Twenty-three days until DDS-Day! As in Dreaded Dress Shopping-Day! Yes, December 6th...that's the day my daughter and I head into the Windy City (Chicago) to look for my dress for her wedding in March.
My daughter-in-law and I went with my daughter when she picked out her wedding dress. She tried on three dresses and said, "I'll take this one!"
Are you kidding me???
My daughter-in-law looked at me like, "No way! She can't make a decision just like that! We need to go look around. We have to go to more shops and maybe after trying on fifty dresses then she can pick one!"
But nope! That isn't how my daughter does things. The dress was gorgeous, it looked amazing on her, and the price was right....so why go anywhere else?
Well, I've already told my daughter that she better wear her walking shoes, because I know December 6th will be nothing like that!
You see, I am NOT a dress kind of girl. I'm a blue jeans, t-shirt, sweatpants, sweatshirt, barefoot kind of girl! The last time I wore a dress was for my son's wedding three years ago. I don't remember any other times...oh, yes I do....my wedding in 1972!
I just don't do dresses!
In an attempt to prepare me for our big day my daughter has been e-mailing me pictures of dresses....dozens and dozens of dresses.....Hmmmmm....didn't see any I wanted.
Now, her wedding is a bit more casual, so at least I don't have to wear a long dress and I can guarantee you there will be no sequins, no jacket, no phoofy fabric, no fluff, no frills...UGH...just thinking about it puts me in a state of utter terror!
So, I will continue to count down the days to DDS-Day. I will look at all of the pictures she sends me and on December 6th we will head downtown. Somehow, someway, I will come home with a dress that day, because I am only going dress shopping one time. Think this one will work?
