"A good dress will get you down the aisle. It will meet you at the intersection of romance and all-dressed-in-white tradition. But THE dress will go beyond those mere markers to illuminate you. Your beauty. Your strength. The parts of your story and spirit that make you every bit the woman you are. This isn’t about dresses, not really. It’s about the stuff inside you that makes you shine no matter what you wear. It’s the fact that, at the end of it all, the person waiting for you at the end of the aisle won’t be able to tear their eyes away because you are what they’ve been waiting for. The right dress simply allows everything about you that is lovely and true to rise to the surface. It is a thing that lights you up. The best part is that everyone else can see it too." - mywedding The Magazine
