I have to share something that happened yesterday. It's a story that every girl can enjoy or relate to, but my purpose for posting is twofold. #1 I want to remember and #2 I want all you moms of young children to know that you don't have to worry about your children growing out of the saying silly things stage.
Tuesday ish Bridezilla (BZ) thought she found "THE" (pronounced thee) dress, but we didn't have time to wrap up the sale right then. BZ had to go to work. No worries. We have pllllennnnty of time. But the next day, Margo, our salesperson calls us and says "I forgot to tell you about the coupon we have online. It's for 50-150 off of your purchase, but the coupon expires on Saturday. And, we got some new dresses in." So we were like well, we better make sure we get there before Saturday then. Thursday, we looked into wedding dress rental. (Click here if that interests you. They have VERY good customer service and the dresses were CLEAN, which was something we didn't find at the other rental place in our area)
Anyway, yesterday, we went back to the place. Bridezilla had a new salesperson (lets call her Jane because I can't remember her name). Anyway, Jane encouraged her to try on a couple more styles of dresses. Because, at that point, BZ had only tried on the ballroom style. And, just in case you are wondering, there are 3 basic styles of dresses:
All wedding dresses fall into one of those categories. Whew, now that we got THAT out of the way....
So, to make a long story short, she ended up liking the style that she thought she was sure she didn't want. And after a long and drawn out (and by that, I mean, it's not exciting enough to tell you about) process of actually deciding on THE "THE" dress, Bridezilla has a brand new favorite. Something she looks absolutely stunning in. I almost choked up several times while she had it on, but I guess that isn't really part of this story. (Sorry. Sometimes I get off track)
OK- so we're talking with Jane about the coupon and the alterations. The coupon says that you have to buy your dress and 3 accessories, and depending upon the total, you get X amount off.
I promise the punch line is coming:
So, Bridezilla's new dress has a bit of extra room in the bust. Jane tells us it's no big deal, it can be fixed with alterations and some padding if she wants. BZ asks if there's any way she can put the padding in to see what it does. It worked wonders. So, BZ turns to Jane and says "Do boobs count as an accessory?" We all busted up laughing! It was pretty funny. And, in case you're wondering, no, "boobs" are NOT an accessory, they're an alteration.
I will not post pictures of the actual dress until the wedding is over. Sorry. But, I will tell you that she chose the sheath style.
