Wedding Dress Shopping!

Happy Monday Tuesday y'all!  Hopefully, y'all had a great looong weekend!

As y'all know, Saturday was THE day!  The day I would go wedding dress shopping for the very first time!

I was super excited but, a little nervous too.  1, because I didn't know what to expect & 2, because I knew that I would experience a lot of emotions that day - happy, over-joyed, nervous, sad, excited - & I experienced them all plus some!

Going into this day, I already had an idea in my head of what I wanted.  I was open to trying other things but, I also knew that I wanted this to be my first & last day of dress shopping.  So, I had to find the one!

& find the one I did!

We started off with Saturday morning breakfast at Lucile's where my two aunts & a few of my bridesmaids joined me!

Bridesmaid Chelle & my Aunt Cindi

Aunt Vicki, Maid of Honor Hiedi & Bridesmaid Hannah

After breakfast we headed to the bridal store!
*Please note that I am only showing this one picture as Matthew has not seen any of these pictures from Saturday & sometimes reads my blog.*

This is my reaction when the door opened to show off the first dress I tried on...

I had this flood of emotions come over me & started bawling like a baby!  I literally tried to back up & go back in the dressing room!  Clearly, Katie my consultant wasn't letting that happen!  HA!

After two hours of shopping & trying on dress #4... I knew I had the one!!!

After all that dress shopping we all went to lunch at Gloria's & celebrated me finding my dress with margaritas!

It's so wonderful being surrounded by so many loving & supportive people at this time in mine & Matthew's lives.

The rest of the weekend was pretty low-key but, was spent visiting with my two aunts some more & my little brother.  Matthew came home Monday afternoon & we went out for a mid-day date to the movies.  We saw The Bourne Legacy.  Loved it like the others minus 1 small motorcycle chasing scene... it just dragged on for too long. I think there will be another one though as they left the end... well, open.
