Wow, thanks for all the dress advice, people! There are 22 comments on my last entry where I bitch and moan about finding a nice dress, which is by far and away a record for this blog. Who knew you all were such fashionistas? I’m like your own personal Barbie. Anyway, I got a lot of great tips, some links and I’ll be sure to let you guys know what I eventually settle on. There might even be some photos. Thanks again to everyone.
In response to one question, my mom is indeed a seamstress at the bridal shop. My mother is from a small Indiana town, and my grandmother made sure all seven of her daughters learned to sew. Mom made her own wedding gown and used to make me dresses when I was a little girl, but hasn’t really sewn much at home in the past decade. She’s going to be selling the house in the next couple months though, so I don’t really want to add “Make daughter a stunning dress” to her already overloaded list of things to do. However, she did say she’ll handle any alterations I need. Score!
