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...
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 👰❤😘

    You're welcome, I'm sure she's smiling down on you. And thank you, I've grown to love my name. I didn't like it growing up at all.

    You look amazing !! I also believe she was with you . My mom is gone also and I will be doing this by myself . I’m so relieved to hear how the consultants treated you ..it sounds like they were there for genuine support . the consultants , your mom and you were in sync on the dress . It gave me goosebumps reading your post . (Good ones)
    aaaand you ended up buying it for less without realizing it was on sale !!! It’s all meant to be, and your mom was right next to you the whole time! Congrats on the amazing day and beautiful dress that looks like it’s made for you !

    Thank you ! You are so kind!
    I just really needed her at that moment, and I guess I didn't realize how much until I felt her presence❤

    I'm so sorry you lost your mom too.
    Where are you located? If you are in or near NC and need some support getting your dress let me know!


    Thanks so much for the message!

    Well shoot...
    I spent alot of time in Texas, when I was a Flight Attendant for Continental. If I was still flying I'd just jump on a plane.

    Seriously, if I can help in anyway please let me know.
    Let me know when you go, at the very least I can send prayers your waySmiley smile

    YesSmiley smile
    I'm doing several things probably.
    Definitely, the empty chair with flowers.
    We co-owned a florist together.
    I hope I can do her justice by creating my wedding alone.

    I'm will also set up a table or a small space with her pictures. I will also include some of her favorite songs at the reception.

    I'm also open to suggestions if you know of anything else. ❤
    Keep in touch!
