It Rang My Bell

Heh...amazingly it went very well. I picked up Lil Duck from her father, grabbed my Momma and my sister and headed to that one place.

You know...the one place that can suck thousands of dollars from your life is full of excitement and happiness and hopes and promises. The bridal store.

Yep... I did it. Lil Duck and I are getting married and the little diva absolutely HAD to have a dress!! Interestingly enough, she is the one wearing the veil. I opted for no veil. Instead, Lil Duck shall wear the tiara and veil as we sashay down the aisle.

Because I know you all share enthusiastically in my joy and are living vicariously through me, as well as being just plain nosy, Greta and MamaMash's iPPP phone photo phun link up is the perfect opportunity to share a bit.

This is the dress Lil Duck chose. She has such fabulous taste! Make no mistake, 
the girl DOES know what she likes and dislikes. She refused to even 
entertain ANY dress with a bow of any kind on the back.

This is the back of a dress I did not choose. 

I didn't choose this one either. 

And while the idea of a Birdcage head piece is fun and retro, I did not choose this either. I did pick a dress and purchase it. This shop has a big ceremony, well not big but there is fanfare for the final decision being made. I was handed a bell, told to make a wish and ring the bell heralding my selection. I personally think its just their way of auditorally adding to the "Cha-Ching" of the register adding up everything needed.

You'll just have to wait for the big reveal to see what rang my bell. Teehee

What fun, funkery, mischief, mayhem and/or beauty did you capture with your phone this week?!

She is the cutest lil thing! Perfect dress choice for her <3

Oh this is too fun. I just finished up four stories for a Wedding Guide so for once in 24 years I am up on bridal trends. I love the neckline of the last one. I did the big feature on vintage gowns. And new gowns that are in vintage style. (and that short veil and heat piece you are wearing.) Little Duck is adorable. I bet she is so excited and with the dress she is flying high. Can't wait to see the one you chose.

Terri Sonoda said...
