i have it. wedding. dress. fever.
i went up to duluth this past weekend and tried on three dresses with my mother. i thought it was really rather awkward - all the under garments - the weight of the dresses - wearing something that fancy! it was still fun though....
when i got back home i looked up a few local wedding shops and put them on a list to check out. tuesday night i found myself in one of them - alone - having a blast! i tried on a ton of dresses and put a few on my favorites list. then today i went to another shop and made a list of dresses i wanted to try on there and then made an appointment for tomorrow (they closed at six tonight and i didn't get there until quarter after 5).
so....tomorrow i'm having my bridesmaid kristin tag along with me to try on more dresses and have her give some feedback. oh - and on top of that i made an appointment with yet another shop for this saturday afternoon. unfortunately the friend i wanted to bring will be unavailable so it looks as though i'm going it alone.....but that's okay. i'll narrow down the selection and then when my mom comes down we can possibly pick the one!
one more thing - on the way back from the shop tonight i had to stop by the jewelry store and see how my ring was coming along. he showed me the stones and they looked beautiful! he said the ring should be ready by the end of next week! Eeeee!
the girl who once shunned fancy jewels and big weddings has now turned into the shiny sparkly princess....
i thought i was immune to wedding fever - turns out i was oh-so-wrong!
p.s. i would have included a few pictures of some dresses i like but i don't want chris to have any idea what i'll be wearing :) if you're curious just e-mail me and i'll send ya the pics :)
