I never fully appreciated how hard the wedding planning process would be till I hit my own 6 month marker Friday. . .
Suddenly occurred to me, I have LOTS and LOTS to do. So I immediately made an appointment with David's Bridal so I could find gown styles that looked nice on me. I found 2 on-line that I thought were very pretty, but they looked very pretty on the models, I wanted to make sure that gown style would be equally flattering on me.
David's Bridal was VERY over-whelming, honestly hundreds of gowns and styles and colors to choose from. The sales representative was very helpful, and very knowledgeable. Saturday is their busiest day so she was assisting me and another young woman, I had brought my friend Angela, who was married last October. Angela was a HUGE help, got me into gowns, out of gowns, wrote down styles I liked. Perfect :)
Turns out wedding dresses are so heavy. I was honestly exhausted after an hour. BUT we found 2 dresses very similar in style to the 2 I found on-line which was very helpful bc I definitely do NOT want a long train. Good grief, so much extra weight to lug around. I was also very please bc those 2 styles did look nice on me, I didn't feel they cut me off and made me look more short, and the one other style didn't wash out my "small framed" figure.
Now I just need to contact the company and see what my options are.
I need to make more appointments with photographers. So far I only have one appointment today with a photographer I was recommended by a co-worker. I have spoken with her once and think she sounds really great. Josh said he will ask for recommendations from his married friends so we have can make a more rounded decision.
Last BIG thing I need to do pretty soon is food :( Need to find a caterer and one fast, need to make a deposit and pray they are still available for Dec 21st!
