Picked up the dress yesterday. I can't believe I got my wedding dress at a place called Fantasy Bridal. Really? Fantasy Bridal?
Being new to Utah, I had not realized that it was such a hotbed for weddings. I should have known because many Mormons marry young and marriage is important so this means a lot of big weddings all the time. The wedding industry THRIVES here in Utah. And it is a land of young brides. I am a 43 year old bride in a sea of babies. Many of them could have been my babies. That is strange to me. I do not feel like I could have a 20 year old kid, but I could have.
When I called around to the bridal shops they would ask me if I was looking for a "modest" wedding dress. At first I thought maybe this was just a typical bridal thing...then I realized they were asking me this because if I was getting married in a Mormon temple, I would want a "modest" dress.
I will not be wearing a "modest" dress. But I did buy it at Fantasy Bridal. Ha!
