Four Very Exciting Words.....

that every bride loves to hear!!!! I made a call yesterday to check on the status of something very important. When I asked where that item stood the girl said those four fabulous words........"YOUR DRESS IS IN!"

The poor girl at Brides by Demetrios probably regrets taking my call because I guarantee she was pulling the phone away from her ear as I started squealing in complete excitement! It turns out that my wedding dress arrived on March 10 but I never received a call or a voicemail, that I know of. Normally I might get upset about something like this but since I don't go in for my first dress fitting until May it was probably a blessing in disguise because we all know I could never wait 2 months! I wasn't exactly blessed with patience (thanks Mom and Dad...haha).

I cannot wait to try on my dress that is in my size (it's not the same trying on a dress at the store because you know it is not your dress). AHHHH.......The soft feel of the satin, the intricate bead work, the long train........I am drooling just thinking about it! AND I will be able to see what the dress looks like with my shoes which you can see here. I can barely contain my excitement, even a day later!!!!

I cannot wait to slip into my dress.....hopefully I can step into the dress versus pulling it over my head!

Look at my dress in the mirror making sure that everything looks perfect!

And taking a moment to just admire my dress and let everything sink in!

May cannot get here quick enough!!!! What was your reaction when you found out your dress was in?!? Did you scream, did you call everyone, did you do your own rendition of a touchdown dance?!? Let me know because I definitely squealed, called people, and did a little dance! I know, I am overly giddy but right now I am on cloud 9!!!

Side note- the girl also let me know that my bridesmaid dresses are due to arrive beginning to middle of June! PERFECT!!!!

Have a great Thursday!!! One more day!!!! :-)

ahhh...how exciting!! :) I def. know what you mean by saying it's not the same trying on dresses in the store. It isn't "your dress!" My dress hasn't came in yet, but it should be here in May! Cannot wait!

I kept myself composed until I got off the phone and then immediately called my mom and we squealed together. I still get excited thinking about my dress and sometimes even have dreams about it, crazy I know but it’s just perfect and June cannot get here soon enough! So excited for you!!!

Adrienne said...

OMG! I am so happy for you!!! I can feel the excitement in your post and I have no doubt I will be squealing when my dress comes in too...haha.

that's so exciting! Since I'm not getting a formal dress I'm constantly on the look out for white dresses at random stores. Unfortunately I won't get the "your dress is in" call, but I can imagine that it's such a thrill!!

Jessie said...

Ooohhh congratulations!!!

Adrienne said...

What are the chances of us getting our dresses in back to back like that?! So exciting!!
