This Weekend: I Found the Dress!

Yep, you heard that right...I found my dream wedding dress after two long weeks of searching.

And I found it at Low's Bridal, none the less.

Never heard of Low's Bridal before? 

I mean, it's only the bridal mecca of the mid south.
Going into it, I had a 99% certainty that I would find my dress here. The selection is incredible large, followed by the fact that getting your dress from Low's is almost like a southern girl's rite of passage. 

I went with my bridesmaids, Kristen and Jenna.

I was truly blessed to have these two chicks with me on Saturday. Being that this place is such an island of tulle, organza, and silk, it was nice to have them to help me sort through the endless amount of dresses.

And let me tell you, when I went, I went prepared. In my hands I held a list of vendor names, style numbers, and printed images, all of which contained ideas of what I would want.

So, imagine my surprise when I choose a gown at random in which I had labeled earlier as a "southern debutante's dream." Trying it on, I had striped it of its original elements, then crafted it with other individual pieces, and ended up making it a truly one of a kind gown.

Now I refer to this fluffy concoction as my dream dress.
The dress I will get married in.

I can't wait to show you what it ended up looking like!

Let the countdown begin :)
