That's right ladies! I finally found the dress I'll be marrying my future hubby in. After a full year of anxiety and never feeling like I'd ever find "the one", she came to my rescue on a day I wasn't shopping for myself! A day I'd least expect to find her. HA! Funny how things happen when you least expect it.

I was shopping with a couple of my best bridesmaids, Johna and Amy and my cutie brother Jacob for bridesmaid dresses. Of course we were on the hunt for dresses made by BARI JAY! Only the best for my girls ;) Anywho, we found their dresses {which I will post about in a few} and to everyones surprise, we FOUND MINE as well!

It was an AMAZING feeling when I was putting on the dress. A feeling that I never had with the other millions I had tried on before. Johna was assisting me with trying her on. And the moment she finished zipping up my dress, I turned around, looked in the mirror, and I knew, this, was a magical moment. I knew this was the feeling every bride speaks of when they say "they just knew it was the one". But what really sealed the deal with her was when I caught my baby brother shedding a tear. {{love him}}

"I" knew it was the one. My bridesmaids knew it was the one. My baby brother knew it was the one.... but in the end, my parents input means the world to me so I wanted to get their approval.

3 weeks later, I was graced with my parents company as I tried her on once again. I was reassured by my mothers face. Her happiness was written all over it. She cried 3 times! 3 TIMES!! My father immediately gave me his blessing {{no tears from him, darn it!}}

Well, to say the least, we all left feeling really good about our decision we made.

P.S. I even had my little flower girl come. She wanted to practice =)

Here is a sneak peak....

I love your dress. That is similar to what I am looking for. Do you mind sharing who the designer is & the name of the dress?
