It's Here!!!

As soon as I walked in the door after work today, the phone was ringing. It was the bridal salon saying that my dress had come in, and I could come pick it up any time. I had just called yesterday and they'd told me then that they expected it this week or next. So, this was a very nice surprise.

I called my mom and asked her to meet me there before I dashed out the door and headed back down to Orange County - where I'd just come from. I left the house so quickly, that I didn't think to grab my camera, or anything else like my bustier and a pair of shoes (I have several pairs here at the house, but haven't made a decision yet). Once there, I was able to try it on. It fits like a glove! Seriously, the only alterations required will be the bustle and a good steaming. It is so beautiful and flattering. I'm just so happy with my choice.

My mom took it home with her because we don't want Michael to see it before the wedding. I'm planning on going over to my parents' this weekend, and I'll take my camera. I'll post some pictures of me in my dress in a few days.

The closer we get, the more real it seems. Wow! What a feeling!

Oh I just got goose bumps! I hope Michael doesn't read the blog...he might "see" you in the dress girl!

Joannah said...

Nah, Michael knows I blog, but he doesn't seem interested in reading it. What's up with that? If he had a blog, you'd bet I'd be reading it!

Tammy said...

Wow, is that THE dress? It's gorgeous! How exciting.

That dress is gorgeous! And you're goin to look so beautiful in it. My husband doesn't read my blog either, unless I prompt him to. But if he had a blog, I'd read it everday. Maybe it's a guy thing.

Sandra said...

That is one stunning dress. I absolutely love it.

Shelley said...

What fun for you!! And I know you will be a vision in your dress.

Kristin said...

Joannah - that is seriously one of the most gorgeous dresses I have ever seen... you're going to be such a beautiful bride!

Salome's Mom said...

I found your blog through another blog and through your old blog. Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!!

The dress is drop dead gorgeous. This is such an exciting time. It reminds me of my own wedding. I got married at 41 to the love of my life after swearing I would never marry.

Your blog is so pretty, I love the fresh buttery color. Nice to have found your blog.

Wow! I bet you look like a princess with it on (and feel like one too!)

Glinda said...

Stunning...I cannot wait to see you in it; of course it will pale in comparison to my sparkly bubble gum pink ball gown; I hope I don't draw too much attention to myself, perhaps I'll leave my wand and tiara at home. ;0

Paulette said...

I just love the dress too and I'm sure it looks fabulous on you. Can't wait to see you in it.

The Shocks said...
