so, though i cannot speak of details...i can say that dress is exquisite. hehe (at least i think so). And i can tell u how i got it!
So i got an invite from the knot to this sale at Ever After (such a beautiful store! can't believe i got my dress there!). So i went with my mom and sister and noah, and derrick (my sister's husband) went too since he had the day off-which was great to have a guy's opinion. he was very helpful!
So we all went, thinking nothing about it (this was the first and only store i went to!!). and so i believe it was the second or third dress i tried on- i felt like a princess with all the beautiful gowns. and i just kept going back to it. so i called my cousin ellen and waited an HOUR for her to get there but i needed to have her opinion (she is my maid of honor along with my sister- yeah i'm having two maids of honor-i couldn't choose!) so everyone loved it and decided i NEEDED to have it.
So i bought it! just like that. i couldn't believe it! but the biggest critic was still to see it- my dad. he is not afraid to tell u he doesn't like something! i mean, there is no sugar coating with him. so i was a little afraid. but when i put it on for him he said he'd never seen such a beautiful dress!!!! so i am VERY happy.
here's a pic of the store
my shoes r another story: i went with my mom to Aventura a while back to look for shoes. I had my heart set on some stuart weitzmans and they have a store there. so to my dismay i found out that my feet are way to fat to fit into ANY stuart weitzman shoe. to my further dismay i fell in love with the most expensive shoes i found and they fit me like a GLOVE.
So of course i left the mall totally disappointed. and then....my beautiful friend Delfina came to the rescue!! she informed me that the shoes would go on sale for significant amount and they would magically become-AFFORDABLE! so they did go on sale and it was great! and now they are mine :D right here. by my side. sigh....
so that's the story of how i got my dress and shoes. my veil will be made by my grandmother who made my sister's beautiful gown. i'm the happiest woman in the world.
