BACK TO QUESTIONS...
Thank you SO, SO, much for fulfilling my bridal fantasy! I could not have asked for more (except to be able to stay forever in the image you created). The dress fit perfectly, the makeup was spectacular, and everyone who attended including the groom were so welcoming I have teared up since then thinking about it. When I saw myself in the gown I had butterflies in my stomach and I still get them when I think about it.
For anyone who is questioning the expense of the full bridal fantasy my opinion is "just do it". Like so many things surrounding my femme self, my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.
