Real Wedding: The Dress

Real Wedding: The Dress

When it came to a wedding dress, I knew I did not want a strapless dress because I never felt comfortable in strapless and when I dance, I really like to shake it.

Strapless was out of the question.

After I eliminated that piece, I narrowed my options down to about a million other types of styles. I made an appointment at a bridal salon, just my mother and myself, and tried on three very different dresses.

One a mermaid style, another with intense beadwork with an A line and lastly an extremely simple dress of which I have little memory of. Nothing was happening.

There were no fireworks or strobe lights.

What there was, was one dress hanging on the wall by itself in a protective bag. All that was visible was the tiered lace train, which was enough to make anyone do a double take.

My mother asked the consultant about it and the next thing I knew, I was in a Lazaro laced ivory gown with capped sleeves and the perfect scalloped V neckline. 

It was me. 

It fit my body type, it flowed, it allowed me room for dancing and all while feeling beautiful. 

It was the perfect dress.
