Kara here. The time has come to discuss something I had been putting off for a while now—my wedding dress. Let me explain.
I was hesitant to make the salon appointments for some time because…I felt the pressure. All of those hours I had spent watching ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ had built this image in my mind of how it was going to be. This was it – this was THE gown - the one that will be photographed forever. Talk about pressure. And being a curvy girl, I wasn’t expecting an easy road ahead of me.
But for fear of running out of time, I bit the bullet and made my first few appointments with local bridal salons in hopes of finding ‘the one.’ The first appointment I made was with local bridal boutique Bridal Galleria—and they were just fantastic to work with. (They even let me play around taking these photos while my group and I shopped!)
In my search for the dress, I stumbled upon a few ‘a-ha’ moments I’d like to share with other brides-to-be who are on the same journey as I am.
Above all, and forgive me for sounding totally cliché, remember this: you are going to look beautiful no matter what you wear. Don’t stress. Don’t overthink. And good luck!
So, did I find ‘the one?’ Stay tuned!
Until next time,
