First Dress Bride…

Wedding Dress

Well, I did it. Perhaps I’m a little presumptuous, but I did it anyway. Today I bought a wedding dress. No, today I bought MY wedding dress.

I’m not one for frills and lace and sequinds. I saw this dress online the other day and couldn’t help but let my jaw drop and hit the desktop. I’d done a Google search for “Casual wedding attire” and turned up a link to David’s Bridal’s Galina collection. When I saw it, I knew it was the one. Simple, elegant, and hopefully, affordable.

My fashion saavy roommates were called and invited to help me try everything on and to give their opinions. I couldn’t help but feel slightly nervous as I slipped into the silky gown.

“It’s 100% you!” said Ashley, who was seated comfortably on the “gallery” sofa. I voiced some concern over buying the first dress I’d tried on, but was told that when you know it’s the one, you just know.  I knew.

After a brief fashion show and sales pitch, I left the store thinking… “What have I just done?”

I had bought a wedding dress and felt for a moment like a fair maiden.  Am I nuts?
