Hello my beauties,
It dawned on me as I recently picked up my wedding dress (Booty wins! It now fits like a glove!), that is the last time I will ever be in a bridal store trying on my dress, the last time I will be nip and tucked by the seamstress and the last time I will be a bride-to-be in a bridal store. So i decided to savour the moment for as long as I could and linger for a little while longer. Holding onto that giddy excitement for a few more minutes. As I was savouring the moment, a new bride-to-be walked in with her mother and two-year-old son for the first time, looking at all the array of beautiful dresses like candy in a candy store, I glanced over to her and gave her a knowing smile, feeling a sense of sadness. Even Sheila (the owner of the store) became a little teary eyed when she said goodbye and handed over my dress to me – the end of a journey for her too! (I am pretty sure I will be back there with my wedding album, I’ve had such a wonderful experience at BOA Boutique, I will miss going back there, so any excuse and I am sure I will visit! )
As I walked down Richmond High Street, with my wedding dress carrier firmly on my shoulder, I got a few stares and stopped by excited women on the street asking if i was carrying a wedding dress and by excited staff in a little pastry cafe (yes I was eating cake!) sending congratulations and asking when i was getting married. It didn’t take long for that sadness to completely diminish and excitement for the new journey to start bubbling through. Alas, a wonderfully exciting wedding dress shopping journey has come to an end….which can only mean one thing….MY WEDDING IS ALMOST HERE!
As my own wedding draws closer and closer, I indeed have to focus on the last minute planning bits and get down to business! As such, since it is just me myself and I that runs Nu Bride, you may start to notice a slight infrequency with posts (unless I am suffering from insomnia). But don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about my dear readers and have a wonderful selection of personal and guest posts to keep you entertained over my wedding and honeymoon period. I will also start a wonderful wedding report for you all when I get back to earth! Any enquiries that I get during the time I am in wedded and honeymoon bliss, I will of course respond to with delight on my return.
How fast has this year gone? The euphoria and adrenaline are immense! This is one excited bride-to-be! Thank you all so much for following my personal journey and for continuing to support Nu Bride! ;o)
