My mother, father and oldest sister all came with me to help me
Did you know exactly what you were looking for in a wedding dress?
I had no idea what I was looking for. Growing up, I had worn many gowns for various dances at school and special events as an adult so I had an idea of what cut would look alright on me. But I was willing to try pretty much anything.
How many dresses/locations had you tried before you finally found the perfect dress? My mother and I went to the Bridal Expo shortly after Mike proposed and watched a few of the fashion shows. We weren’t set on a location at the time and so we were just teasing out ideas. We ended up only going to two stores before I found my dress.
Describe the moment you realized “this is my dress.”
I should say, my sister pulled my dress for me. It wasn’t in my size but as she says, it just looked like me. I knew it was my dress because I didn’t want to take it off! It was exactly what I didn’t know I wanted.
What do you love about your dress and how does it make you feel? I feel like my dress has so many levels of detail that you can keep looking at it and find something new. Every inch is so special. It also moves so well, which was very important to me, as I plan on dancing! I had never seen anything like it.
