The first of us
This is probably the first time I realized that we're getting older. Yeah we all (well most of us) graduated and went on to get 9-5 jobs, this was really the first moment when it truly hit me.
David's Bridal @ Winston Salem
Ahead of time Ashley shared with me her Pinterest of what she was looking for wedding wise. She had already called ahead and knew that she wanted a A-Line dress but wasn't sure about the top or how decorative she wanted it. Being the AMAZING friend she is, she let take these pictures of her trying on dresses.
Getting closer and closer
After a few duds we reached this dress. It was high possibility. The only problem was that the dress was strapless. Ladies, as you know strapless dresses can be, tempremental to say the least. One of things Ashley and entire bridal party bonded over was our love for going out and dancing. So this was a hard pass.
Something to note
The "bling" around the dress? That was added on. The dress itself was plain (but gorgeous), our bridal dress consultant showed how the dress could be spruced up a bit with a simple detail. To say the least I fell in love with this bling. I was so close to purchase it on my own. To wear where you ask!? No clue. My being screamed that I needed it. Because it was shiny.
And then finally...
We found her. The perfect dress. Ashley couldn't take the dress off. She just glowed in it. She was confident. She looked FANTASTIC! This was it! She found it!
