My Wedding Dress Story
I met my husband-to-be in 2006 through mutual friends at church. Our first date was a picnic at a park. Afterward we took a walk on a trail around a pond. I was a very shy person who rarely went on dates but talking with John felt natural. He was sweet, funny and a good listener. We both loved animals and spending time outside. After our date, I realized he was someone very special. Only eight months later we were engaged.
As our August wedding approached, I started dress shopping online to look at styles. I was set against trying on any strapless dresses because I didn't think they would look good on me. At first, I fell in love with a dress with cap sleeves. My mom went with me to the bridal store during a sale and we found the dress to try on. I also picked two more, including a strapless because it was in my size and I loved beading design on the dress. I thought maybe I could add sleeves if I really loved it.
To my surprise, when I tried on my pick from online, I didn't like it at all. However, I loved the strapless dress so much that after trying on all the dresses I'd picked out, I tried it on one more time. Looking at myself in the mirror, I could only smile. It was my dress. Now, I think I didn't really know what I wanted until I actually tried the dresses on. If I hadn't been willing to step outside the box and try out something new, I never would have found the perfect dress for me. Now my husband and I have been married 14 years. I'm so glad God brought us together.
