I worked up the courage, took the dress out of the box, downed a couple shots of tequila (kidding!!) and tried on my wedding dress.
There in my closet, wearing flip-flops, a shamefully dingy bra, stringy hair after my lunch-time run, full of dread and cursing both Ben and Jerry, I slipped it on and.....
I looked just like this. Ok, that's a slight exaggeration, but
It. is. gorgeous.
I couldn't believe it. It fits like a dream, the fabric (silk) drapes beautifully, and the style somehow makes me look 10 inches taller and 20 pounds thinner.
I think I may simply never take it off.
