Long before dreaming of Prince Charming, we girls mentally design and redesign the perfect, most beautiful gown we will be wearing when walking down the aisle to be met by the man we will love, honor and cherish all the remaining days of our lives.
Through the years I myself had seen so many bridal dresses I’d fallen in love with. So many styles and lengths to choose from. Traditional or modern? With or without sleeves? Beads or lace? A million possible combinations. So many possibilities yet only one opportunity to get it right (I mean with such a hefty price tag and the time consumed searching, who can afford to make a mistake?) and only one night to wear it.
Surprisingly enough it took three trips to retailers for me to find my dress. Hours were not spent searching aisle after aisle either. David’s Bridal didn’t work out for me so a trip to a boutique in Los Angeles did the trick. And I must say, though I didn’t spend thousands (I didn’t spend anything at all; my sister bought my dress), I ended up with a beautiful dress that sparkled and shined.
