I found my dress today. Forgive my black bra and tan lines, the bodice is too big in the front and the back, but I can visualize the finished results..and I will love it once it's altered to fit.
It will be two years August, since I lost my Mama. I went alone today because my best friends live out of state.
I tried on three dresses and when I got each one on three of the consultants would gather and offer opinions. I only had one consultant, but the other two told me they felt drawn to come over.
I was having a hard time deciding between two dresses, so when I put this one on they decided to "jack me up. "
As soon as they did, I felt a sense of peace come over me and I knew my mama was there because I felt her presence. And I knew this was the one.
Just then all three of the consultants did like a little gasp and they each said did you feel that chill? So, I started to cry...my thoughts were confirmed. They each explained that they had a head to toe chill all of a sudden. I had felt it too. Kind of like a breeze out of nowhere.
Not sure if any one else believes in the afterlife, but I do.
I then explained about losing my Mama and how her birthday falls on Mother's day this year. And how much she would have loved seeing me trying on dresses.
Three complete strangers stood and cried with me. It made me feel less alone. It was truly a special moment.
My budget from my Fiancee was $1,200.
This dress was $1,300 I knew he would be ok with that, so I decided to look for a veil and belt somewhere else, although I loved them as a complete look.
I got to the register and much to my surprise was informed that this dress had just been marked down to $800 and I could get the dress, veil and belt for $1,200.
Looks like I was in the right place at the right time 👰❤😘
