I’ve often heard people say that their wedding day was the best day of their life. I didn’t believe it until our big day finally came.
March 12, 2010: The proposal came unexpectedly. Completely. My family flew out to Palm Springs, California for a week-long family vacation of golfing, tanning and relaxing. My then-boyfriend Josh met us out there and (to make a long story short) popped the big question overlooking the beautiful Shadow Ridge Golf Course within hours of our arrival.
The next day, since Josh and I (crazily) decided to plan our wedding for August 2010, the planning began. Our vacation turned into one big wedding planning festival. My poor dad hung in there with my mom and I as we immediately started compiling the guest list, possible venue choices, photographers, caterers, florists… and on and on. Overwhelming to say the least.
My life became a constant blur of color schemes, budget sheets, wedding gowns and cupcakes. I remember somewhere in the midst of all the craziness telling one of my bridesmaids that “anyone who says that this wedding planning stuff is fun, is seriously delusional.” Then, I found it. “THE DRESS.” The moment where your breath catches and you know that you found the dress you’ll be wearing when you promise to spend the rest of your life with the man you love more than anything in the world. It’s indescribable. When the woman helping me at The Wedding Shoppe saw the look on my face, she knew. I turned to her and said, “Do I pay now or later?” And that was it. August 6, 2010: Our wedding day. The whole day came and went like a flash of lightning. It was short but spectacular. Walking down the aisle, I felt the presence of everyone I love, standing up for Josh and I, supporting us as we made the ultimate commitment to each other. And in that one moment, when we looked at each other, the world stopped for us. Just for a minute, one incredible minute.

The Wedding Shoppe Inc is a great place to go if you are searching for your wedding party attire. They certainly helped the entire wedding party; I was involved with, from the bride’s dress to the groomsmen tuxes. My three best friends and I went, along with the bride’s mother to pick out bridesmaid dresses. The two other bridesmaids and I had been looking for months on the website trying to gather ideas for the dresses, we had limited parameters from the bride; midnight blue was the color, and we had decided on a cocktail length dress. Therefore, when we went into The Wedding Shoppe for our appointment, the consultant was very helpful in pointing us towards the best designers who would have just the perfect color. All three bridesmaids have very different body styles; one is 5’9” and the other two are 5’3”. The consultant was extremely helpful in knowing that we just needed to begin to try on dresses until we found the perfect one for all three of us! Lucky we did! When taking our measurements, the consultant was great, she really made you think about what size to get, which would look best on you, not worrying about the numbers! She then pointed out the vender finder on the website, where we could find an alterations specialist, if we needed one after the dresses came in. I defiantly used the vender finder; I knew I would need to have my dress shortened, even at the cocktail length. I used the website to find a vendor who would be not only affordable but close to where I lived making appointments very convenient. All in all The Wedding Shoppe, Inc is a wonderful store with a very attentive and dedicated staff. I thank them for all their help and I cannot wait to use them for the time when my special day comes!
