Lauren and I headed off to Chico to try again. I had high hopes that the dress I had envisioned exsited, but after 5 dresses my faith was getting a little shaken. The women at Davids bridal were wonderful. Very helpful and attentive. The assistant asked me if I liked any of the 5 I tried on enough to buy. I said they were beautiful, but I didn't think any of them were 'the dress'. I described my dream dress to her one more time and she came back with another dress. Lauren was such a trooper. Lace, unlace, lace, unlace. It was a lot of work for her!
We took the last dress out of the bag and immediately said "Wow." I walked out of the dressing room to the podium and felt like I was walking on a cloud. My face started to turn red as I looked at it in the mirror. The assistant added the veil and the tears were flowing. I felt like a bride. "I'm getting married!" I said.
What an emotional moment. THIS WAS THE DRESS! I found the dress I've been dreaming about! I looked at Lauren who had tears in her eyes. "This dress is totally you. It looks like you! It's perfect!"
I found my dream dress and I can't wait to see Keith's face when I blow him away in it on our wedding day.
