I bought my wedding dress! I can't describe it on here because certain male members of my blog team might read about it, but it's hot. I think it might be the perfect Katy dress. Let me just say that a girl who spends so much time in rugby shorts (and now rowing spandex!) has a hard time feeling pretty and comfortable in an elegant dress.
This one makes me feel great. It's simple and almost plain, but it has just enough tasteful add-ons to make it stunning. Part of the reason I love my dress so much is that I feel lithe and beautiful and bridey in it. I like how I can bend and twist in the flowy material and I certainly don't need a crinoline to wear underneath it. Also, the dress comes in a petite, so they'll waste less material when they chop it to fit my stubby legs.
This dress was the first one I tried on, the one which beckoned me from among the marshmallow frills on the rack. I found myself comparing all the other dresses to that one, always finding something off in the others. I like how I feel wearing it, standing on the dias while my mom dabs her eyes and smiles. I like to think about wearing it to walk through the yard at the farm where Corey will be waiting to marry me.
When I have the dress on, I don't feel like a kid in a grown-up's body and I forget that I like to tackle people and do pushups. When I am wearing my new flowy dress, I am a woman about to politely tell the world that I love Corey more than anything else and want to spend my life with him. After I take the dress off, I realize how cheesy and girly that sounds and want to go pound out a few squats.
Even though it won't arrive for alterations for five months, I still like knowing I can go to the website and look at the gown and smile to think of it as the first official uniform I'll wear when I join Corey's team.
