Wedding Dresses

 She thought this style was what she wanted...not so much
 Then the consultant brought out this one, pretty, but no....

This one is pretty, but not enough "BLING" on it....

It was an AWESOME day yesterday with my dear daughter. She tired on 12 dresses. I won't show all of them and I can't show you the ONE!! YES, she found her dress yesterday and I thought we were only going to try some on to get a "feel" for what she wanted!

When she found the DRESS, the shop has you "make a wish and RING the BELL". The bell ringing means the Bride found her DRESS. I heard it ring many times while we were there. I cried, tears of much Happiness for my girl!

Also happy that I saved a few dollars on the dress. SALE time there!  She isn't sure if she wants a veil and there is plenty of time to decide.

I can tell you that her DRESS has BLING across the bust line, is strapless and is perfect!

HAPPINESS!!!

Busy week ahead! Tomorrow is duty day, Tuesday is craft day with Jeanne, Wednesday is Dr appt for my skin, Thursday is Bible study and work night at Auntie M's and Friday is FEBRUARY!!! WOW!!

Next post is about the Valentine Heart swap!

One "Happy" MOB (mother of bride) and feeling so BLESSED!

Oh- I remember those days. They say the one that makes the Mom cry is THE DRESS. I am so happy she found it-that is a big part of the whole thing. Blessings to all of you as you work towards the wedding-xo Diana

Isn't it amazing seeing them in the dresses? Sara tried on two and bought the first one. It was on sale and to her it was perfect. We did find an amazing veil also. I cried and did all the MOB stuff and loved it! Busy week ahead here also. I'm going to finish your tags!! Hugs, Linda

So very happy to hear she found a dress so soon!! She looks pretty in the pics you took so I am anxious to see what she chose. Have a fun, busy, week!

Kim said...

What a fun day for you and your daughter. And even better that she found her dress so quickly. I can't wait to see the one she finally chose. So happy that you were able to share such a special day with her. Take care and stay safe out there on the roads over the next few days. Doesn't sound like the next few days are going to be much fun out there with rain, ice and snow.

How fun! What a wonderful rite of passage you got to experiences with your girl.
I have sons and always wanted to go dress shopping. Sigh.

Terra said...

What a thrill for you to be there with your daughter when she found the perfect dress, and to hear the bell ring.

Carol (Gingerbeary8) said...

How sweet your Daughter looks shopping for "The Dress". I guess she said "Yes, to the Dress"....lol Can you tell I watch that show when the boys aren't home!!!! How exciting. Have fun planning the wedding. The time will just fly.
Bear Hugs,

It looks like both of you had alot of fun! I can't believe she found her dress so quickly...that is wonderful! I can't wait to see the beautiful wedding pictures!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh how fun!! I am so envious that I did not get to have that experience...Mother of the groom. Glad you got a great price, seems so silly to over spend for one day especially when I don't see any difference with the dresses that cost $10,000! Have a great week!

What a special time for you and your lovely daughter. I remember doing the same when my daughter got married. I wasn't prepared for the overflow of emotion when she came out in what became "the dress". We both knew it was perfect. Enjoy all of these special times before the big day. You will think back on them over and over.
Stay warm Deb!

That is such a fun time , going shopping for a wedding dress. your daughter is pretty in all the dresses

Especially when you find the One ,

I watch that show , Say Yes To The Dress? have you all seen it

ImagiMeri said...

Oh how fun, I remember that time a few years ago with my oldest daughter. She doesn't usually share much of her life with me, so I felt totally blessed that I got to be involved. Cherish it forever girlfriend.

Hugs,
Meri

Cheryl said...

Sounds like fun times! Are you going to make her a vintage bejeweled bouquet? or is she going to have real flowers???

Joy H said...

How exciting! When is the wedding?
My son is getting married in Oct. but I bet it is more fun with the daughter. He has no clue most of the time when I ask him wedding plan questions. :)
