Wedding Dress Update: PURCHASED!

So part of the reason I didn't post last week was because I went to New York Wednesday and Thursday to get my wedding dress.  I had fallen in love with it the first trip to NYC, tried a different version on in Chicago, and finally made the decision on Thursday morning.

Since my sister lives in Michigan and has a new baby it has been hard to have her present for most wedding planning.  This time, however, she was able to meet my Mom and I in New York, which made the trip THAT much more special.  (However, I was a little jealous of her all weekend because while our flight was delayed she got an amazing blow out and her hair looked better than mine all weekend #sisterproblems.)

When my Mom and I finally made it to the hotel, Melissa was waiting with gifts, what a way to kick off the trip.

  Melissa surprised me and got me my something blue!!!  It is a piece of fabric I will have sewn into my dress with my new initials and our wedding date!  Another special perk is my bridesmaid, Kate, had the exact same something blue (well with her date and initials but you get it) in her dress that her Maid of Honor gave to her.  I had never heard of this and was blown away.  She had it made at J. Crew if you want to purchase one.

The rest of the day Wednesday we shopped and just spent some quality time together.  Wednesday night was very special to me, my sister finally got to meet my bestest friend, Judi.  Judi is such an important person in my life and I just could not believe she had never met my sister!!

Thursday was just as I thought it would be, perfect!  My sister loved the dress and I just finally had that bride moment where I never wanted to take it off.  Seriously, I wouldn't get out of it and another girl was totally eyeing it in the store.  I obviously cannot show a picture but I couldn't even if I wanted to because I decided I didn't even want to take a picture of it.  No picture would do it justice, so I want everyone even my family and friends to wait for the big day! 

After our appointment, I celebrated like I always do.. with a giant bowl of spaghetti!

The trip was truely incredible and I have found my dream dress that I get to wear when I marry the man of my dreams!
