My sister asked only my mom and I to come with her and it couldn't have been a more magical day... except for one thing was missing.. CHAMPAGNE!
We walked in and I was expecting to be handed a glass over flowing with bubbly, but there was none in sight. I figured okay that's strange maybe when we are put in a dressing room there will be a bottle chilling. To my surprise there wasn't even a stand with glasses waiting to be filled. At this point I thought silly me why would a store just hand out champagne to just anyone. you must have to say yes to a dress and then the celebrations will begin.
Well, she picked her dress and we all clapped and cheered with excitement. Then, as they lead us into a private room I knew the time had arrived, but then all that happened was they asked us to pay. So yes, the day was wonderful my sister got the dress of her dreams, but I walked away from the experience baffled.
Why in every movie and TV show do they always show girls drinking champagne and giggling over these dresses? It isn't true and I feel as a professional bridesmaid I must make sure everyone is aware!
Okay, so I just wanted to give you all the heads up if you are expecting that magical toast! I am in no way saying I only wanted to go for the booze, I just had always pictures that moment with a glass in hand.
Did you expect champagne when you went shopping for a dress? Did you get it?
