Other than the vendors, I have started to gather decor items, picked out bridesmaid dresses, and booked our honeymoon to Punta Cana. AND my most favorite part, I got my own dress. 😍 I will admit that before I went wedding dress shopping, I was not all that excited because I had no idea what to expect. Last Saturday me, my mom, some of my bridal party, my grandmother, my future MIL, and a family friend went shopping. At first we went to a shop here in Charlotte called NY Bride and Groom and we had an AWFUL experience. You don’t have to make an appointment there so all of the associates are helping 5 different people at once and it is just chaos. I did try on quite a few dresses there, mostly in the style that I thought I wanted, and then we left.
Next I had an appointment at Poffie Girls in Gastonia and our experience there was excellent. And this time, I did have an appointment. So I arrived to Poffie Girls, checked in, and they assigned one associate to help me. At this point I didn’t know what style dress I wanted. Therefore, I let my associate, Vicki, know that I was okay with her picking any dresses that she thought would look good on me. I was willing to try anything on!
The first dress she brought me was the complete opposite of my style. It was also opposite of anything I thought I would want in a dress. But I tried it on anyways. I immediately fell in love but thought as soon as I walked out, no one else would like it. Right when I stepped out and showed everyone the dress, they immediately started gushing about how much they loved it. The more they went on and on about it, the more I realized that it was MY wedding dress. So shoutout to Vicki at Poffie Girls, you know exactly what you are doing and I appreciate you!
As soon as I got my dress, things started to feel a lot more real to me. There is still SO much left to do! But, I am so excited that things are falling into place. And even more excited that in 136 days, I get to marry Bennett”
