She said yes to the dress!

We started looking for a wedding dress for Chelsea yesterday. I did not expect to find anything-it was our first day looking. We tried one of those chain bridal stores, but then we went to a great little boutique and she fell in love with 3 dresses, and then finally chose one! I can't believe it! The very first day! Here are pictures of 3 of the runners up. I won't reveal the gorgeous dress she got, but let me just say it is stunning!! Elegant! Unbelievable! She looks absolutely radiant in it! You'll have to wait for the wedding pictures next June to see!
This is the first runner up at the first store we went to.

Here is runner up #3 at the 2nd store. The pictures really don't do this dress justice-it was really pretty.And finally the first runner up. It really ended up being a choice between this one and the dress she chose! This one was SO sparkly!

The very first dress she tried on, I got all choked up!It was really something to see my little darling standing there in a wedding dress! So awesome-we had a wonderful day!

Very beautiful bride to be! And you're lucky to have those pics... I worked at a bridal shop and there were no photos allowed. What a hard decision between dresses...
Have a great week, Kimberly

That is because some of us know a good thing when we see it! I got married a few years ago, and we found my dress at the very first boutique we went to, and it was a sale dress to boot. My Mom was shocked too....she thought we would be looking for days, or months-and she had flown down to my place to help me out. But she said....."now we have time to shop for stitching stuff"....and we did...we hit a LNS that afternoon! We were both happy beyond belief. And I was also happy because I lost enough weight before the wedding that I didn't have to take it in to get altered. Hope the rest of the wedding goes as smooth! She looks great!

How awesome for you and what a beautiful bride she's going to be! My DD found her dress on the second one she tried on and though we tried on a few more, that was it! Who knew it would be so easy sometimes??? Congrats!
