i found my wedding dress!

This past Saturday I went to Kleifeld with my mother, Kevin's mother and two of my bridesmaids to look for my wedding dress.  It was a dream to go to Kleinfeld to look for a dress.  I am sure many of you watch the show Say Yes to the Dress, hehe.  I was pretty nervous before we walked inside, I think I was actually shaking.  I have no idea why I was nervous.  

Me and my momma!
Me, momma and Cyndi.
Me and Catharine (my maid of honor).
Marissa was running late (stupid NYC subways) so we couldn't get a picture together beforehand but Cyndi snapped this photo after we bought the dress.

Walking into Kleinfeld was so dreamy.  We were instantly surrounded by beautiful dresses.  Our consultant, Nora, came out to meet us and took us back to a dressing room.  I showed her all the pictures I had brought, we talked about my price point and she went off to pull some of my favorite dresses.  I put of the first couple dresses, I liked them all and started to get nervous that I wasn't gonna know when I found my dress.  I really liked all the dresses I was putting on, there were some things I didn't 100% love but they were all so gorgeous.  Here is a couple of the dresses I put on.

Then Nora brought in an Alita Graham dress that made me squeal with delight.  I instantly loved it.  When I put it on I just knew I had found my dress!  I was beaming.  I couldn't stop moving around letting the bottom of the dress flow, eek I couldn't stop touching it.  It was a feeling I hadn't gotten in any of the other dresses.  Everyone else in the room knew it was my dress too.  They all said that the second I put the dress on my face just lit up.  I really wish I could post a picture of the dress but I have to keep it a secret from Kevin.  I won't say anything else about my dress, ugh I have such a hard time keeping secrets and I have to keep this secret for 8 whole months.

I can't believe that dress shopping is already over, it was too easy, hehe.  Now I am on the lookout for the perfect pair of shoes, yippee!

Thank you so much mom for spending this wonderful day with me and buying me my dream wedding dress, I love you!!!
