So I think I’ve found the dress. My mom came up just to see it yesterday. And then I e-mailed pictures to Monica, my seamstress childhood friend, who did a wonderful job of fixing my bridesmaid dress when I melted it with an iron last weekend. That’s a whole other story. But anyway, she might make my wedding dress because it’s way too expensive to just buy, and it would be way cooler to truly have a one-of-a-kind wedding dress as well as a one-of-a-kind ring. So we’ve e-mailed, and depending on what date Kyle and I pick, hopefully she’ll be able to do it, once we actually talk. Of course, I can’t describle what it looks like or anything because Kyle’s not allowed to know. Or put up pictures either. But if you want me to describe them to you in an e-mail or send some pictures (the only person I’m going to be secretive about this is Kyle, I think), let me know. As long as you swear an oath to never show Kyle.
Also, on the bit about secrecy. The two weddings I’ve been in, the brides have only had their moms see the dress before the day of the wedding. Then the bridesmaids got to see it to help her get ready and stuff, but all before that, it was a secret. Is that a thing to do? I don’t know if I should be less sharing of the dress. I know my bridesmaids will see it, as will Monica and my mom. Holly and Rita were the first to go dress shopping with me. And Rita came yesterday to the trunk show. So anyway, if you have any comments on that or if you want to know details, post away.
