There are many dresses in a girls life -one must have a dress for every special occasion- baby dedication,first day of school,Ballet recital, Easter dress ,Prom dress,sorority dresses and the list goes on. But THE most important dress is THE Wedding Dress. I spent the last 2 days on a search for THE dress. As you know my oldest niece Sarah is getting married in October. So off the girls in our family went to find THE dress.Being the sure minded and know what I want girl Sarah had made a design board of dresses she liked and wanted to see in person and try on. There was one that really caught her fancy and wanted to find it most of all. We looked the first day and felt like we were getting no where fast. Feeling a little down the second day off we went saying little prayers all the way, to find a store named -LuLu's.I think from the first moment of walking in the door we all felt at home, could be because it was in a wonderful old cottage in down town Dallas(of all places).Once again we started the search. No lace, No organza, No sparkles, No sleeves, No poofs - all she wanted was a simply wonderful, beautiful dress that made her feel like a gorgeous Bride.The second dress she tried on was a dress that looked very familiar to her but she was not sure. We could hear her excitement as she got into her dress and as she walked out -I knew this was THE dress -and yes it was on her design board and was her favorite.Sarah had found THE dress of her dreams. WE ALL got goose bumps and yes a few tears came to the baby blues. I had seen this little girl in a lot of dresses in her life but NEVER this beautiful of one. I was a proud Aunt, I could not look at sister Brenda because I knew we would loose it. We all just kinda soaked it in a while and then we squealed because Sarah had found THE dress to marry the love of her life.The ladies of the store did the cutest thing as we were getting ready to leave -they played the Wedding march and blew bubbles all over her- smiles were all around and I do believe I had never seen Sarah look so happy and a little relieved...Dreaming of the day in October when she gets to walk down the Aisle in her simply wonderful dress and marry her Major Joe. You will just have to wait till then to see her in THE dress.
