Before I go posting pictures and posts all willy nilly about accessories, I want to share a little about my dress.
I had wanted a non-white wedding dress when I first started thinking about getting my wedding gown. I wasn't sure whether I wanted yellow or purple but I found some Vera Wangs that got me in the mindset.
I walked in with my father, mother and fiance. They let my mom bring her dog in her pup stroller! As always, the HiLLjO-sized section looked bleak. I grabbed one out of that then went to a rack of my-size samples they had just gotten from a show. We tried on a bunch, some were pretty and some we didn't bother zipping. A couple of girls had found their dresses already since I had come into the store and they were shrieking their delight for the whole salon to hear. I looked at my mom with tears in my eyes "Mommy, I want my wedding dress." She hugged me, said "We'll get it. Let's go get that broad out there," and out we went again. I told her I was looking for a lightweight trumpet style and she took me over to the sample rack. She described one I had in the room and had no luck with. I sighed and threw my head back in exasperation.
Would I have to make it?
All be damned if two things didn't happen:
1)I understand what deja vu is and 2)I cried. Deja vu is where you dream about something happening and then it happens when you're awake. The feeling is the remembering. This dress I remembered... from my dream! I told my mom "I know this is the one. I'm crying. I only want to see it all at once." I stopped looking even though I already knew and she finished the tying so we walked out to show our guys. I couldn't stop smiling the dress even felt good on. My dad says "She likes this one, look at her face," to Shawn. I got in front of the mirror and the magic happened.
