Sisterhood of the Travelling Wedding Dress – Part two

I’m feeling a little giddy today!

A few weeks ago, I shared a story with all of you that was pretty special to me.

Long story short, my wedding dress has taken a trip to North Carolina and was worn by a beautiful bride named Kristine for her wedding on April 9th.  I was so excited to “pay it forward” if you will.

Kristine had contacted me only about two weeks before her wedding to see if I would rent my dress to her.  Her e-mail was so sweet…she went on about how much love she had for her now HUSBAND!  πŸ™‚  I decided to give it to her…  There were so many things that felt right about passing my dress along to her…she was marrying the love of her life on my son’s birthday for one!  The fact that she is in North Carolina was another reason.  I lived in Virginia Beach for years and my favourite vacation spot is in the Outer Banks in North Carolina.  Basically…everything felt right about her wearing it.  That was the coles notes.

And now for the amazing bride who married her best friend on April 9th of this year.  I was so anxious that day!  I mean, I was celebrating my son’s birthday, but I was also hoping that Kristine’s day was absolutely perfect!  I’d like to think that I was there with them in spirit.  πŸ˜‰

Here are a few photos of Kristine and her husband from their wedding day.  ->

Sisterhood of the Travelling Wedding Dress

Good morning!!!  I am SO excited today!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, today is a fabulous day for a couple of reasons!  One – my youngest turns four today!  Two – my wedding dress is in North Carolina and will be worn by a fabulous bride there today.  πŸ™‚

I’m not sure how this lovely lady stumbled across my blog, but she’s been reading my posts for a while now and this is where the story begins.  Don’t worry, it isn’t too long!  πŸ™‚

I received an e-mail on a Saturday night just over two weeks ago asking me for help.  This obviously peaked my interest.  The first line was

I LOVE YOUR BLOG.  < –  Fyi – compliments get you anything you want!!!  Hahahaha!  Okay, maybe not but they do make things better (and make people smile).

She went on to tell me her story….I won’t get into all the details, but the most important ones are these:

She was getting married on my son’s birthday (she didn’t know this at the time) and they were planning their wedding in just over two weeks.

She went on to tell me how in love she is and how she is the luckiest person in the world.  Being a hopeless romantic, my heart was melting a bit (okay a lot).

Kristine told me how much she wanted to surprise him and look beautiful on her wedding day for him.  (just as and FYI, she is gorgeous!)

Here’s the kicker – she asked if she could rent my dress.  Huh?  Well, I still have my wedding dress and had planned on doing a trash the dress that never happened so I hadn’t even had in cleaned!!!!!!  Totally embarrassing!!!!!

Here’s a picture of me in the dress taken by the fabulous Angela Smith http://www.angelasmith.ca ->

I kind of felt like it was fate for Kristine to wear my dress on her special day.  

 So, I told her I would ship it to her and that she could have it with the expectation that she pass it along to someone else when she was done and that they send their story to me as well.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens!

I LOVED my dress.  It was the first one that I had tried on and I didn’t need to look at any others.  I felt like a princess on my wedding day and I hope she feels like a princess today as well!

Happy Tuesday!

Happy 4th birthday to my awesome little man!

Happy wedding day to you and the love of your life Kristine!

Have a fabulous day all!!!!
