Purchasing a wedding dress is an experience beyond what I imagined or expected. There’s something about that just feels so, well, right and exciting. No one had really told me that it would be a big deal — I mean, aside from the dozen TV shows on networks like TLC — so I really hadn’t put much thought into the act of wedding dress shopping.
Life surprised me though yesterday. I found myself with purchased dress in hand, a little wedding bell to ring and a giant smile on my face. The hostess at the bridal shop sent me on my way, only after handing me a bell, telling me to make a wish and then cheering for my good fortune. Who knew that wedding dress shopping could be so fresh, so fun, and so stress-free? I was in and out of the store, my very first shopping attempt, within 45 minutes.
It was all unexpected, all so fun, and all so perfect for a Friday afternoon.
Do something unexpected and make some noise about it. Find your own bell, ring it and make a wish.
