It's Happening


In just 4 days something major will be happening.

My mom, sister-in-law, best friend (and Maid of Honor) from L.A., other friend from San Diego, another friend (and bridesmaid) from Oakland, and future mother-in-law will be WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING.

Did you catch all that?

Wedding. Dress. Shopping. For me. Michelle Lim, soon to be Michelle Dixon, will be trying on Wedding Dresses.

I don't know why that sounds so weird to me, but it does.

I've been a flower girl, I've been a bridesmaid (x4), I've been a guest (more times than I can count) - but never have I been The Bride. The one who stands in front. The one who goes shopping for a wedding dress.

And it boggles my mind, really. Like, I know I'm getting married in 8 months and 13 days, but maybe it just hasn't really hit me. We've sent save the dates, we've secured the venue, the flowers and food are done, but it still seems very foreign and far away to me.

Perhaps once I start putting on dresses it will hit me that this is actually happening? Or....it won't and then I'll blink and be standing at an altar saying, "I do." Who knows man.

But I want to soak up every second of this because (knock on wood) this is the only time I'll get to experience it and like everyone says, it's going to be over before I know it. I mean I still feel like I just got engaged yesterday, but alas, it's been almost 4 months!

Anyway - prepare to see your Instagram Feed blow up with some awesome pictures of me in dresses. I have this dream of finding a really ugly dress and posting it on Insty (bc I'm obsessed like that) to tell you all I found my dream dress....A little something like this perhaps:


Or this:


Or how about this:


Or my personal favorite:


Yes. That's the one.

Be ready.

xoxo

  4. It's probably not going to feel real until the actual wedding day. I just got married a few weeks ago and it never really hit me (for the same reasons you describe above - always being in/at the wedding, not the bride) until I was getting ready. It's a crazy feeling! Enjoy dress shopping!!!
