The story of Nadia and her wedding dress.

Monday, October 27, 2008

My dearest Nads, is engaged to be married Sept 26, 2009. A few things you need to know about her:

1). She's gorgeous. She's of Palestinian blood, with beautiful eyes and great skin tone.

2). She was a child prodigy, playing the piano with her toes, perfectly, at age 3 {what? so I made it up, it's close to the truth!}

3). She held the record at our school for most goals scored and assists given, until they started counting 2nd assists . . . which imo have no home in soccer, only hockey.

4). When I first met her, I thought she was a biotch. When she first me me, she thought I was obsessed with my boyfriend. We were both right . . . to an extent. :)

5). She's my person. For all of our differences, I don't think anyone understands me like she does.

So that's the background, I don't think it was very relevant to the story {sorry}, but it was fun! What you need to know about the great hunt for Nadia's wedding dress is that she's a very analytical and precise person . . . and after 5 wedding shops and 3 maybe dresses, there just wasn't THE ONE. Both Nadia and I were prepared for this though, as she also struggled with this in regards to the man she's choosing to marry. She never had the moment where it was decided he was the one. So we were prepared to be in for the long haul.

As we'd basically exhausted all decent places of interest in the Cities, I suggested that we try Mestad's in Rochester next. And that's where my participation in Nadia's wedding dress shopping ends . . . because she at a wedding fair ended up getting a VIP ticket for admittance to Mestad's sample sale a day early ! I can't even be upset or disappointed that I wasn't there for the moment she found the one, because she scored this Lazaro for $300!




It's a $4,000 dress!!!!!!!
