a successful, but emotional day.

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 👰❤😘

    Cheryl,
    I cry every time I think about it❤ and I never cry.
    I've decided that I will not cry at my wedding, after all of that I looked like I had been through the ringer ha ha.
    I'm definitely an ugly crier, not a graceful one unfortunatelySmiley smile

    Oh my goodness girl!!!!!!!!! Firstly, that dress is so stunning on you and I am IN LOVE with your whole look. Secondly, I'm crying. I'm so glad you were able to feel your mom there with you Smiley heart and those consultants had to be being compelled to you by her, so she could let you really know for sure she was there. Smiley heart I love it, I'm so happy for you

    Beautiful dress and story! I cried reading it. Your mom totally sent those consultants over so you wouldn't feel alone. Of course she was there with you (and got you that great deal too!) and she'll be there on your big day too. PS, the dress looks stunning on you.
