  1. I loved shopping for wedding dresses! Found mine the first day….and you KNOW when you find it. I stepped out of the dressing room and my mom looked up, tears sprang in her eyes, and she whispered “oh Lori, that HAS to be the one!”
    I still have the dress. Unfortunately, not the man. Or the mom. C’est la vie.

  2. Shopped for Erin’s prom dress last week. UGH! I cannot even imagine what wedding dress shopping will be like. It was a last ditch shopping before we decided I would make it. Well. In the end I found a dress that I knew was a color that would look great on her, but the style was a little bit, well, not very traditional or anything close to what she was looking for. She didn’t want to try it at.all. She caved though and when she walked out of the dressing room I could tell by the look on her face that we had a sale. Same thing with Gillian. They try it on to shut me up and then end up buying the dress. Will it be the same with the weddings?

  3. My Mom made mine including ALL the beading on the lace!!! I never got any further than the magazine pages when it came to shopping.

  4. How exciting. I remember shopping for both of my daughter’s wedding gowns. We went all over the south looking and finally found “the” dress—one in Greenville, SC and the other one in Birmingham, AL. How much time do you have?

  5. I am not ready for this. But also, I somehow missed that one of your girls was engaged! She is going to be gorgeous, no matter what. It’s lovely that you are documenting the process. I don’t think I’d have the forethought or capability — AND the whole thought of this task is daunting to me.

  6. Planning my daughter’s wedding with her was one of THE most wonderful times we had together…ever! I cried when she tried on the first dress as I wondered where all the years had gone. It seemed like just yesterday…
    Enjoy the journey…it’s the best!!!
