IT’S CALLED BZGETTINGHITCHED – THE Dress

image

This is a great quote that illustrates perfectly how I felt about my dress. It says : “If you feel goose bumps on your skin without it being touched, it means a YES from your soul”

I didn’t have any idea of the dress I wanted. I kept browsing the internet only to gather images of so many different styles that I couldn’t clearly identify what I wanted. I was in for a long search. Or so I thought….

I made a few appointments at different stores for the same week and the first one was at Jenny Packham. I loved a lot of her gowns but there was one specifically that I really wanted to try on. When we got there, the lady had prepared the dress I asked to see, but she looked at me and immediately picked up another one and said I should try it on. I took the dress she gave me but still wanted to check the others at the store. 

When I got to the dressing room, the first dress that was given to me to try on wasn’t the one I previously wanted to see, I obliged and decided to try this one anyway.

When I got in front of the mirror I can’t even exactly describe how I felt. It was so overwhelming, I have no words. Goose bumps all over, tears in my eyes, princess thoughts in my mind, and of course HIM. I could see my Love look at me walking down the aisle. I stood there, crying with my best friend and maid of honor, and even got a tear out of the sales lady. She said she saw me in the dress as soon as I entered the store :) I thought those things only happened in movies but apparently not!

I then thought, ok, maybe this is happening because I had never seen myself in a wedding dress. Maybe it’s not just the dress. So I started to try on a few others I had selected. 

The one I originally wanted to try on, I didn’t like on me. They had a ton of beautiful dresses and I tried them all on and NONE made me feel as the first one did.

So I knew right then and there it was THE ONE. 

I canceled all the appointments I had at the other stores, and that’s how, in minutes, I chose my wedding dress.

It is the “Dentelle” by Jenny Packham

See for yourself,

Esta frase enquadra se perfeitamente na historia da escolha do meu vestido de noiva…. :)

Não tinha ideia nenhuma daquilo que queria. Quando decidi começar a ver vestidos, fui vendo na net e seleccionando algumas fotos de vestidos que gostava. Nessa seleção havia tantos estilos diferentes que eu não conseguia identificar aquilo que queria realmente. Preparava se uma grande “busca”, pensava eu….

Quando decidi começar a experimentar marquei para a mesma semana várias provas em lojas de marcas diferentes. A primeira foi na Jenny Packham. Havia muitos vestidos dela que eu gostava mas especialmente um que queria muito experimentar. Quando lá chegámos, já tinham de lado o vestido que eu queria, mas a senhora que nos atendeu olhou para mim e pegou logo noutro vestido. Seleccionei mais uns quantos e quando fui para o provador o primeiro que me foi entregue foi o tal que a senhora me tinha sugerido. 

Quando saí e me olhei ao espelho… Nem consigo bem descrever aquilo que senti. Arrepios, muita emoção, lágrimas nos olhos, pensamentos de princesa na cabeça e sobretudo ELE. Via-o a olhar para mim enquanto caminhava para o altar :) Fiquei ali a chorar, com a minha melhor amiga e madrinha, e até uma lagrimita da senhora da loja que disse que assim que me viu entrar, viu NESSE vestido. Pensei que essas coisas só acontecessem nos filmes mas não!

Mesmo assim, ainda achei que essa emoção toda se devia ao facto de nunca me ter visto de noiva antes e que talvez sentisse a mesma coisa com outros vestidos.

Experimentei aquele que tinha seleccionado de inicio (Que não me ficava nada bem) e mais um montão deles, todos lindos, mas nenhum me fez nem de perto o efeito que o primeiro me fez.

Percebi logo aí que tinha encontrado O VESTIDO. Desmarquei todas as provas que tinha marcado para essa semana, e foi assim que em minutos escolhi o meu vestido de Noiva :)

É o “Dentelle” da Jenny Packham

Love,

B.

I had my hair up for the ceremony because I wanted the details in the back to be more visible, and took the veil off and let my hair down right after it.

I also fell in Love with this hairpiece at Jenny Packhamimage
