Come dress yourself in love, let the journey begin...

Yesterday morning, I woke up earlier than I normally would on a day off...

Truth be told though, I had trouble sleeping and couldn't wait for my alarm sound. The feeling can be compared to the one you get the night before Christmas... pure excitement. But why on a random Friday would I be so excited to wake up? Because I had an appointment at the bridal salon to try on my wedding dress...

Not just trying on gowns to find 'the' one. Not the sample one of 'the' gown. MY gown!

The beautiful ivory dress I will walk down the aisle wearing as I become a wife.

I can't even explain how happy I was to be putting on my dress. While trying on the sample, it was so big that it was tough to imagine the whole picture. Even though I need to get it shortened a little, I was able to see my dress, on me, without large clips holding it on.

After staring at myself in the mirror for a good 15 minutes, we decided to look at some veils. I had found one previously that I liked but as my mom pointed out yesterday, it didn't go perfectly with my dress. After she said something, I noticed exactly what she was talking about. I tried on a few more veils and once the 5th one was put on, I knew it was the one. It goes perfectly with my dress!

For the first time since Beau and I got engaged, I finally felt like a bride!

And it's one of the best feelings in the world!

I think I had it on for about an hour - I just didn't want to take it off! Come on, August 2013!

Since I can't risk Beau seeing the dress, this is all you get...
