Wedding Dress - What a Chore! with covid 19

Wedding Dress - What a Chore! with covid 19 1

What a chore! I purchased three wedding dresses and finally found one I feel in love with. Shopping at Bridal stores and being fitted wasn't possible for me as they were closed COVID 19. I planned three months in advance and did not know the rule is to buy a wedding dress two sizes up from your normal size. The first two ordered online did not fit and it cost more to alter than I paid for the dresses. One month before the wedding I found a Bridal Store open and was able to accommodate me. The dress took three weeks to alter and finally I found my dream wedding dress during COVID 19 trying times. On Saturday, September 5, 2020, I married at The Belmond Hotel, Santa Barbara, at the Lilly Pond. The temperature was 103 degrees. Besides the heat the wedding was lovely and holds memories of a lifetime. -- Debra Hartsell Gabel HartsellGableWedding.com
