Really? Is that really how long it takes? How can it take that long??!
Well between work, travels, and the schedules of my MOH and mother, we didn't end up setting foot in a bridal salon until today, and the big day less than six months away!!! We decided to start at Kleinfeld's (www.kleinfeldbridal.com) (yes, the NY bridal salon that is featured on the TLC show 'Say Yes to the Dress!') When I made the appointment, I was given the option to agree to have my experience videotaped for possible inclusion in the show. I declined, as I didn't anticipate it was going to be a terribly exciting or dramatic visit.
I also expected it to be the first of many visits.
I met my mom at Penn Station this morning, armed with a folder of nearly 50 pictures that I had spent yesterday tearing out of the bridal magazines that start to accumulate in one's apartment shortly after you become engaged. We walked to Kleinfeld's, where we met the lovely Sarah Velazquez, who escorted us to a dressing room.
Yes To The Dress EnglandI explained to Sarah what I am not (a cinderella poofy skirt kind of bride), and what kind of wedding dress I was hoping to find (something simple, elegant, with clean lines, and, of course, beautiful). I showed her all of the pictures I had brought with me, explaining what I liked about each one. After our chat, Sarah excused herself to pulled 5 dresses for me to try on, and it didn't take her very long!
Dress 1 - not really
Dress 2 was layers of chantilly lace and very form fitting. It was beautiful!
Dresses 3 and 4 were so-so - I liked elements of them, but there were definitely things that I didn't like. At this point I thought for sure I'd be going back to Dress 2.
Until I tried Dress 5, and it was not only beautiful, but perfect. It is the perfect dress. And I could picture the whole day in that dress! Darcy and mom approved (and I think at least two of us were getting a little teary at that point)
Said Yes To The Dress
And that was it! We paid a deposit on the dress. Although Sarah said it was not necessary to pay a rush fee, I still had to sign a waiver that relieved the store of any liability should the dress not arrive in time (really). She gave me a list of seamstresses, and while waiting in the lobby I called the next store on my list, where we had an appointment in 1 hour, and cancelled my appointment!
