Happy weekend! Do you guys have any plans? I was going to spend it continuing my search for a bridal gown with one of my bridesmaids, but as it happens I 'said yes to the dress' this week! As soon as I put it on, I felt so beautiful, but also very me. I still went to a few more stores, and a sample designer gown pop-up sale, but none of the others gave me (or my mom) the same reaction.
The bonus? I bought it off-the-rack for 50% off! Like so many other couples, B and I are discovering that despite our best research and planning, weddings cost more than you'd expect. So to get that magical feeling AND come in under my gown budget was more than I could have hoped for. We're making process on other fronts - we booked our venue so our wedding date is officially set: May 10, 2014. We didn't plan it that way, but the date happens to fall on B's birthday :) Hopefully it's an EPIC celebration!!
Anyways, enough wedding talk - I've been doing some cooking this week so check back soon for my upcoming recipe posts!
