Only Girl is getting married!
You know what that means. Wedding stuff galore. Drowning in wedding stuff, wedding decisions, wedding details. Only Girl (marrying who shall hence be known as Number Three Son, because he’s just that awesome) is having a simple wedding.
Stop laughing. I mean it! Really, it’s a very simple home wedding. And yet it still is a Big Deal and requires Countless Decisions that suddenly, because it is A Wedding, become hugely monumental, end of the world as we know it decisions.
Only Girl was not going to be fussy about her wedding dress. She was firm on her price and on her style. It all seemed relatively simple. Only Girl cannot go into any store without finding some item of clothing that looks spectacular on her. A wedding dress? More of the same.
Well, after many fits and starts, we finally heard through the “bridal grapevine” (oh, yes, there is such a thing) about a really great bridal store in another city an hour away. We went there at the soonest possibility—namely, two days after we heard about it. The wedding is in THREE MONTHS. We were getting down to the wire and tensions were mounting.
This place was amazing!! We found five dresses that were very good, two that made it to the final round, and one that we bought and walked out of the store with! No alterations required!
This is a shot of the runner up dress.
She said yes to the dress and now all that’s left is to say yes to the caterer and yes to the florist and yes to the chair rentals and . . .
What do you think of the people on Say Yes to the Dress? What style of wedding dress do you like best? What price is too much to pay for a dress?
