Making Memories on a Saturday in May

imageMy youngest daughter is getting married in the Fall . . .

so she and I visited bridal shops on Saturday.


If you had been along for the ride – you’d have seen me get all teary as my girl tried-on wedding dresses. (Maybe you would have laughed!)

In any case, you’d have to admit she looked like a princess once she put on a veil . . .

If you knew her, you might have looked at her on Saturday and wondered how the bubbly little blonde girl you remember – so clearly – could have turned overnight into the radiant young woman standing at the mirror.


If you had been there with us, you would have smiled in amusement and then laughed out loud as you watched her antics “testing” how the dress would feel on her big day . . .

* She took a stroll around the room to check how easily she could maneuver and negotiate curves in a full skirt and train.

* Next, she gracefully sat on a chair to get a sense of how comfortable it would be.

* Then, while shooting me a great big grin, she broke into a little jig. After all, a bride wants to be sure she’s able to dance the night away!

My daughter and I did and it was great fun! We had a choice to go “natural” or “dramatic”. We chose dramatic just to see the results!


If you had come along with us, you would already know what I’m going to say next.

We were carrying parcels when we left the bridal shop – she had chosen her wedding gown.

Or as they say on the TV show . . . she said “yes” to the dress!



I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  2. Hi Carol πŸ™‚
    We would have spent a little time checking the mother of the bride dresses if we hadn’t been offered the makeup gal’s expertise! By the time that was finished, we had to get going – the guys were home waiting and it was the dinner hour. But, soon!!! xoxo

  3. Awwww! I am so glad you were there to say “I Bless” to the Dress! It will definitely always be a great day to remember. Xoxoxoxoo!

  4. Whatever I was going to write just flew right out of my head after I read what Youngest Daughter wrote. I’m still blinking away tears! I’m so happy for you guys! xoxo

  5. I’m so glad you got to go with you daughter to pick out her dress. That was one of the best times during the planning of my wedding. I wish your daughter all the best. Let us know how all the planning is going. It is hard to believe it will be 28 years in August. Have a wonderful time this summer.

  6. Hi Kelly! πŸ˜€
    Sending (early) best wishes to you and hubby for your upcoming 28th wedding anniversary!!! As you may remember….. you and I and Carol and Clenna all have our anniversaries very close together. It will be the 44th for Carol and the 44th for me, too! And it’s the 46th for Clenna!

    The wedding plans for my daughter are in full swing now. We are especially excited that many family members from out of state are coming. It will be so heartwarming to see them on such a happy occasion.
