Yesterday was such a great day – I picked up my wedding dress! It has been a much anticipated day since I had received the phone call a few weeks back from Mariee Bridal, in Scottsdale, that they had received my dress. I waited a few weeks to go and check it out because my mom just arrived on Wednesday from Philadelphia and I wanted her to see it on me for the first time.
Prior to arriving at the shop this morning, I have had a few different feelings go in and out. Number 1, I was worried that the dress wasn’t going to fit. I haven’t been working out as much as I would have hoped I would be and definitely have not been eating the healthiest so I was a tad nervous. Number 2, I was a little uneasy that I might not have loved it as much as when I tried it on the first time. I have been seeing so many new and different styles come in and out of bridal stores and they all look so beautiful that I started to envision wearing something different. Good news in both occasions, Number 1 – the dress was actually a little too big! That put a huge smile on my face and it definitely put pizza in my stomach last night too :). Number 2 – I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my dress. It is perfect and exactly what I wanted it to be. I couldn’t be happier!
Not knowing that I would be walking out of the door full handed, I left with my dress zipped up, in a bag and now in my closet where it awaits my alteration consultations. (Not to mention a really great pair of shoes as well but that is a totally different story.)
Time is winding down and I should be able to fill you all in on a bunch of new planning details in the next few months so make sure you stay tuned.
