    So I went back and forth about if I should wear my wedding dress or not for the TTD session. My mom isn't ablt to go to Jamaica, but she will be coming to our AHR, so I really didn't want to wear my wedding dress for the TTD, so I started looking for another dress.

    I wanted something similar to my wedding dress and came accross a halter which is like my wedding dress, of course I didn't have the money at the time to buy it. So I continued to check on it online and after that first time I saw it, it was never available in ivory again. The only colors available were red and blue. I was devestated. I went to Dillards to see if they carry it in the store and they carried Betsey & Adams dresses, but not the ivory halter I was looking for.

    I didn't know what to do, so I put it on the back burner for awhile. I came accross a VS catalog and saw a cotton long white halter dress for $39 I decided to get it as I knew if it woudn't work for the TTD that I could wear it to dinner one night. I bought the dress, and loved it. After I tried the dress on I knew I couldn't wear it in the water because it was cotton, but I decided to wear the cotton dress for y AHR since it is more casual and wear my actual wedding dress to trash. I felt good with the decision I made and then...

    I happened to be going through my favorite websites and I said, let me delete this since I have it worked out now, but I'll check one last time and what did you know, the dress was available in only ivory and in my size...

    I was excited...I just got it today and love it :0)

    Sorry for the long story but I wanted you ladies to know that patience is a virtue.

                    Great dress! I love the detail at the waist. Plus, the flowy style will look great in the water:) The VS dress will be so fun to throw on while you're in Jamaica too. Good picks!
                    Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end.
