I’ve never been a lipstick-wearing, all-dolled-up kind of girl. I can probably count on both hands the number of times I’ve worn a dress to work over my 15-year career. But putting on my wedding dress on my wedding day was one of the most amazingly girly moments of my life. Yowzers, it was thrilling.
And it was thrilling for my mother, too. Because we live two hours apart and both have busy schedules, she saw me in the wedding dress for the first time that day. I’d felt guilty about buying the dress without her seeing it, but getting her initial reaction on film (or SD card) made up for it 100%.
