Sadie, Sadie

     …married lady!  Not quite, but everything is starting to feel so real now!  Starting yesterday, I have less than one year until I get married!  How exciting is it to say, “This is my last (insert whatever date) as a non-married!”?  Maybe that’s only fun for me…
     Anyway, as most of you know, I went dress shopping today.  This morning, my mother, sister, and I went to Ballew Bridal in Collierville to do a little exploratory browsing.  They were having a sale – always a good reason to stop and look.
DSCF2897I even made an effort to look like a real person!  Hair and make up done and everything.

…or Saltines and a Coke.  There is no way I could have let myself get hangry on this trip.

     I’m thinking that my dress inspiration post must have sent out some really good shopping zhu-zhu because…………I HAVE A DRESS!  Of course I can’t tell you what it looks like which is so difficult for me because I do not like keeping secrets.  You’ll just all have to trust me…it is incredible.  I don’t know what I’m going to do for the next year with this amazing dress just sitting in my closet (answer: go crazy and/or smile like a loon every day because I’m so excited). 
     Surprisingly, it was the first dress I tried on!  I did try on several others, but once I tried the first one on again with a veil it was all over.  It was too perfect, and the veil just makes it.  It will have to be altered, but that won’t be until probably April.  Until then, I just get to look at my perfect perfect dress as much as I want.  I kind of want to wear it every day now…but I assume this isn’t practical.  We finished the day with a Chik-fil-a lunch and headed home totally content.  My nana and my close friends have seen it, and the general consensus is love love love!  I am now in full on wedding mode.  Get ready!

How exciting!! I haven't gone dress shopping yet for my dress. I'm behind! I was really excited when I got past the year point with our date too. Our weddings will be so close! Have you picked your venue?

Isn't dress shopping fun!? I loved the feeling of trying on THE dress and just knowing. I think the dress I picked was the first one I tried on too. 1 year to go, that is super exciting.
