Here Comes the Bride

I think that I have mentioned that my daughter, Sarah is getting married this September.  Mike and Sarah got engaged in Disney World last year.

I love the Wedding Song, and it's especially lovely when played by a piano.

Sarah and I went to find her dress several months ago, and the dress arrived.

So, yesterday Sarah invited me, Mike's mom, the bridesmaids and maids-of-honor to see her in THE DRESS.  When Sarah stepped out of the dressing room, she looked radiant in her beautiful dress.  I will share the big reveal on the wedding post.

The girls were also there to try on dresses for the big day.  They were trying on dresses for the bridesmaid and maid-of-honor dresses.  Sarah has chosen her best friend. Amanda and her sister, Ashley to be her maids-of-honor.

It was the second dress that they tried on that looked absolutely lovely on all the the girls.  I'll share them too when I post about the wedding.

Did I tell you that Brayden came along too?

Here are Ashley, Brayden, Sam, Sarah, Amanda, Stephanie and Raelyn.  We finished off the afternoon going out for lunch.

I am linking to Mary's Mosaic Monday today.  Weddings and new babies all in the same year.  What a lovely chapter...

Looks like a fun, happy day for everyone! I hope that Brayden isn't going to tell any secrets!

You've brought back memories of when our two daughters were getting married. It's an exciting and whirlwind time of things to do. It will be fun to see the wedding photos in the fall.

Congratulations to Sarah! My Victoria is getting married in August and we just got her dress Friday. Isn't it just one of the most wonderful outings? I look forward to seeing Sarah and the girls in their dresses:>)

Congratulations, Karen! I'm sure you are thrilled for your daughter. Wedding dress shopping is such a wonderfully emotional time. When I saw my daughter's dress I cried tears of joy. Enjoy all the wedding planning!

What a beautiful time for you and your daughter! When our daughter was going to go look at dresses, I was all geared up for an entire day of seeing gorgeous dresses, and then she went and found "The One" at the first shop we visited!!! I suppose that saved us from seeing more expensive ones catching her eye : )

Thanks for sharing the loveliness,
~ Violet
