I called Low's Bridal last Friday to make an appointment to pick out my wedding dress! EEKKEK! I had an appointment Saturday in hopes to find my dream dress. My mom, dad, sisters, soon to be mother in law and her mother went along. I can't tell you how long I have been dreaming of this day of finding my dress! Finally the time has come to pick out a dress that I will wear when I marry my handsome hubby to be Brad!
Low's is known in the South as "THE" wedding dress store and shopping experience. I have heard about Low's since I was a little girl and greatly anticipated the day I would go there and find my own wedding dress!
Since I have had a few other bridal appointments, I knew exactly what I wanted…it was just finding it all in one dress!
As my appointment started, I was introduced to my consultant, Ann. This lady was probably 76 years old y’all. I described everything that I wanted in a dress and expected her to pull it instantly and try on maybe 5 tops before I found MY DRESS….
Umm no… Y’all I probably tried on at least 75 dresses. I was there for 3 hours and my consultant DID NOT EVEN PULL ONE DRESS!
I was BEYOND frustrated with her. She had all of my family go and try to find my dress as she was patiently waiting for me to take off each dress so she could hang them back up. I was about to cry I was so upset.
Then finally I tried on a dress that I specifically told her NOT to let me try on because my friend just bought it. When I had the dress on, I was close to saying yes and then said wait a minute----what designer is this? Worst possible case…it was her dress. I was devastated and absolutely could not say yes.
Another consultant was listening in on everything I said I wanted. She pulled one dress for me to try on. After I put it on and walked out to the large mirrors it hit me. I had “that moment” tears of joy were shed.
THIS IS THE DRESS!
I knew it instantly. I did not want to take it off. I then went and picked out a few accessories to go with it. It was a long and stressful day, but overall I am happy because I found the dress I am getting married in!
I cannot wait until the day I say I DO...especially since I have my dress now. I just want to wear it around the house but unfortunately, it is hidden away somewhere so Brad can't see.
