Today my best friend from college Moose, her girlfriend J, my mom, and my future mother-in-law set off to Carrie’s Bridal in Atlanta to pick out my wedding dress! L and I are getting married next September. Sometimes it feels like years away, but when I’m looking at my to-do list it seems mighty close.
Going into the bridal appointment, I had never tried on any dresses and I had NO idea what I want (except that it had to be white). I was actually a little nervous – so the mimosas helped with that! Once I got to Carrie’s Bridal, I met my consultant Courtney. I tried on six or seven dresses that were totally different. When I found *my* dress, I didn’t want to take it off. When Moose started crying, I knew I found my dress.
I’m still in shock that the giant black bag in my closet is what I’m going to wear on my wedding day. I hate that I have to keep it a secret and not show L for almost an entire year. I’m really bad at secrets.
Sound off: any other wedding advice?
