Crystal Cattle finds a wedding dress

The big day is getting closer. 

This past weekend my sister, my friend Dana, my mom and my future MIL all headed to Chicago for the search for a great white dress. And I found it!

Before the weekend I had actually not tried on any dresses, so I was pretty excited to start the adventure. The day started out with me trying on a dress I has saw on the TV show Say Yes to the Dress - I watch the show all the time. Well it turns out that the very first dress I tried on! I still kept all my appointments that day, but in the end we headed back to that same store and I bought that wonderful dress.

I loved in Mira Couture how all their dresses were displayed. 

Jenny Yoo was another great store with awesome dresses.

I am pretty sure it was meant to be because when I was trying on the dress for the final time I told my consultant that that I had saw the dress on the show, and that's when she told me she used to work at Kleinfeld's and knows all the people on the show!

I thought all this dress fabric was beautiful.

Now, no one will be seeing the dress until the big day. The Boy wants it to be a surprise until I walk down the aisle. We'll also be waiting to do our photos until after the ceremony! Therefore you will all be kept in suspense until April 7! However, I will tell you the dress came from Ultimate Bride and they were awesome.

  2. Thanks Kathy. It was an awesome day.

  3. We also did the no viewing before. Drew said he didn't ask for much for the wedding, but he didn't want to see me/dress before the wedding. :) Its sweet.

  4. I'm SO excited that you found your dress ;) Trust you had a blast in Chicago with the ladies.

  5. You will be a beautiful bride! ... And April 7th will be here before you know it!

  6. Congratulations, Crystal!! So excited for you! You're the second friend I have that ended up buying the very first dress she tried on this month. Maybe October is the lucky dress shopping month or something! :)


  7. Yay!!! I can't wait for pics. So happy for you and by that big smile on your face in the first pic, I can see you had a wonderful time :) Congrats Crystal!!!
