My Wedding Gown and Tiaras from Outer Space
My mom and I found the perfect dress just four days after the proposal. David's Bridal was having a sale. Mom and I were just going to have a look, and the teenage romantic in me couldn't wait to try on my first gown. I was looking for something simple, something classic. It was easy to choose, actually; it was the fourth or fifth one and the only one where mom and I both started crying. It also was the most comfortable by a landslide. It's ivory, beaded lace. The photo is from the catalog. I have a much shorter veil. They had beautiful tiaras but SHEESH - they were @ $200! Are they from Mars? Get real! That's 1/3rd of what my mom paid for the dress! She loved it on me and said with a nervous smile that she would also buy it if I wanted it. I assured her that we will both have fun looking around for the best discount on one.
I admit - the little girl in me has always wanted to be princess just for one day - so I want a tiara.
I've already found some on Amazon that are under $15! That's worth it for me to get a couple to try on, then maybe save for bellydancing. There's also the accessory stores at the malls.
