This week’s Monday Soundtrack is extra special because I spent the past few days working on my own wedding plans! My parents flew in from Chicago to spend the weekend with us, and it was nothing short of perfect.
First of all, I know you’re wondering if I ended up popping that mini bottle of champagne with “the perfect dress” on the label. (Get the backstory on how much these mini bottles have made wedding planning much more enjoyable).
Well, the answer is: YES!!!!
The best part of the weekend was finding my wedding dress!!!! (I can’t put enough exclamation points at the end of that sentence – I’m just too excited). I intentionally waited until my mom was in town because I really wanted her there, along with my future mother-in-law and one of my bridesmaids. (Don’t get me wrong, I would have loved having ALL the girls there with me, but there are too many miles between all of us!)
And I’ll be honest. I was nervous walking in!! It’s one of those moments you know is going to happen, and you’re super excited but also unsure of the whole situation. Because it just seemed so surreal to me! And despite working with wedding dresses every single weekend, it’s a completely different experience picking my very own.
But I am thrilled to say we found THE dress! All I can say is it’s absolutely perfect, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. I have to keep everything else a secret because B can’t see it until our first look on the big day. But I can give you one hint: it’s from BHLDN!
This song seemed so appropriate for this week: “Marry Me” by Train.
