I picked up my bridesmaids' dresses today. They are absolutely gorgeous! I was nervous that I had made the decision based on time left, but I am so very pleased! My girls are going to look amazing! They may steal away from me!
The weird thing is that as I drove home from the bridal store, bridesmaid dresses in tow, I started to cry. It was the first time I got to see the dresses in person and so I began to think about each girl in the dresses, and pictured the day. My dress is absolutely stunning and so special. So many wedding planners and once-brides, say that the minute they tried on their wedding gown they cried or IT HIT THEM. Although i have already bought my dress and done the flowers and bulk of the planning, it was today that it REALLY hit me. I rushed into to JP's house to show him the dress, fell in his arms and cried. I feel so blessed and know that our day is going to be beautiful, and everything I imagined...no matter what. And most importantly, the man waiting at the end of the aisle is the man I love and get to wake up to every morning (morning breath or not).
For those of you who are married or in the process, When did it truly hit you?
