wedding plans on track

try if you might, but this post was such a long time ago so you could easily be forgiven for not remembering, Rowing Boy and French Chic got engaged  immediately prior to Christmas 2008, and then we had a fantastic time celebrating at their engagement party , well the big day is less then 5 weeks away!

... yesterday Rowing Man and I were in town, but part of the day, while Rowing Man was busy elsewhere, I managed to get round a few dress shops, and try on some gorgeous creations ..... and finally with Rowing Man in tow...last shop of the day, 5pm.. I managed to find just what I had been looking for,

you know how it goes, you're not exactly sure what you do want, but you certainly know what you don't want,

and you try on several  pretties, too many to mention really.., all looking pretty good, .... but they just don't have that zing, that WOW factor, that feel that the minute you slide the fabric over your head, and pull it down over your body,

...and look in the mirror, that this is what you have been looking for  the whole day! ...this makes you feel good... and that makes you look good!

it might not be the colour you thought you were going to wear,

or even the style that you had in your head,

but this IS the dress that makes you feel a million dollars, and still doesn't take any magic away from the bride or her bridesmaids, (not that you could ever do that anyway) or the Bride's mother, everyone is going to look and feel great!

now I just have to not wear it for the next 5 weeks, and keep it clean and spot free, I have already had it on twice today!
