I found "THE DRESS"!
But was it "THE DRESS"??? How are you supposed to know if it is "THE DRESS" if you have NEVER tried on any other wedding dresses before?
Sometimes when you find something perfect for you, you need to stop looking!
I stopped by Bridal & Formal about a month after I got engaged, just to take a look around.
I wasn't planning on buying anything because I knew I wanted to have the "perfect dress experience" of shopping for my wedding dress with my mom and my sister in Memphis. (And have them applaud and cheer when I put on the perfect gown). haha!
But at that time, my trip to Memphis was months away...so my friend Sara and I just went to "look around".
The first dress that caught my eye, ended up slung over my arm and walking with me on the way to the dressing room.
It was love at first sight.
I tried it on and I immediately loved it.
I knew I had to try on a lot more to know for sure.
(That's the over analyzer in me!)
So, a few weekends ago I went to Memphis to find a wedding dress. (read about it here)
I tried on several dresses but none of them felt like "the one". I explained to the wedding dress assistant exactly what I was looking for, and I found myself explaining THIS EXACT DRESS.
And THAT'S when I knew.
And that's how I found my dress!
