Today I yelped " bridal stores close to me"
found one, called in, made and appointment and went there.
I popped into the mall close to me before I went to do a bit of shopping and calm my self.
I walked into the changing room at H&M ( side bar super excited about the Balmain X HM)
And this woman just starts going off about how pretty I am.
People compliment me often about what I look like. But the honesty and how heart felt this compliment was- I was just floored and thrown off emotionally.
Fastforward to the bridal saloon- And I am glad I chose this saloon
It was small and intimate and the bridal stylist looked at me and said- Your body is AMAZING, we are going to have a good problem fitting you.
And I'm Like OK.
So I pick out a bunch of trumpet dresses.
They fit OK, but meh.
Then I try on the mermaid dresses- Very very very nice.
The bridal stylist then says- Look I know you want all your ex's to DIE
( When she asked me the look I was going for- I said I want ALL my exes to see me and cry blood; and all my husband's exes to see me and ask God why them- for real)
BUT you need to try on this dress- Its a mermaid dress in a 12- slightly big for you but we will clamp with a princess ball gown in the sheerest tulle train.
Children of God
I tried on this dress.
And started getting emotional ( currently tearing up and I type this)
But as a hard girl, I didn't want to cry,
then two people are walking past the bridal store while I'm looking in the mirror and they pop in and say - OMG you are so beautiful, the dress is so beautiful, you look like a princess.
cue water works.
Ariel my bridal stylist was tactful enough not to mention that I was crying while she fit the veil on.
But Trust Nigerians ( I went with my sister), and she was like - " Ah you are crying, who beat you"
Anyway It was a beautiful dress.
But I did not buy any one since I am just looking around.
I am contemplating going to beverly hills tomorrow to try on some more dresses.
I have a 2pm appointment with a really nice asian designer- So excited about that.
But once I left the bridal saloon, I went to get some mc donalds abeg.
Bridal dress shopping is emotionally draining.
But I am thankful that I am able to experience it with family.
Ps- Pamela you were right; the stylist said she had never seen anyone with that fit ever before.
