I made appointments at 3 stores and ended up returning to one of the stores for a second visit.
Let me tell you ladies.... wedding dress shopping is not all it is cracked up to be.
Maybe I watched one too many episodes of "Say Yes to the Dress," or maybe I am just silly. I really thought I would put a dress on and "know" it was my dress. I didn't expect to cry or yell or anything like that, but I thought I would know when I found my dress.
But I didn't. Instead, I found tons of pretty dresses. I thought I had narrowed it down to two, found another dress and narrowed it down to two again. And nothing. I still didn't know which one was "the one."
I tried the whole "jack 'em up" thing with the veil and jewelry and the whole nine yards, and it didn't complete my decision. Finally, it was the end of the weekend and I had to be done. We were sitting at the bridal salon and my mom's flight was literally leaving in 90 minutes, so we had to be down for now.
The weekend wasn't a wash, but it wasn't what I expect. There were tears. Believe me, there were tears. I am not sure what comes next. Maybe I go by myself to the store? Maybe I put those two dresses back on with a friend? I don't know.

What was it like when you went shopping for your wedding dress? How many visits did it take you?
