Bridesmaid Dress Fitting

What a weekend guys. Seriously, I had the most amazing, crazy, fun weekend and I am absolutely exhausted. I don't think I've ever done so much running around in my life!

I will post about Christina and Adrian's wedding as soon as possible, but let me tell you, their wedding was just incredible! I have never been to a wedding like this before. It was full of lots of vodka drinking, Russian dancing and instruments I've never seen, chanting, traditional songs..etc., etc. Of course, Christina was ASBOLUTELY STUNNING, she was glowing the entire day. I cannot WAIT to post about this wedding.

But before I get to that, I have to share my amazing day Saturday with my bridesmaids, minus Cassie :(. I got into Pennsylvania late Friday night after having way too much fun at Kate's Happy Hour that night. Saturday morning, Smith and Sister Melissa met up at my parent's house so we could carpool together. The other three girls were meeting us at the Dress Fitting.
Smith, Me, Melissa!
From there, we headed out to Bridals by Sandra for our 11:30 appointment. The car ride was great. I was really looking forward to some quality catch-up time with Smith and Melissa, and that's exactly what it was. Molly was there when we arrived, and Mandy and Mal joined us a little later after hitting some major traffic coming from New Jersey. At the dress shop, the girls tried on a sample of the dress so we could see how beautiful they looked in it, and then got measured. Once that was all taken care of, I was finally able to show them my wedding gown!! They didn't think that I would want to show them because I'm keeping it a secret, but I'm not keeping it a secret from them! I was so excited to show them my dress, and to see it again for myself. As the great, and wonderfully trained bridesmaids they are, they all loved it, and "oh'd" and "ah'd" exactly as I had hoped they would, and just enough for me to get giddy and excited about my dress all over again.
That's my dress in the Garment bag to the right!!

Free kiffles and pecan tassies! Can my Bridal Salon get any better??
After the fitting, my mom made a reservation for us at this adorable restaurant in downtown Nazareth called Bistro on Main.
The town was having their Halloween Day parade that day, so we had to park a few blocks away and walk, but it was a beautiful Fall day.

The parade went on the whole time we were in eating our lunch, which was highly entertaining! The food there was good, it was a cute, little restaurant which just had the six of us and this adorable older couple eating there. The woman (who took the picture below) came up to talk to us because she overheard us talking about weddings. It turned out, she and her husband had just gotten married 8 days ago, and they were in town from Florida visiting his daughter! They were a really cute couple and she was so excited to talk to us about weddings and asked me a ton of questions. When they left she told us we made her day, and she wishes me the best of luck. She totally made my day, too!
The restaurant was pretty took them a loooong time to make our food: which consisted of salads and paninis..I guess they were waiting for the lettuce to grow?? But, I really can't complain because it allowed us to have an extra long chance to hang out. Who knows when we'll all be able to get together again? It may not be until the Bachelorette party, or even the wedding, though I sincerely hope that's not the case. This forced us to just stop, for once, for about 3 hours and just do nothing but catch-up, and honestly it was awesome. I had a whole list of wedding related things I wanted to go over with them, and realized I didn't even get a chance to go over half of my things because we kept going off on so many other tangents and stories! I'll have to email the rest of my bullet points to them this week (I bet they're really excited haha). My only wish for the day is that Cassie was able to join us.

My mom was treating us to lunch, which was such an awesome treat and so generous of her to do! We only have one thing to say to her:
Thanks for an amazing Saturday afternoon Ladies, I love you all, and I'm getting so pumped!

It sounds like a fabulous time! My bridesmaids lived all over the country, so I was only able to shop with my sister. It's awesome that you were able to be there while they all tried on the sample.

Thanks Ladies! Yea, it's so hard to get everyone in one place at one time...just scheduling this with the 5 of them was enough to make my head spin!

Who would have guessed that a 3 second thank you video would bring tears to my eyes? I am so glad you guys had so much fun and reading your blog about your day with your girls made me so happy. It was just what I was hoping for all of you. And if I do say so myself-that was a great picture I took of you, Sister, and Smith! Love you lots <3
