Well, I've finally bit the bullet and agreed to go dress shopping next week. Jen and I are going to partner up and tear through San Francisco next Tuesday.
Did you know that you need to make appointments to visit most of these places? (Ok, did I just reveal my utter cluelessness about wedding stuff?!) Needless to say, I've got a lot of dress research to do before our big shopping extravaganza!
We're going to the Bridal Galleria, Haute Bride... then the day gets a little hazy to me after that... but the crowning piece will be our visit to The Glamour Closet. I'm totally excited about this place and had read about it before I even knew I was going to get a chance to go there. This is a place that sells brand new designer wedding gowns that happened to be samples. This means big discounts on fabulous dresses!
I can't wait to hang out with Jen, and I fully expect the dress hunt to be adrenalizing and demoralizing all at the same time.
I'm your garden variety tomboy doctor, who happens to have lucked out by finding the man of her dreams. For the first time ever I'm reveling in the world of wedding planning, but mostly I just want to throw a kick-ass party for and with my friends and family!
I'm the pirate (thanks to some distant pirate lineage) and he's the pear (thanks to his last name). The combination makes for great fun!
