No turning back now!

DD & our future SIL are well on their way to their wedding next summer. While DD was home visiting, we went bridal gown shopping! Oh haven't styles changed since our youngest DD's wedding in '99. On the plus side, I didn't find a huge difference in pricing!

So after several shoppes, lots of browsing and ~ 20 try-ons, we have THE dress on order! I must say, it's the perfect one! Our bonus....DD & her sister (who will be be matron of honour) have selected her dress as well. Luckily, it doesn't need to be ordered right away. The main reason being, someone is now in training for her first 10 K run and her body may go through some significant re-shaping. So we will get her measured up early in the new year.

So I am checking off the dress, the date, the location, the colour scheme, the invitations...and am working on the catering. We have one price so far, and hope to get another very shortly. The kids are collecting DJ info and making the refreshment arrangements. Whew! No wonder I'm tired! But it's a happy tired!

That's great! I bet you are having fun though :o) I keep telling DH that I want to get married again because wedding dresses are so beautiful now. No such luck though! LOL!
