ready to commit...

So I did it, well I will be doing it. Committing to my dress! I will be purchasing it this Friday the 27th! Maybe it's my lucky day, it's also my daughter Emmys Birthday!
My dress quest has been a long and painful one to say the least. I kept waiting for that "moment". I had it with my black and white dress but it scared me. I am different for sure. Our relationship is different as well. I wanted my gown to be different too..so i thought. Then I kept having second thoughts. Would I look back in 20 years wondering what the hell was I thinking? I was scared I would. I love mermaid and trumpet styles. They give me curves, but at 5ft 8 inches and only 112 pounds..I look stupid in them. I also have a displaced hip and Scoliosis. This makes my hips through any dress in that style. It makes me look even more skinny that before. NOT the look I want at all. I wanted something that looked "wedding-ish". My Fiance created that word wedding-ish. It has always stuck with me.
I wanted class, modern, elegant and something different. I didnt want a cookie cutter dress. They were all looking the same to me.
I went to the salon to look one last time. I was ready to throw in the towel and just settle on a dress. The sales consultant took me into the back room determined to help me find my vision. Something with a drop waist, a ball gown style skirt, something to hide  my bad hips, comfortable, in budget and a little bling. Thats a HUGE request isnt it? I didnt think it existed.
Then..I saw one. I put it on. It wasnt even zipped up yet and I started grinning from ear to ear. She clipped me in the dress and I said
OH MY GOD!! I then walked into the lobby to the large mirror with all the lighting. I started dancing and jumping up and down, spinning and getting so excited! the sales lady started to laugh at me and said
"Shayne this IS your dress girl!"
I squealed..
IT IS!! IT IS!! I LOVE THIS DRESS!!
That was it. I had never agreed in all this time when a sales person said "This is your dress". I had heard it before but never committed to that phrase.
I DID NOW!
This dress excites me, I look at it all day and night at random times and smile like a dork every time I see it again. Friday I get it, I get it at 25% off for the day after Thanksgiving sale! The first 12 brides to purchase get a free headpiece or veil..wow, a FREE headpiece..YES!!
So here it is ladies. OK, I know I have said this before but this time is different. This time its REAL. This time
I SAID YES TO THE DRESS!
