May 10, 2011 - After waiting 6 long months, I don't have to wait any longer! My wedding dress has arrived! And exactly 4 months before our wedding day! Talk about great timing!
Just after we got off air Tuesday morning, I got a message from the bridal shop saying my dress had arrived, and that I could try it on whenever I was ready to. It was all I could do to keep my mind on work, and off getting in my car, driving to "I Do", and trying on my dress. The anticipation was killing me!
Finally it was time! Allison, my Studio 10 Producer, who also happens to be one of my bridesmaids, offered to go with me. When I saw my dress, it looked exactly like I remembered it! I tried it on and fell in love with it all over again!
The tough part was taking it off. For whatever reason, when you put on the perfect wedding dress, you don't want to take it off. I even pictured myself at Bruno's in my dress, shopping in the bakery, and maybe in the frozen food section…just gliding around the store, because when you're in a wedding dress, you don't walk, you "glide". Sure, you may get a few stares from other shoppers, but when you're in your wedding dress, nothing like that matters...well, at least in my random thought it didn't.
I know…you're supposed to picture yourself walking down the aisle at your wedding when you see yourself in your wedding dress, but for some reason I pictured myself walking down a grocery store aisle…I really have no idea why, maybe it was because I knew I needed to go grocery shopping, and I just put the two together. Hopefully there's no surprise hidden message in that weird thought that will surface later…There are no plans to get married in a grocery store and change our venue for the fourth time~LOL.
So obviously I didn't wear my dress to the grocery store. In fact, I didn't even take it home with me. Honestly, there would be too much temptation for my fiancée to sneak a peak if it was hanging in a closet at my house. So, it stays at I Do until 6 weeks before our wedding when I go in for my fitting and alterations. And I know that day will be here before I know it!
