So there are some big moments in my life, and this is one of them. I found my wedding dress today!!! AHHHHHHH!!!! It was so fun. I tried on about 5 dresses today at Mon Amie and they were all beautiful and then the last one I tried on pretty much ceased all other dress try-outs. It was an AA dress like I wanted. My mom and BM were sitting out in the waiting area, and then when the lady helped me put it on, I guess I just had this look on my face because she commented on it right away. Then I walked out into the main store area with all the big mirrors and everyone's face lit up, including mine of course. People were gawking....the employess, and the other brides and families there. They just like stop dead in their tracks to stare and tell me it was beautiful. That just felt so great because that is what I want on my wedding day. I think I left it on for a good hour almost looking in different mirrors, and walking up and down the aisle hallway with a big mirror, making several u-turns and feeling the most beautiful I think I have ever felt. Everyone was asking me if I had found the one, and I was just totally smiley like a lil girl in a pink tutu if you know what I mean. Except I wasn't a lil girl in a pink tutu I was a freaking princess for real with a REAL dreamdress all grown up and waiting to knock FI off his feet soon!!!! I didn't want to take it off and the lady told me to keep it on some more because they werent ready to take my measurements just yet. Not a problem.  I am soooo happy. I am going back there to try it on again and take pics, because I searched high and low on the internet and there are no pics anywhere!!  It feels so weird that this is done because it's sinking in that I am actually getting married.

Here is the catch about the dress...it's not white. I thought I would have a problem with a dress with color but everyone agreed that the color combo made me glow and made the dress. It has ecru satin that drapes over the front of champagne tulle (which emerges from the bottom). The top is a vintage lace corset that laces in the back. It has light pink flowers (3 that can move around so I ordered them seperate). Ok so then I put a single layer cathedral veil on the back and it was like WOW.
