“We need to talk to you about your dress. Call us back ASAP” is never the voicemail a bride to be wants to get three months before her wedding but that was the message I got a couple weeks ago. I started going into worst case scenario mode. The dress won’t be happening and all the people I obsessively sent 20 pictures of it to will think I got so fat I couldn’t fit into my dress. (Evel Knievel couldn’t make the jumps my mind makes!)
It turns out my lovely bridal salon leaves voicemails to all their brides like this so they will call them back. Mark my words, some bridezilla is going to march into that place and go all Solange in an elevator on these women and it will be justified.
Since my dress wasn’t supposed to be ready until July I had no plan of going anytime soon, meaning my Mom who resides in Boston would not be going to my first dress fitting. Since Dino Boy’s mother and grandmother would be at our home to celebrate Mother’s Day I figured this would be a perfect way to include these amazing women into a fun part of the wedding planning process.
After some tears, a discussion of veil or no veil and some giggles over my neon pink underwear (oops!) I was able to get some quick shots with the women that raised Dino Boy to be the dino-mite guy that he is! It’s a photo I will always cherish!
Who did you bring to your dress fitting?
