But I did it :) I paid for my wedding dress, veil, and all the undergarments and whatnot. It was a hefty price tag for this cheapskate, but not as much as I thought it was going to be!
I love it. I think I would have paid double for it! It is soft and romantic and a little different and fun! I cannot wait to share it with my fiance and with the world :D 364 days till I can do that, though, yikes! I know the year will fly by though.
I felt amazing in my dress. Even a few customers in the store complimented me! I never really know how to take it when an employee compliments me (because they are trying to sell me the dress, duh!). My future mother-in-law was super complimentary about it, saying it was perfect. And then, after I had bought the dress and gotten home, a friend from high school had happened to see me in the bridal store and facebook-ed me later about it (she didn't want to intrude). She said:
"This was legit my thought process. "Wow! That girl looks insanely beautiful in that gown. She is insane if she doesn't get it. I wonder if I should tell her... no, that's weird... wait. That looks like Jeanette!!! .. this is not the time to say hi."
Yay! I love that. I am so giddy inside :D I have this weird fear that people will talk about what a terrible dress I picked after the wedding... oh man, do I have mental demons to deal with.
But I think I love this dress so much, feel so beautiful and small and lovely in it, that it is pretty much outweighing my self-consciousness. I am sooooo ready to put it on for real!
Now, I just have to keep this body till this time next year so it fits perfectly. Motivation for sure!
I weighed in at 126 this morning. Feeling good about that. Would still like to be in the 120-125 range. I think I will get there in the next week or two. I am not traveling this week!!! That means all homemade, paleo, fresh, clean food.
The right food is so important for me, I'm glad I get this week to get back on track with it.
