I did it!

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.

I heard you were wearing it to work today. What do your co-workers think? (other than the fact that you're a freaking looney). I'm sure they think you're beautiful. Do you have a veil on too or just the dress? I hope you don't get it caught in the chain of your bike when you take your lunch ride. Maybe you could bunch it up with a rubber band around your knees to make sure it doesn't get caught.
