Weekend Festivies

Tomorrow, for the FIRST time in my life, I will put on a white dress!
I am crazy excited! My first appointment is at 11:30am.
Since I was young enough to remember, this day was always & IS a very important day!
Proms, Homecomings, Etc... Never was it okay to think of wearing a white dress! 
I know... I'm weird! 
What I'm really excited about is all my special ladies will be there for support &
witness this first experience with me.
Yes, I said ALL of them. It's funny because I've been a fan of Yes Say to the Dress
for a while now. My thought to large groups of people going with the Bride was always, NEVER!
Well, Never say Never!
My ladies are so excited for me. I asked each lady to be a maid for a reason.
Not just to buy a dress and stand next to me and look pretty! I want them to be apart of everything I go through. However, I do not expect them to come, nor do I expect them to be apart of everything that happens from now until September 3rd. But, if they want to be with me or if they can be with me... then of course they are welcomed to come! The world has not stopped because I am engaged, I know this!
I know I said you would meet them some time this week, but I've been rather busy.
 Hopefully next week I can introduce my Maids! There are nine! Three sisters & six friends!
My Mother is a goddess to me! Behind Aaron, she's my best friend.
This woman is everything to me. She will be apart of wedding dress shopping as well. Of course!
Most of us will be riding together in a 12 passenger van. We'll be picking one up on the way and one friend of mine lives in Savannah, therefore she will be meeting us there!
I am so excited and can't wait. I know all of it will seem REAL once that first dress goes on!

Tomorrow is a exciting day for my Groom too!
The Atlanta Falcons will be playing Green Bay tomorrow night!
These two teams for fighting to stay in the playoffs! It's been a LONG time since Atlanta
has made it this far! Aaron is super happy!
He & his family are very big Falcons fans! We are going over our friend, Paul's house
to watch the game. Paul & his wife, Amanda are big Green Bay fans! It should be interesting!

I felt the same way about white dresses... Not until my wedding festivities did I wear one!! Good luck on the dress and even if you don't like one on the hanger try it on... It just might be the one(that's my story anyway). I found you blog on Broke Brides and am now following your journey to the alter : )
