The Dress!

Last weekend, I went dress shopping with my mother, grandmother, and maid of honor.  It was such a wonderful experience at David's Bridal.  My consultant was so nice, and I had an amazing time.  My maid of honor was so helpful in calming my nerves and helping me put gowns on.  I don't know why I was so nervous...but I was!  Trying on gowns made everything a lot more real for me.

I tried on about 7 gowns.  I bought gown #4.  Nothing compared to it, and every time I put it on, I loved it more and more.  It has what I was looking for... a SPARKLE factor!  =)

I purchased the gown, the veil, the head piece, my shoes, and all the undergarments that make the dress look good!  I was also able to pick out colors that my girls are going to wear.  I am so excited to go back with them to try on their dresses.

Yesterday, the wedding photographer that we chose to photograph our wedding met with us at Harkness Park on the CT shoreline.  It is such a beautiful park, Scott and I love it there.  He took some engagement shots of us, and we developed a great relationship with him.  He is an awesome guy, very easy to get along with.  He's laid back and down to earth, and it's a perfect match for us.  I cannot wait to see the pictures.  We have had so many pictures taken of us, it will be cool to see something a little different!

I'm still on WW, losing weight slowly because I've slipped quite often lately.  With all the stress I was dealing with a few weeks ago, I have not lost much weight.  I need to get back on track.  Sometimes, it's hard to find the motivation... but I will.  I want to be perfect on my wedding day.  Perfect to me, is loving what I see in the mirror, and how I feel about myself.  I'm not there yet, but I will be.

Keep Smiling,
