it must be a wonderful but hard thing to do as well.
It was a blessing to have my Dad there, and to be with me when I chose my dress.
My sister is my Matron of Honour and of course I wanted my Mother there, but my Dad had never been in a wedding dress store before - so it was a whole new expierence for him, but I'm pretty sure he enjoyed it!

I am going in today to get my measurements and finish the order, then I have a grueling 6 months to wait before I see my dress again.
But as the woman at the dress shop said: "You can come visit the original whenever you want!"
Lol, I don't know if I'll go to visit my dress..but who knows! I just might! ^.^

I've decided to wear bright red shoes under my dress, for no perticular reason other then I love red and I think it would be fun to wear bright shoes under my gown.
I haven't picked a vail yet, but I still have lots of time.

After the dress shop I'll hopefully be meeting up with Nessa and then possibly going out for Chinese food with the family! Yay!

Well, I better get going! Lot's to do today!

What a wonderful day you had! It will be one of those that is recorded and told to your children and grandchildren!
The veil...it is the crowning glory! My DIL's veil and tiera cost as much as the dress (almost). Her parents were not at all involved in the wedding (they showed up in shorts and t-shirts and sat in the back pew staring daggers and left as soon as Rachel's grandparents walked her down the isle.) They have never even seen our Grandson and will probably never see this new one. You are blessed to have loving parents.
You will be a BEAUUUUTIFUL bride Jen!

I am so pleased that you found the dress. It is amazing that when the time is right - god puts osmething so simple in front of us to tell us.
My dd found her dress at her first shop. It wasn't even a bridal shop!
I will keep you in my prayers for your preparation for marriage.
I hope you don't mind if I follow your blog along the way.
Your southern neighbor- also living in cold weather!
