Oh the planning! So its time to select the dress! Mom and I went shopping, and I decided to be a budget conscious bride, and went to Carolina Bridal World in Smithfield. I really wanted to visit the boutiques, but with my taste, I thought I will pick the only Vera Wang or most expensive designer there is, and fall in love. So I wanted to fall in love on a budget. And I tried them on! Mom and I grabbed all the dresses, that had something on the skirt that we could find. I was selective, and would put some back and talk them out. I took 10 dresses into the dressing room, and stood there looking, I thought which one should I try on first? I saw one that I picked first off the rack and said I will start at the beginning. Of course every one that I tried on, my mom was like thats great, love it, oh this is wonderful. I too thought how do I choose! I remember my first dress, and it had all the elements I wanted, and I tried it on again....and we decided it was it! I decided I needed something pretty, comfy, and something lightweight, with some lace and some interesting elements, and then something with some style. I wanted something different, but didn't look before we went looking. I went in with very little in mind, and no predetermined ideas. It was the best thing I could have done. That way I didn't get my hopes up and I found something lovely! LOVE MY DRESS!
