Sorry for the late night post, but this Wedding Wednesday I have a great excuse! After a morning appointment today I went to try on some wedding dresses for the first time with my Mom. We visited two of the city's best stores, where I quickly learned that the styles you don't like on paper actually look very different on. Puffy, princess, mermaid, fitted... I tried them all and had a lot of fun doing so! It's amazing how heavy some dresses are though. I swear I tried one on that weighed about 15 pounds. How does one even move in a dress like that?
Twenty or so styles later I think I found one I really, really adore. There were a few maybe's, but when I thought, "Would Rick like this one?" I really fell in love with it. It was one the saleswoman had taken off the mannequin for me to try on. I saw it immediately when I first walked into the store, but thought, there's no way that style will work on me. Well, it does! And later when my Mom and I had returned home I took a peek through the tear sheets of dresses that i've been saving the past few months, and it turns out I had saved the exact dress and didn't even realize it. Crazy, right? I'm headed back in two weeks to get the "Maid of Honour approval" from my best friend Ashley, and then we'll see... I might have found my dress already! Is it supposed to be this easy? Such a great day...

P.S. "My" dress looks nothing like the one above – can't take any chances with Rick. His detective skills are pretty good, even when he's not intentionally looking for something. You'll have to wait until pics are taken for the details... sorry!
