A Gown Named Jezebel

I'm so pathetic.I remember being at the bridal shop a while ago and saying to everyone, "When I get married, I'm going to wear this dress" about a particular dress that was expected to arrive at the store. I saw it in the catalog and just thought "wow!" When it came in, it was even more beautiful than I could've imagined. As soon as Future Hubbs slipped the ring on my finger I made it a point to try to the dress on. Great success! It was perfect - I felt perfect. But no...finding my wedding could never be so simple. People try on tons of dresses...I was supposed to try on more than one right? I felt like I needed to keep going.

And so, since getting engaged last year I've tried on many dresses (because I thought I was supposed to ... I guess) - picking at them, loving them, and then deciding it's not the one for me. I even fell out of love with "Jezebel" which is the nickname that my friend/co worker/bridesmaid and I nicknamed her (the dress). A year and a half from the wedding has now turned into about six months and it was now or never. The other day I stayed after work with my bridesmaid and we went over my top two choices one more time. They didn't do it for me anymore.

I asked for Jezebel just for the hell of it. She was perfect. I fell in love all over again. I also realized that with all the other dresses that I tried on, I kept making changes to them so that they would resemble Jezebel.
I apoligized to Jezebel. for turning my back on her.
Mom called out sick today from work, so I took as an opportunity to drag her over to the shop to order my dress. I couldn't be happier. I felt great. The dress has been ordered and paid in full...now all I can do is wait for her arrival.

Oh Jezebel...I love u!

ps: hope this post makes sense, I'm sleep deprived...6 weeks till graduation

I love it! My dress was the first one i tried on. I tried on several more (because, like you, I thought that I was supposed to!) but I kept referring to my first dress as "my dress". It was just meant to be!
