Well in the bitterly cold winter it’s hard to think in just a few months our feature bride Abbey will be heading down the aisle!
Abbey’s crossed a few more things off her to do list- the boys have their suits, the girls have their jewels and BIG NEWS! She found a dress! Following an advert in a bridal magazine (which proclaimed they had free champagne!) Abbey headed to a bridal store a few weekends ago…and there she found the dress of her dreams. Strapless and very princess like- very Abbey!
Unfortunately there was no champagne (false advertising! Don’t tempt the brides with bubbles!) and her dream dress was out of her price range (“Do we have to pay for the boys suits?” she asked “If not I can buy my dress!”)
We headed to the designer’s website and found a list of stockists and Abbey started contacting them- and it was a big win…a store in her city was willing to order in the dress at $1k cheaper!
So Abbey will be walking down the aisle in her dream dress… unfortunately she is still shoe-less and her bridesmaids are still dress-less. (Her anti bridesmaid like dress stance is hard to take when stores are full of winter woollies and no spring dresses!) and she has narrowed her photography search down to three!
Counting down the days!
