My favorite wedding detail...


It's something some girls dream about their whole life.  I remember flapping page corners over as a little girl  gawking over some of the most beautiful white dresses in the entire world.  The detail, the poof, lace, silk, everything about them, beautiful.  I never thought the time would come when I would get to be a bride... and its here.  Although I am keeping the dress a secret - mainly because TL always hears things "through the grapevine" - I still want to share with you how amazing it feels to have the right one.  It's kind of similar to how it felt when I met TL - its just the perfect fit.  
You see, its more than just a simple dress we wear for an everyday occasion.  It is the dress that will change my name, open up a new chapter in my life, and most importantly, make me a wife.  
Yesterday was my first dress 'try-on' session with my actual dress that the designer made.  The one I tried on before was the one that the model wore, so it was quite long on me.  Putting it on gave me chills.  I feel fashionable and chic,  I've never felt so beautiful.  I think that is the perfect way to have a dress make you feel. 
I have such beautiful memories of picking it out - we went to bridal galleria in San Francisco, and a gal there had picked out 10 dress, and it was the first one I tried on.  I had a hard time leaving the store because I didn't want to leave it.  It was during one of their trunk shows, so the dress was leaving the next day for its stops around the country.  I had my mom, dad, Juju, Jenny, Adrianna there with me - and it was so special.  One of the most memorable days ever.
So - I want to know... what did your dress look like?  How did it make you feel?  Do you remember picking it out?  If you're not married, do you know what style you want?  
PS. This dress, found here, is not mine! :)

How lovely that you have such special memories of your day and that you were surrounded by people special to you. I looked for months for mine and then I saw it in a magazine and just knew it was the right one. The designer who made it was hours away from London so all my appts were by myself - no one saw it until I collected it months later! I do love that moment in the movies where the brides comes out of the fitting room and everyone cries cos it's the right dress!!
Am sure you will look beautiful in yours....what a fun time this is.
