Truth be told about “ #TheDress ” story.
I had a dress before I had a proposal 🤣
And no it’s not because I’m a major planner but it is solely bc my awesome #MaidOfHonor & sissy @keeshaolander .
It was my birthday 6.4.19 & I didn’t have many plans so my sis said let’s go dress shopping. I truly wasn’t that into it as obviously I wasn’t even engaged yet & no offense but I truly didn’t think I would buy my dress in Twin Falls when I had all those trips to LA coming up.
Long story short what I had in mind was browsing for 5 minutes & trying nothing on. We had the whole shop to ourselves & Keesha the selfless fun sissy she is says let’s play a game! We each pick out 2 dresses & you try them on, whoever picked out the dress we like the most wins the game. Haha no money no nothing just you win, the end lol.
The fun worker lady that was in the store said ooo please can I play I have 1 I want to see on too (she chose the high/low) one.
Before even trying any on I loved one Keesha chose & saved that one to try on last. I had noooo idea the GIDDINESS that was about to takeover my soul lol! But O my! I’m almost embarrassed at these videos but I also cherish that these moments were caught as this was my 1st time ever trying on Wedding Dresses & to have Bryan in mind & walking down the isle to him in one of these made me feel all the special love giddy feelings you are supposed to feel!
I can’t share the final dress yet as it is THE DRESS & that is 1 tradition I want to keep & not have Bryan see it until I walk down the isle to him. So yes, Keesha won her own game & I can’t thank her enough for one of my most memorable unplanned days!
Once I put on the final dress I knew right away, we called my mom to come down to the shop & FaceTimed our other sis Kelsey & Bryan’s mom, Robin.
Going in the one thing I said was I want something that’s different/unique about the dress not just another white dress.
Thank you mom for gifting me with one of the most treasured outfits I’ll
ever wear & thank you Keesha for this unforgettable day!!! 👰🏻 Love you!!
We dusted the Larimar gown with shimmering beading all the way from its illusion bodice to the sweep train (and added a peplum so it’s that much extra). We can’t guarantee you’ll outsparkle the stars, but you just might. #willowbylarimar#willowbybride
