    I was so apprehensive about the whole dress shopping experience, but not only did I find the dress, I am buying it this weekend.

    Yay!

              Ok here is the pic and the story.

              I found this dress at my first store on my first trip dress shopping. It immediately felt right, and I even tried it on twice. But since it was my first trip I felt like I should go look around some more to see what else was out there. I knew this dress would be in the running no matter what else I found, so I made an appt to take my Mom to see it this weekend when she was going to visit.

              Well, since that time my Mom died very suddenly. But, while she was in the hospital I was able to show her this picture. Afterwards I decided I didn't want to look around at anything else, because my Mom had seen this dress so somehow it was meant to be. Though my Mom wont be there when I actually get married, she did get to see me in my wedding dress which makes me smile.

                Oh sweetie - what a story! You look absolutely amazing in that dress - it fits you perfect. What a nice memory you will have to hang onto when you wear it too - that your mom saw you in that dress. I'm sure she will be smiling down on you on your wedding day. *HUGS*

                  I am so sorry to hear about your mom. The dress looks beautiful and the fact that mom was able to see it (on you) makes it that much more special. Congratulations, which are bitter sweet.

                      The dress is perfect on you, and knowing your mom was able to see her "little girl" in it... that is priceless. I wouldn't do it any other way! Congrats to the dress and your angel is looking at you everyday.
