side note - this is not dissing you ladies who choose to partake in this event, it's merely my little old opinion about MY dress :)
i'll give you a hint about my dress.
HA! no i won't! but don't worry - in 8 short days you will be able to see it in post-wedding recap photos.
what i will tell you though is i can't wait to put it on next wednesday for my final fitting and then put it in my little rental car, pick up pat from newark airport and make my merry way up to CT. if things go well, i might even have a dunkin donuts ice coffee in hand (damn you california! don't you know us east coaster transplants NEED our dunkin? california does not run on dunkin'!)
i LOVE my dress, love love love it. so many memories will be had in that dress, in a matter of a day. as i mentioned, my dress was made by my amazing seamstress in hoboken. i tried many other places and just couldn't find the perfect dress and then all along there it was, waiting for me in one of my favorite places in the world (hoboken!), right across from my favorite deli. meant to be? you bet!
why am i dragging you through this ridonculous post? becauuuuse, i just can't even imaging trashing my dress!! trashing it?! it's so pretty and lovely and i can't wait for my daughter to have the option of wearing it - in some shape or form - as i did with my mother's dress. and my grandmother is going to embroider our names and wedding dates in blue thread inside the dress which makes it even more special.
|gorgeous girl but the photo makes me want to scream|
so even if the thing sits in the attic for the next 30 years i do not care - there's no way on earth that i'm going to do anything to even remotely trash it - i am going to treasure it instead :)
