Some wedding planning bliss!
I am in looooooove!! I found my dress and my shoes!
Finding my dress was actually a great story...it's such a cliche' when they say that you know it when you find it. But that's what happened with me. I tried on a total of 4, and actually liked 2. The manager called them in just to find out that my most fave, the darling little lace number would be coming in only 4 days before the big day! I was devastated but talked myself into getting the 2nd dress, signed the contract, and left. 10 minutes later, I get a call , and they said the dress company switched the wedding gowns by mistake! And it was meant to be! I will have my dress! Yay!!
My shoes, too, had a nice ending! I have really wide feet and gone were the days of wearing high shoes. But I didn't want this for my big day, and money wouldn't be an object as long as I get comfortable, but wonderful-looking shoes. I even searched the designer websites to no avail! But one day, my friend and I were shopping at
Santana Row. She was telling me about a posh shoe place that sold comfortable high end shoes, and I told her about this Orthopedic doctor I saw on TV who designed awesome shoes. We were talking about the same place/person! Enter Taryn Rose...I love that store! I found my unconventional and very unique looking wedding shoes...and they were comfortable. You can see my full review of the store at Yelp.
