I'm a terrible blogger these days, and I do hope you forgive me. I'd like to say that nothing has developed wedding-wise in the past month, but that is simply not true. One big thing happened this month.

I found THE dress. This is taken from my daily blog on the day I bought it:

Today, I bought a wedding dress. 

Chrissy, Stephanie and I met Doreen at Wood Islands to catch the first ferry of the day "over across't". We got to Halifax shortly after 9 and immediately went to the first and most important stop on our wedding tour: Winchester's.

Before I continue, let it be known that I did not expect to like a dress. He'll, I didn't expect to find a lace dress that fit me. But I found it. You know, IT. "the" dress that everyone talks about finding. I've had on dresses I really liked in the past, but nothing like this. I won't lie and say the clouds opened up and a beam of light was cast upon thy dress while a heavenly chorus sang. It was somewhat more ordinary than that. 

I saw it on the wall, and tried it on. Like a glove. I left knowing that it wouldn't be the last time I saw it. All day long it clung to my thoughts. The way it poofed when I spun in a circle. The way it hid my imperfections. The perfect mix of old and new. 

I went back and bought it, and got to ring the bell at Winchesters.

Wanna see a picture of the dress? Here you go! 

That's all you get, MUAHAHAHAHAHA. MUAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. This much power can go to a girl's head. 

We've also sort of pseudo decided on the Rec Centre up east for the reception/dance. Jacob doesn't want people who don't care about us to come to the party for a free place to drink, and I want to keep with my roots since I'm being married in Souris. Nobody's going to drive up east unless they love us, and I have fond memories of that centre from the time I was a wee child. My mom's also got a tree in her memory beside it, which might be nice for pictures. I think it feels right.

Thank you everybody for all of the lace tablecloths, doilies, single flower vases, and teapots. You just don't get a community like this in bigger places, and Jacob and I are so grateful for what we have. I can't wait to have a beer with you all on June 11, 2011.
