This is the story of our bride’s search for this wedding dress!” How did she do?
Like many brides in the midst of wedding planning, our bride began her search for the dress by skimming through bridal magazines until she found the wedding dress of her dreams. She begins to imagine herself putting this dress on for her wedding day, and walking down the aisle to meet her groom. She imagines the look on her groom’s face when he sees her in this dress, and she imagines herself dancing the night away, all in this dress.
And so began the hunt for “this dress.” After what seemed like many endless days of shopping expeditions, the bride found a salon that had the dress and she quickly tried it on. She looked in the mirror, caught her breath and said, “Yes, this is my dress.” She modeled it, spinning and twirling to show every detail of the dress. Everyone loved it until mom asked the dreaded question, “How much is it?” And that’s when our bride’s vision and dreams came to a screeching halt.
True story? Yes indeed, but don’t worry; our bride’s story has a happy ending. Our bride decided to shop around some more with the hopes of finding a dress. Being very conscious of the wedding dress budget, she visited some of the less expensive bridal stores and boutique-like salons. She was also flexible about variations in style, color, fabric and design, and guess what? She found “the dress” and the wedding day dream became real again.
What do you think? I think she did pretty darn well but the most important thing was that she was happy.
