The Dress

Is it “the one!?” asked my best friend and Matron of Honor, upon receiving another picture of me in yet another wedding dress. She had been receiving sneakily snapped pictures from the dressing room for the past two days of my favorite dresses. Apparently, a lot of bridal salons don’t allow pictures but that didn’t stop me (whoops). There seems to be a constant theme surrounding weddings, “the one”. Well the first is obvious, the guy! Yes, he is the one! But also smaller decisions occur along the way, like the perfect venue, the perfect band, the photographer, etc. etc. The blissed out bride drinking champagne didn’t last too long when there are so many decisions to be made. Anyway, I digress.  Wedding dress shopping and the search for the perfect wedding dress is a fun experience, though I have to admit not without its own challenges. I had a great problem, I really loved four different dresses.

Almost as soon as we were engaged and a date and venue had been picked my mom made appointments at bridal salons and booked tickets to fly down and take me dress shopping! Thank goodness for friends who are already married and have gone wedding dress shopping before, because the advice I received was invaluable. Mostly, It was great to know where to go and not to go to try on dresses in NYC. Some stores are known for having dirty dress! Yes, I said it dirty gross pit stained wedding dresses – No thank you!  Also, my married friends were able to point me in the direction of lovely people to work with like Indira at Mark Ingram, who make the entire experience even more enjoyable! In two days (and multiple revisits) I went to Bergdorf Goodman Bridal, Mark Ingram, Monique Lhuillier and Carolina Herrera.

PS. Yes, the last dress I texted to my best friend was the one! I really loved four dresses and I don’t think I could have made a wrong decision and in the end I went with the one that felt right to me!
