Last weekend while I was in Arizona, Leslee, Carrie, Beth, Karen and my mom all went wedding dress shopping. Of course I was so sad I missed the fun. I made Karen text me pictures of each dress so I could give my opinion (because the phone pictures were so detailed I could garner a clear opinion ) It was a lot of fun.
Yesterday Leslee and I went back to the store where she had narrowed the selection down to two dresses. Dress A is a vintage lace victorian look that only Leslee can carry off. She has the height, figure, and posture to make the dress just — pitter-patter, pitter-patter — STUNNING. I LOVED it on her. I really think she just looks so beautiful in it. Mom, Dad (who also went, I’m told) and mother-in-law-to-be all agreed with me (or I agreed with them, I guess) and think that is the dress to get.
The second dress is equally gorgeous though, and Leslee seemed to lean a little more towards that one. It’s more of a traditional dress, with beautiful beading, and and empire waist with an A-Line skirt. There is an inset in the train of a slightly more ivory satin, and matching satin the folds of the waist line. It’s really lovely. She has a hard choice. But what ever one she chooses, she will make it beautiful with her grace.
