My 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!
If you had been there on Saturday, you might have taken advantage of the complimentary services of a make-up artist who was set up at the bridal salon for the afternoon. 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!
