I found it, guys…I found my perfect WEDDING DRESS!!! ? I still can’t believe I found it, the whole thing feels very surreal. Believe it or not, it took a lot for me to even start looking at dresses. It was the one thing that totally stressed me out. Why? Because I had a full list of things I didn’t want for my dress yet had absolutely no idea what I actually did want. If that even makes sense. I knew it was crunch time and had to figure out somewhere to start looking beings that our wedding is only 8 months away and most dresses take 6-7 months. The plan was to look for dresses when my mom and sister were both here in California the week of July 11th…
I’ve been obsessed with Grace Loves Lace wedding gowns since before I even meet Peter. Beings that they are based out of Australia I was either going to have to order a dress online without trying it on before (umm, no!) or fly to Australia for a wedding dress, which is really high maintenance. Since both of those options were out of the question, I sadly gave up on Grace Loves Lace. Then the BEST THING EVER happened! They opened up their very first showroom in the United States in LA on July 5th!!! I literally found out the day of that they were even coming to the US and only 1 hour away from me. I died! How freakin’ meant to be is that? The week before I start looking for dresses? SO MEANT TO BE!
So my mom, sister and I all drove to LA in hopes that Grace Loves Lace was all that I thought it would be. And it was. It was even better! Their showroom is the dreamiest bridal salon in the world – I’m sure of it. It couldn’t have been more perfect. We had the whole space to ourselves, sipping champagne and fully enjoying the moment together. Ana, who is the sweetest + cutest human, helped me try on 5 dresses. I loved them all, but the third one I tried on we all really loved. So I went back to it and tried it on again and it just felt so “me”, it felt like the dress was simply meant for me to marry Peter in. My mom, sister and I are so close and we know each other so well I think we all read each others mind and said “YES!” to the dress via brain waves. Ana was like wait, this is it? This is the one? And together we all three said YES, like it was obvious for us. I hate to be cheesy but the day was magical ?
Thanks for reading my loves! I am so excited to take you on this wedding journey with me. More wedding talk coming soon! Xoxo. (PS. I would encourage all brides to document finding your dress! I absolutely love that we took a bunch of pictures since it too is such a special day!)
