Yesterday I went with my daughter M and her two bridesmaids to look at dresses for M's Wedding. We had a appointments at two Wedding dress shops, one in the morning and the other after lunch and a girly day of fun and laughter was planned.
The first shop was the smallest and very organised but seemed to be reluctant to let M actually try on any dresses she had chosen. The staff spent their time bringing their choice of dresses to the rail, dressing and undressing M in a conveyor belt fashion with about 6 dresses and tidying any away that the girls had chosen before they had chance to try them on. Then when the girls asked to try on some bridesmaid's dress we were told our time had run out and we would have to go back another day!.....I don't think so!
We had lunch in Shrewsbury with time to chat over the dresses M had tried on and then headed out for our second venue. I have a feeling neither of these will be the chosen one.
We were very early for our appointment but were still made very welcome and encouraged to hunt out any dresses they wanted to try on. They had a room full of bridesmaid's dresses and mother of the bride outfits and an other enormous room full of the most gorgeous wedding dresses you could ever imagine. We felt like we had gone to heaven :-)
Several hours later we left feeling totally wowed. M had tried on lots of really gorgeous dresses and fell in love with a lot of them but we don't think she has found THE dress just yet. I have a feeling we may be making many visits yet [.....mostly because it was such great fun] before we find THE ONE. :-)
