How's that for a cliche title? But yes, it's true!
Yesterday was a great day. I went dress shopping at Veronica Michaels in Spanish Fork (Utah). This shop is really special to me. I absolutely ADORE the owner, Leslie. I have been purchasing dresses from her, and practically only her, for over 5 years (we figured that out yesterday), and was so excited to be able to have that be my first wedding dress stop.
It was also really great to have 4 of my best friends there: two of my roommates (and best friends since Jr.High -- See Photo Below), my mom, and my 8 year old baby sister. Couldn't have been more perfect!
Well, I am happy to announce that I found my dream dress yesterday! It was the 2nd gown I tried on, which is ironic because my ring is actually the 2nd ring I tried on. But holy hannah, is this dress gorgeous. It's an ivory sheath gown. It's really neat because it's actually in two pieces. The lining is a gorgeous satin, and you can actually wear it on it's own if you REALLY wanted to, and the 2nd piece is a stunning lace overlay with applique and crystals. I can hardly stand how perfect it is. Leslie pinned it up to fit me like a glove, as she always does... she's amazing, is doing alterations and getting it perfect for my big day. I am seriously ecstatic.
I would post a picture of it on the sample model, but I'm afraid that Trev would see it, and I want him to be completely surprised when he sees me for the first time... we're going very traditional for this wedding of ours! So you'll all just have to wait a few months for pictures. :)
I really just wanted to share that exciting news. Usually I take a break from blogging over the weekend, but this news was too exciting to not share! Hope everyone is enjoying their last day of weekend!
