I found the one. It was the 3rd one I actually tried on. I first picked out 3 or 4, but then realized the ones I picked wouldn't actually go on (stupid sample sizes) so they were just held up to me. But of course there was no way I was going to buy a dress that wasn't actually on my body!
Thankfully my consultant was amazing. She pulled the rest. I would have never picked the dress off the hanger for myself, but I knew immediately it was the one. And once she put a veil on me, it was over. She asked if I wanted to try on the others, and my answer was no. It is amazing. I can't wait until October to be able to share it with you all!
I went sort of a non-traditional way, and took my dad with my mom, my younger sister to pick it. I thought he was going to cry. I'm glad we chose to have him as part of the process. He won't see anymore of the dress or veil/hair peice I end up picking until my wedding day. And I haven't decided if I want the veil or a hair peice. I just can't decide. But at least I have some time for that.
Now I need to work on my save the dates, find a caterer (that I can afford), baker and sign the photographers contract. Then I need to pick invitations. So much to do. But the "big" stuff is almost all taken care of!
