So, all you new MOBs, don’t waste a single moment just because you think you have a year or more to plan. From picking out THE special dress, to picking out YOUR special dress, to choosing the venue, the flowers, the music, and the magic ingredients that Pinterest provides, do as much as you possibly can as fast as you can to alleviate stress, chaos, and words that you can’t take back Each precious selection truly is magical, because your daughter will belong to someone else soon.
Out of many precious moments, I would have to say my favorite was when my daughter appeared in the dress that couldn’t possibly look any better on any other bride! At eleven o’clock in the morning, a champagne toast and a guiltless check sealed the moment that had taken twenty dress appointments to arrive at. True Story.
