Sunday morning we decided to leave the lake early and head for home. My four children who still live with me were all feeling unwell and it was decided that being in the comfort of their own rooms would be best. As we wound our way through the Palouse  it occured to me that the next day Foof and I would be going back to Spokane to get THE DRESS.  After a break from wedding dress shopping we looked over all of the pictures I had taken and realized one of the first dresses was The one. 

Sumaya reminded me that it would be Memorial day and the bridal shop might be closed. I quickly looked on my phone and sure enough it was. I called Fattima and informed her of the news and asked if she wanted to go as soon as we returned home.  She agreed. Within three hours we were at the shop eagerly waiting to try the special dress on one last time!

A helpful young lady at the counter sighed and told us that they had just sold the dress! She checked the immediate area as well as Seattle and it seemed the dress was not to be found! We decided to try our second choice and while it was beautiful it was just not the same!

Feeling a bit deflated I spoke with one of the women and asked if there was anything else. Fattima feels she looks best in a tight waist with a bit of poof and so the clerk went to work searching for another option. Minutes later she came back with a very glamorous dress that had not been put out on the floor yet and Foof would be the first to try it on! It was a match!

We both agreed that things do indeed happen for a reason and this dress was a way better fit than our original choice! She feels like the princess that she is and Ben was thrilled that there was a happy ending!

It’s official, Foof said yes to the dress!33706732_2009681722628052_8548575895185522688_n

  1. This is so exciting, Lynn! I loved reading this post and had my deja vu. My daughter let me accompany her too together with two friends for choosing her wedding dress. And the one she picked was also a dress never been tried before her. Isn’t it such a moving moment when you see her in the dress that seems to be just made for her? We all had goosebumps when she wore that one dress which in the end, she chose.

  2. It’s quite enlightening to read that you’re so happy and excited, Lynn. Way to go! I can’t wait to see the wedding photos. Also, I was hoping that sometime, you could put up a picture with all your children and their names, like a name tag sort of. I’d like to see all of them, I get confused with the names and faces sometimes.

  3. Isn’t it wonderful when things work out so well?!

    I didn’t even try on my own wedding dress when I initially saw it, because I knew it would be out of my price range. It turned out, though, the day we were at the bridal shop they were having a trunk show for the designer of the dress. With the discount from that, it was within a range where I could get it. I tried it on, and it was absolutely perfect.
