Wedding Days: The First Dress Search

I've been looking at wedding dresses long before I became engaged last month. In fact, I'm pretty sure I have pages of dresses floating around that I tore out of magazines while I was still in my teens. Let's just say my personal tastes have shifted dramatically from what I thought I wanted then, to what I think I want now.

Last week, my mom and I made a few impromptu trips to local bridal shops. While I found several dresses I thought I liked, photos of me wearing them quickly changed my mind. In all honesty, if I could fit into my mom's dress a little better, I would wear hers. The only thing really stopping me is my wide shoulders...everything fits and zips up just fine, I just can't raise my arms. It definitely wouldn't work because I fully expect to shed some tears of joy and there's no way I'd be able to dab them away unless I have a personal tear-dabber at my disposal. I also would need someone to feed me. So with that idea scrapped, I am searching for "the one." I haven't found it yet, but my fiancé seems to think that I'll find it tomorrow when I venture out with my mom and seester in the morning. We shall see.

I'm hopeful about our first stop, but the appointment I have at the wedding suite at Nordstrom isn't exactly giving me the warm and fuzzies based on the dresses I've seen online. Only time will tell! I'm greatly looking forward to spending some quality time with my mom and sis and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I find that special dress that makes me feel like a beautiful bride and suits my style. Wish me luck!
