    Its Fate..I'm telling you ladies.

    So, a few of you may remember, last month I posted pics trying to find a particular dress. Well, someone posted a response with ANOTHER variation of the style I was looking for, and I actually completely fell in love. Only problem was..when I found the dress..it was about five hundred over my budget. My budget was pretty firm...not that kind of room to adjust, so I planned to order my second choice since I was just frustrated and thinking I just wasn't going to find a close enough version to the dream gown.

    Well, yesterday, I decide to do one last web search for the dress. At the very end of the second page, I found a Craigslist listing for the style. Now, I still wasn't holding out much hope. The dress actually comes in only two colors, one of which is the gold accent color I was looking for but had never seen anyone sell. Ladies...IT WAS THE ONE!!! And wanna know what else? Its MY size with the bridal size adjustment...and even the length should work perfectly with no alterations(she's two inches shorter than me, but wore two inch heels..unbelievable!) Just amazing.

    Theres more. She was also a destination bride! She sent me photos of her in the dress on the beach...so I'm even getting to see what it looks like in the right setting insted of just trying to use my imagination. FH is sitting here laughing at me because I am so worked up (he just doesn't get why thats important), but I am just in love with the thing all over again. The best part is, its within my budget! I'm saving six hundred dollars buying it from her as a private seller!!

    She's just the sweetest and has been so great answering my questions and sending pics. I'm just SO thankful I stumbled across her listing. It really does seem like Fate! God was looking out for me on this one.
