I'm committed

I went to the dress store by my house again and picked out a dress. Jenna the dress lady is nice, you can tell that she cares more about my happiness than making an extra buck. She's including everything; alterations, veil, headpiece, taxes. That means this brand new dress works out to be about the same as, or even cheaper than, that off the rack one I saw at Rainbow.

Sweetheart neckline, A-line cut, lace up the back; this dress has it all. Just wait, I am going to be the sexiest bride EVER.

Special thanks to Mom, who is financing the larger portion of the price.

I almost bought a dress yesterday

It was beautiful. Sweetheart neckline, gorgeous beadwork, lace up the back, a-line cut (very flattering on my figure). It was marked down to $699 and the lady said she'd be willing to go as low as $600 if we paid in full right away. We would have taken it if she'd included the alterations and a veil but she wouldn't go for it. I'm not made of money, lady. Money doesn't grow on trees. Insert other cliché expression having to do with money. I really want to have a gorgeous dress for the occassion but I don't want to have to live in a cardboard box on the street because I don't have the cash for rent and food.

I'll let them sweat a little and go back later.
