That is the first time I've shopped for wedding dresses since I shopped for my own. Things have changed quite a bit in 21 years. First of all you pick out the dresses you like online and then they pull them out for you when you get there. She tried on about 7 dresses or so and ended up buying the second one she tried on. The whole experience was fun but nerve wracking!
Can't share any pictures since of course it's a surprise for the groom! Here's my scrapbook page from way back in the day.
Just my mom and I went shopping together for mine. We went to one store and I tried on two dresses. The first one I tried on was the one I bought. I worked in the fabric store back then so I spent a lot of time looking at the pattern books and knew what style I wanted before I even got in there.
After she was done picking out her dress yesterday we went over to Olive Garden. When I think of Olive Garden all I think about is the Italian Margaritas. Those things are the bomb. Although now I think my friend Carolyn actually makes better ones.
I had one of those, some salad and the "lighter" lasagna. I should have skipped the bread sticks because they really weren't that good but I had two. After not eating a lot of bread for so long now when I have something like that I realize that I wasn't missing much.
After lunch we came back to the bride's house and watched Magic Mike and had a glass of champagne. I still don't really like that movie. I've watched it several times and it's just depressing to me. I could just watch the dance scenes and fast forward the rest ;)
