If you didn't see it Friday night, TLC loves their reruns so check it out, Say Yes to the Dress; Randy Knows Best, 10 Biggest Bridal Mistakes! It was short and sweet, funny and completely out of context! Meghan was very prepared, she had pictures and in fact told Audrey specifically what she wanted, what they failed to show; they didn't have the dress she wanted! So, back to dress shopping, t he next day we had two appointments, at bridal salons. And yes, they were scheduled for the correct day and time! The first place we visited was, Jay West Bridal in Haddonfield, NJ. Meghan was able to look through the racks and pick and choose what dresses she would try on. She chose 6 or 7 dresses. I have to say the girl we had was young, but she was fun and completely open to Meghan finding her perfect dress. Meghan liked a couple, but none were "her dress!" Even the flower girl Reagan got into shopping that day!
After a brief stop at Starbucks, we headed to our next appointment at The Bridal Garden, in Marlton, NJ. The Bridal Garden is set up much like Kleinfeld’s. You sit in a room; tell the consultant what you want and she goes and fetches what she thinks you want. The first dress came in and Meghan's face lit up! She put the dress on and I think she knew it was the one. My mom and I loved it, and were waiting for her to tell us she loved it too! It was a contender and she sent Mary Ellen off to find more dresses. She came back with two more, one was a no from the moment she put it on, but there was another one that caught Meghan's eye. But, it just wasn't perfect. In Meghan's words, "I've never been a simple personality," and this dress was much too simple! So, back to the first dress-the Kenneth Pool, not too simple, but a very elegant dress! Meghan called her fiancé and the deal was done!
