[If this kinda thing bores you, skip down the photos of the Antique Cafe at Churchill House!]
I finally got to go wedding dress shopping this past weekend. My sister flew here specially for the Big Shopping Event (she goes to university in a different province) and I had made appointments at three different bridal shops. And here are my thoughts ...
I thought I'd found The One at shop #1, but it was kinda over the budget (sigh...). At shop #2 we were trying to convince ourselves we'd found The One, and we paid the holding fee to keep it there for a week, and I went away thinking we'd probably get that one, even though it wasn't as amazing as over-the-budget-dress. But at shop #3 the awesomely lovely lady who was helping me into dresses was busy telling me about the "wow" moment. She said, "I can't really describe it, but I know it happens, and when you find the right dress you'll just go ... wow." And as she finished saying that and finished lacing up the back of the dress I was currently in, I said, "Yeah, um, I think this is the wow dress!" And as I walked out and looked in the long mirror, I actually started getting teary, and then so did my sister, and my mom! And we all knew ... this is the wow dress :-)
Teeheee! Now we need to find a venue (as our original plan has sadly fallen through ...).
In between the shops of the Big Shopping Event, my mom organized for us to go to this little antique place for lunch - The Antique Cafe at Churchill House. Everything is old and nothing matches and it's just plain awesome!!
Don't you love it? :-)
