She Said YES to the Dress!

This weekend I had the pleasure of going wedding dress shopping with my sister.

Highlights of the day included:
The red velvet cake at lunch
Kristen looking STUNNING in every dress she tried on
Mimosas at the bridal salon
Watching the other girls trying dresses on...everyone's style/taste is so different!
Me taking a blusher out of the case to try on and mom saying in her "gritted teeth" voice, "Put that down before you get in trouble!!" :) I'm only 30...
The champagne toast they brought us once she found the dress! So fun.

And highlight numero uno....
Kristen, bursting into tears when she found The.One. Don't worry that my mom, Carole (her future MIL) and I all followed suit by bursting into tears too.




I love you, Sissy! You stunning bride, you!

so fun! I wish I could go wedding dress shopping again...I have such fond memories of being with my mom and trying on dress after dress!

Yay! Wedding dress shopping is the BEST! I just helped my soon-to-be-sister-in-law find her wedding dress. And yes, lots of happy tears were shed. Some by her, but mainly by me. I'm a blubbering mess in a bridal salon. :)

So exciting! I can't wait to go wedding dress shopping with my sister someday! I imagine it's much more fun to shop with the bride than as the bride. You get to sit on the comfy couch and "oooohhh" and "ahhh" rather than struggle in and out of a million dresses. I am sure your sister will be a gorgeous bride!

What a great time! And how exciting to be there for "the one". Brings back great memories.

So fun!! I love wedding dresses & could hang out in a bridal all day and be perfectly content. Where did you get your white shirt? I am on the hunt for tunics & love that!

Aww now that sounds like an amazing time, dress shopping with your sister! I look forward to doing this when I shop for my dress with my sister!

So fun! I'll be doing this with my baby sis in January, and I know I will most certainly be a.) drinking too much bubbly b.) bawling my eyes out.

Such a special day :)
